If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’d know I suffered massive migraines for the past few weeks. There are times I cry hard just because that relieves the head a little. I think the cause of this was from my weak body after returning from the KK trip. When I’m weak I tend to get slight flus which sometimes tend to be sinus (I get confused between them). Then there’s a sudden influx of a couple of art projects that my mind couldn’t really handle everything all at once, and BOOM! My medical bill this month amounted to more almost RM400 and I had 4 days of sick leave.
Anyways, I’m feeling all better now, back on the track and running full steam ahead! Every minute of my day is used to the fullest and I’ve never felt more fulfilled! Really can’t wait till all the projects are finished, I’ll probably book a room on a resort and sip on champagne. *day dreams…*
So yeah, tons of work and little time is how I’d describe life right now. Do follow me on Instagram (@daphysal) and Twitter where I’d update a tad more often. My artwork’s hashtag is #artsydaphy and travels are under #daphywanders
Here are a few sneak peaks of new views of the city. Great thing about my mural jobs are that I get access to some interesting places before they are opened to public. The not so great part is, it’s not open to public yet because some places can be toooo ‘under construction’ which can be quite uncomfortable.
That’s me and the Sony B Trainer that Sony so geniusly loaned to us for the Kuching Marathon run. They let us try the device for a week and for the run, then get us to review it for them. In the meantime they also get tons of publicity when we post up pictures with the cool gadget. Personally I think it’s a great device, just a little pricey and I don’t like having things in my ears when I run, so I haven’t bought one.
While painting I always enjoy having some company around as it can get quite depressing just painting all day (I don’t know why, art can be very emotionally draining for me). Hence, I’m super grateful for having the sweetest friends and boyfie to accompany me while I’m working in the scary building. I need to write about these two people one day, they are freaking awesome!
Finally, here’s us after a long day of work in our currently very polluted city.
It has been 2 weekends (3.5 days) working on this 10 meter long piece, and here’s a short something that’s always on the back of my mind that I’d like to share when I’m painting murals:
Yes, painting a large vertical object is definitely tough and unglamorous. I often ask myself why I do this to myself as I don’t seem to be lacking anything, I have a degree and a great office job, why slave away like a labourer everytime I have the chance? Well, I guess that’s what they call passion.
