I know this is totally unrelated and very :offtopic:/> but I just wanna say... OMG YOU ARE AN AMAZING PAINTER!!!! *dies*

Yeah. Just had to say that.

And your garden is gorgeous. I'd love to come visit someday. And maybe watch you paint. And learn. Coz I can't paint. Or draw.

Skechid- Um thanks aboutthe painting. believe it or not I only started painting again last August before that it was way back in high school.

I use to work in Real estate and now I just manage our families properties which affords me a lot of time for gardening and painting. I am hoping to build a career out of painting now.

CCT- I think the Thais would give us a run for our money

ARE YOU SERIOUS!?!?!? Omg... you're... you're.. just wow. Can you teach me how you do it?? I wanna learn to paint... and I love your paintings. Someday if I ever have the money and can afford it I wanna commission you to paint me something. My favourite's the young monk.

Skechid - I am just learning myself. I was always creative but I never considered myself to be artistic which is why I never pursued it in college and took Business Management instead. For masters it was Urban Planning.

I was getting sick of office life so I moved into the family business but in the back of my mind I had this itch to nurture the right side of my brain-- (I was using the left side too much for too long) I sterted to write, do photography, do the blog and to paint.

I am still inconsistent and there is a lot of trial and error but it's the most fulfilling thing I have ever done.

I am trying to have enough works for a portfolio so I can approach a gallery to represent my work.

You can find a lot of instructional videos in Youtube

Well I'me hoping to get famous someday -- I kind of let go of a pretty good career to pursue this.

But you gotta follow your heart and go with what makes you happy I guess. You only have one life to live
