This unfinished painting sat in a corner of the study for the longest time and when the time came for the big move from Singapore to Jakarta, the DGW made the bold decision to let it go.
It was a painting that she started 20 years ago for a prestigious competition. Even though she was unable to complete it in time, the DGW harboured hopes to see it finished. It seemed such a waste to let go of something she had invested time, effort and money on. However, hopes remained hopes and as time passed the DGW forgot how to continue the painting. Or maybe she never knew how to do it in the first place. Perhaps both painter and painting were trying too hard to be philosophical and ended up cerebral and distant.
Chucking it out is definitely one of the best things the DGW could have done for herself. A brand new canvas for a brand new city and the license to create as she likes.
Woohoo! Freedom feels good!
The DGW is never looking back!
What about you? What is the best thing you have done for yourself in 2012 and what do you look forward to in 2013?
