It's a great place with its uniqueness
I was inspired with some words from a lady from Japan, that no matter what happened in this country and whatever people tell you about this place, it would be nice to have something to remember from the country you live in. Again you could aways complaint about anything. But it's all a matter of choices, right. Whether you want to be happy or want to be grumpy :) Most of the times, I prefer to stay home because it's safer than to hit the road and explore the city. So far I went to downtown only twice :) But, I want to make the most of my time here anyhow. Nowadays, I learn as long as I well prepared, manage my time and route, and go in a group, mostly we'll be fine. So I started to do something beyond my routines. I begin with painting/drawing class with a teacher from India. She's been here for a while, was graduate from an art school in UK and found many good things here. She's a great teacher, in term of always encourage us to go beyond our comfort zone and challenge ourselves, and always supportive considering we're all just a beginner. And she never said a bad word about our painting/drawing. Here's some of my assignment. Some of them finished with my teacher's help. Some are mine alone. I'm trying to do typical objects in Trinidad so I could bring it back home as a personalized souvenirs. But, as you can see I have to learn a lot in drawing. As an activity, drawing is fun because the end result always surprise you :) And I learn one other thing, that as long as you happy and enjoy doing it, the end result is not always important. Because you know that a 'good' painting/drawing is a very subjective matter. Hope you enjoy as much as I am when I did it. I'm looking forward of your critiques.
