在第一堂課裡, 老師們藉由人體素描方式來評量我的繪畫能力和程度. 老師給我選擇我想要畫的圖片, 請我照著畫, 因為觀察力對繪畫來說很重要!
我選擇一個禮拜兩天上課, 而且分別在兩個不同的協會. 我會去繪畫課的原因是因為我想學自己在家不常畫的東西, 例如 : 人體素描 , 風景畫和油畫... 諸如此類 (在家我只畫壓克力畫). 我希望能夠學到更多技巧, 因為想畫得更好. 此外, 這是一個跟其他人互動的好方法, 因為我極度需要 ! 天天自己在家令我沮喪.
我只有對藝術方面的東西才有耐心, 而且也是我最愛做的事情. 成為一個藝術家一直都是我的夢想, 但是我之前太膽怯畏縮 (總是以太多藉口來打消念頭). 我爸是第一個鼓勵我畫畫的人, 小時候也常常詢問他對我畫作的感想. 當我國三時, 我想去台北念美術學校, 可是我媽強烈反對, 當時她的不諒解令我怨恨她, 但也改變不了什麼. 然而, 在我能夠自我決定人生方向的時候, 我的優先權改變了! 賺錢變得很重要, 因為我想去旅遊, 想看看世界, 所以, 成為藝術家的夢想暫時就被遺忘了.
很多人都認為藝術家並不是一個真正的職業, 因為不穩定而且也賺不了什麼錢... 第一位跟我說那些話的人就是我媽! (現在她只希望我能過的快樂! 另外, 我為了法國的婚禮畫了三幅畫, 她看到很多人稱讚我的畫, 所以跟我說她為我感到驕傲). 我真的很高興我媽支持我想做的事, 這也令我更加下定決心去追求我從以前就有的夢想 !
我現在每天都會畫畫, 而我第一個計畫是至少要畫八幅畫來做為作品集. 外星人已經找到兩個可供畫家擺畫及賣畫的餐廳.
是的! 我想以賣畫來賺點錢, 目前, 我不認為這是一個正當職業, 不過這是一個開始. 最重要的是, 我有一位不論我做什麼都支持我的老公, 只要我開心就好! 當然, 這沒保證將會是一個成功的職業 (沒有任何職業是有保證能夠成功到底的!), 不過, 至少我正朝著將夢想實現的方向而努力 (終於開始!)
I drew those sketches in the art classes that I have been going since this week.
At my first classes, the teachers wanted to know my drawing ability and level, so they asked me to pick the images, and copy them exactly. It was all about observation. The classes are two times a week, and in two different associations. What I expect to learn in class will be something I don't usually do at home, for example: human body sketch, landscape and oil paintings...etc. (I only paint with acrylic paint at home).
I would like to learn more and improve my drawing/painting skills. Moreover, I need to go out and interact with people, and this is a good way to do it. Staying home by myself every day is just too depressing.
Art is the only thing I have patience for, and it's what I love to do. To become an artist is what I always wanted to do, but I was too scared to become one (I always use excuses to give up that thought). My father was the one who encouraged me to draw at first, and I would ask his opinion on my art works all the time. When I was younger, I wanted to go to an art school in Taipei, but my mom wouldn't let me. I was mad at her, but it didn't change a thing. However, when I grew old enough to be able to make life decisions on my own, I was too busy making money so that I could travel instead of becoming an artist.
Most people think that being an artist is not really a career. It's unstable and no money. My mother was the first one who told me that. Now, she just wants me to be happy (She was proud of me when she saw people complimented on three paintings that I painted for my wedding in France). I am thrilled that my mom supports what I love, and it helped me to determine what I have always wanted to do.
I have been painting every day, and my first project is to paint at least eight paintings as a collection. My alien husband found two restaurants which allow artists to put paintings on the wall for sell. Yes, I am thinking about making money by selling my paintings. I wouldn't call it a career yet, but it's a start. What's important is that I have a husband who supports me in anything I do, as long as it makes me happy!
Of course, there is no guarantee that it will turn out to be a successful career (There is no guarantee in any career!), but at least I am trying to make my dream come true (Finally!).
