I have always been in love with the Singapore skyline and it's not just because it's beautiful and awe-inspiring, it's more of how I look at it every time and remind myself that I am proud and blessed to be a part of this country. No matter which part of the globe we live in or how far we travel, our hearts are always, and will always, be with this place that we call home.
I was half joking when I mentioned to the husband that maybe we should paint the Singapore skyline somewhere in our new house because it would be simply splendid if we could look at it all day long. It turned out that we made it come true, even if it was just a small-scaled one, and Angel's art teacher at heART Studio, Teacher Elma, kindly obliged to help us with it.
Isn't it just superb that the teacher-student pair got to come together to work on this project? Well, Angel has been with the art studio since she was three and we've definitely come a long way. The teachers are more like family to us because we see them every week and we were just so thankful that Teacher Elma and Teacher Syafiq (he is Ariel's art teacher and I'll share more on their project in the next post) reached out a helping hand and agreed to do this specially for us. So, in Creativity 521 today, I'll be showing you on how they went about painting this beautiful Singapore skyline and turning our dreams into reality.
One of the challenges was the Singapore Flyer because with its thin lines and capsules, it would require a steady hand in order to paint it perfectly. I was quite impressed that Teacher Elma let Angel handle some very small and detailed areas and even more impressed when she managed to do it with patience and precision. Yup, this art lover has definitely improved by leaps and bounds from when she first began.
Till more updates on the house and more DIY inspiration to come!
