在2007年的冬天, 我第一次嘗試把心中的構圖畫在畫布上, 而當初會選擇用壓克力顏料是因為乾得快, 也比油畫顏料便宜! 那時, 所有的治療已結束, 但白血病還是常占據心頭, 所以想畫的題材也跟白血病有關.
這幅畫想表示的是: 自己身體裡的健康細胞們被自體產生的癌細胞給攻擊和侵蝕的景像! 因為只是一種幻想, 所以畫裡我用黑色來代表著癌細胞, 而紅色則是代表著紅血球! 事實上, 當初我對顏料的使用和筆觸的運用都不了解, 所以那是種新的挑戰! 當時在畫的時候, 我也了領悟到為何有些人會花好幾星期或好幾個月的時間來完成一幅畫作~
其實, 我不太滿意這幅作品, 因為在我腦中的想像比我畫出的成果差太多! 我想, 我需要更多的時間和努力才能畫出令自己滿意的作品吧!
不過, 我覺得過於嚴苛也不是個好主意. 不管是壓克力還是油畫顏料, 畢竟這是我人生中真正第一幅帆布畫, 題材跟我的人生也很貼切. 所以, 我還是希望大家可以用不嫌棄的眼光來欣賞這幅畫喔~ 感謝各位了!
I finished this piece in the winter of 2007. Some of you may have already seen this, but it's ok, you can see it again.
I had never painted on canvas before, and it was my first painting for real. I chose to use acrylic paint because it dries fast and it's cheaper than oil paint. However, for someone like me who had no idea how to paint at the time, it was indeed a new challenge. While I was painting it, I understood why people would spend weeks or months to finish a piece...
The idea of this painting is that I gave the cells in my body a new vision. I tried to visualize the situation when cancer cells are attacking the healthy cells. To be honest, I am not very satisfied with the result. I had a better version in my head before I put it on canvas. However, it was my first time, and I am just hoping that I will keep getting better in the near future!
I am so anxious to see myself to be able to draw and create something that could satisfy my greedy soul, as I am aware that it takes time and practice! It's too soon to tell now, but I won't give up!
