Photo Hunters : Art

photo hunters

Today's topic is Art.

Presenting a familiar piece of art - which is none other than my one and only weblog profile picture "The Lion and The Lamb". I saw a similar picture in the magazine and loved the picture, so I drew and painted one myself, with Pentel Oil Pastel. That was in the mid 90's, and I still have the painting with me up to this day!! Might be I should get myself another box of oil pastel again... and continue back the abandoned hobby...

Aha, so now we know the story behind the lion and the lamb, or do we? LOL... Ok, maybe not the whole cheonghei story, but this will do, for starters, as a prelude.. How the lamb turned into shish kebab, and the lion into sotong?... See Ghost again, I think! Very blur blur these days ~ don't even know what I am talking about anymore.. CCF!

rinnah said...

Wow... you drew your own picture? That's so cool. I can't even draw stick figures... kekekekeke!

Jenn in Holland said...

I am voting that you paint again! This is very lovely. A talent like that should be pursued. :)

hanneng said...

Dr Chen. Nice job

Lynn said...

I guess you should paint again. Great talents shouldn't be put to waste. :)

julie said...

You should paint again. It is not only art, it is also a form of therapy, an expression of feelings and thoughts as well as putting to good use talents that you have.

Incog & Nito said...

Oh you should paint again. That is a lovely picture. Happy weekend.

lynnx01 said...

So beautiful! It's good to pick up something you abandon. This holiday I am going to take up guitar and piano again.

As for the phrase 'The Lion and The Lamb', it reminds me of Chris Tomlin's How Great Is Our God.. a really nice song!

Doreen said...

ehon said...
