Portrait of @anejosua ~ Art by Red Dust

3년 전

Magic

Patience, kindness, courage, and persistence wins the day.

I decided to add color and splash. That's how I see my Son from another mother.

I call him Ane, short for @anejosua because it is easier to spell out when I am on my iPad. Ane is a 17 year old young man from Indonesia that loves Steemit and calls me Mom. He kept asking me to teach him how to paint. I can't do that since I am still learning how to paint myself and I don't want to teach him any bad habits I may have picked up. However because of his persistence, patience working at befriending me, and goofy kindness, I took a break from my projects to draw and paint a portrait. I used a style I just learned, I think it's called splash painting and it reminds me of Ane's energy, very colorful and all over the place. I hope you like it @anejosua. I am not a chatty person and avoid chats, plus I am friendly but not that friendly....I am a grumpy Grandma!

You are welcome 🌞, you have a wonderful face.

Very beautiful painting
Are you a professional :) @reddust

·

@wahyusaputra, no I am not a professional, I am just learning how to paint. However, I've been painting and drawing since I was a child, but never professionally.

·
·

But the result is amazing
Looks like you are a professional

·
·
·

Maybe I will be someday, that would be nice <3

I love all the colors you used and the meaning in your painting.
What message is the owl bringing ?
Have a nice day !

·

The owl represents wisdom in most mythology. What does youth need the most but wisdom to use all that energy wisely. Thank you @openheart, have a lovely weekend!

·
·

True wisdom is very important, pity it cannot be brought by an owl in real life :)
Its something we gain over the years through life and even that doesn't happen for some people :)
But we are all on the same road, just all on a different spot and its OK where ever you are on that road.
You have a great weekend as well @reddust !

Hahaha it's 1x1 @anejosua. Soon a wizard.

Youth is so magical, we have no clue what we are getting into...hahaha ;-)

@reddust, I spent 12 years living in Indonesia. I miss Indonesia so much.

Glad to hear that you have befriended @anejosua. We all have so much to learn. It is great that you have taken time to be his teacher.

·

Ane is my teacher too, we can learn together, @sumatranate, I want to visit Indonesia next year, hopefully I can take some of my steemit earnings and travel the world, visiting steemit friends and blogging too! Now that would be a dream come true. Plus do some meditation retreats in Thailand, Nepal, India, and Mongolia...hehehe

I agree - we all need to be willing to learn from each other. Isn't it great how Steemit provides such amazing opportunities?

Patience is the key to success. Kindness is a life that needs to be lived. Courage is the path to success. Persistence is the beginning to success.

·

That is lovely @husaini, well said, I agree!
