thanks so much for the great compliment. it's such a BIG boost to my ego...haha..at least someone read it! and LIKED it? WOW! you see the big grin on my face yet? or can you hear me giggling under my pillow?
your note to "shui ming" reminded me of a class i once took in college, that titled :"who said: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder?" it was, actually, an art class.but now that i think of it, it had nothing to do with art. the class spent 4 months talking about....everything but the artwork itself. ^_^
funny how your friend says:if you like the painting, then it is a good painting."
here's the question for my final forthe class:
what's the difference between good art & bad art?
good art exits and bad art don't
what's good and what's bad? good=you like, bad=you don't like. but something you like, may upset someone else; what you look at as a piece of junk, may be someone else's life-long treasure. (cliche, eh?) truth is, beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. as long as it makes you happy & brings a smile to your face, it's a good thing. but if just so happens that you don't like it, doesn't really mean it's bad...it simply means you don't like it =P (am I making sense? )
as i'm slowly typing this little note. a quick thought popped into my head. "that painting with feces on it!!" i'm sure you know what i'm talking about, after all, it was kinda the talk of the town a while back. guiliani wanted to stop support such "artwork" for he doesn't believe that it is art. what do you think? would you have gone & considered it art? or would you consider it simply as "poo-poo on canvas?" hmm....worth a thought a two. huh?
my hand hurts & my eyes sore..you know. i'm not feeling too "swallow-like" lately...(o, watch out, this is me whining..) ..instead....i'm beginning to sense "zi-wei"'s frustration when she had her fingers messed with, bumped unto a big rock, got sick, & then lost her sight. now i just have to wait for someone to lure me into a brothel.(worry not, ain't gonna happen) wait 'til you hear my story when i'm able to type faster..(this is gettin' just too frustrating..)
"type" to you soon. (hopefully) ^_^
