親愛的，最近好嗎？ 半年前就想寫信給你了，但這句「最近好嗎」卻很難說得出口。 因為我知道你過得不好，非常不好。但事實上，這半年多以來，世界上幾乎沒有一個地方過得好。
僅以此篇獻給我的好室友：Garbo姊姊。因為有你，我在英國的生活才會如此精彩。 今天切菜的時候，又不經意想起在英國生活的日子。 週間去上課，先在家裡吃過簡單的早餐。從家裡走路約15~20分鐘去公車站，再搭65路公車依車況約30分鐘至一小時到隔壁小鎮。到站後再走大約10分鐘，途經貴族超市、漂亮的小巷，最終抵達校園。時間若還早，先和同學去美術材料行逛一逛，或去學校食堂再吃點東西。用各種香草調味的香腸是我們的最愛，也是唯一能夠下嚥的食物。
The sky says, “Welcome back!” while the ocean laughs and gives me a big hug. The mountain just keeps smiling as usual, but I know how happy he is to see me home. I thought I wouldn’t miss them, but in fact, I did. I miss them so much even more than I could imagine. Yes, I’m back. I’m home. Hello, my dear friends! Time really flies. After studying in the UK for about two years, now I’m back in Taitung, Taiwan, my hometown. I finished my Master’s course and got the degree! YAYYYY!!! To be honest, now I’m still…
It was not really easy to get into the habit of writing a reflective review every week. I have to write four more reviews for the past weeks apart from this one. Alright, here we go.
I met a lady on the way to the bus station a few days ago. Her appearance was so eye-catching: orange and curly hair, red suit, and black glasses. As a result, I decided to make a little figure of her as my Day 2 project.
I tried soft pastel today and create this one to express my feeling of always worrying things too much. How I wish I could be the person who can be happy and without worrying things all day or even all life!
Have you ever thinking of working in a PALACE for your creative work? Then welcome to SOMERSET HOUSE STUDIO! In Taiwan, we have this kind of creator base too. But they are usually in old factories, not in a palace like this! In Somerset House Studio, creators can hire a desk or a whole room to run their business. At the meantime, they are allowed to use the workshops/machines for their works. The studio also holds events, workshops, and activities for “residents” to join and meet more creators who might be collaborators on the future projects. It is a really interesting place…
It was really a great pleasure to see Picasso’s portraits at National Portrait Gallery. I would like to see Master’s portraits and how he recorded his life with paintings. I thought it related to my project and my idea of “Record your story” as my manifesto. On the leaflet it wrote: “Picasso’s portraits epitomise the astonishing variety and innovation of his art. This major exhibition of over eighty works focuses on the artist’s portrayal of family, friends and lovers and reveals his creative processes as he moved freely between drawing from life, humorous caricature and expressive painting from memory.” The exhibition started…
