I was told by a certain someone that I have been moving slowly with my projects. I think of my projects as art hence I do not do it on clock work. I need to be inspired in order for me to make good ART. Sometimes I just make smaller projects just to poke that creative juice, just like today:
This vintage wood frames was given to us by The Hubster’s Grandma Dolores whom I am so fond of because of her wisdom and strength. Whenever we visit her she always reminds me of Grandma, Lola Afring. She is the matriarch of the family and when she left, it never seemed to be the same with the family. But I know that wherever I go, her heart is always with me.
I used ASCP Graphite and mixed it with CC Beckley Coal just because I feel like experimenting with both medium. Then I sealed it with ASCP Dark wax. I love the outcome of this color. It is so rich and really dark.
(Note: I am sending this frames to the Philippines via LBC box for a future project that I am sharing with you once it is settled. Crossing fingers!)
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow–
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than,
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up,
When he might have captured the victor’s cup,
And he learned too late when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out–
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far,
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit–
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.
