Housekeeping

Yesterday, did a bit of housekeeping at the kids cabinets. Rearranged the books and throw the unwanted stuffs.


Anastassia has been drawing comic books for some time. I think she started at Std3. During mengemas2 semalam, I found in her cabinet, an uncompleted copy. Agaknya dia taknak lagi because normally she would keep her "valuable" stuffs somewhere else. She drew this early last year kut.... rasa2nya la....




I remember time ni la she told me that bila besar she wants to be an artist. And I remember sitting beside her and slow talked to her....... hehe

Actually, there's a lot of things on my mind..... tapi takda mood la nak write it down...... next time I guess.....

Hi Helena,

Salam Ramadan. Semoga puasa berlalu dengan bagus untuk Helena sekeluarga.

Your daughter's artwork is good. She is an aspiring artiste, isn't she? I know you want her to achieve academics excellence rather than artistic one. But perhaps she can balance both of them well, esp with your guidance.

eeee... very very the professional. Piece macam tu kira scrap ye? Uwaaaa!!! I wonder how the excellent ones are.

ramadhan mubarak to you and family

Helena said...

my heart,

Mesti Anastassia tersenyum simple if she's to read yr comment. hehe. Mmm..... she has a lot of sketches lying around the house.... i guess the talent is there.

But do you ever wonder the time spent to do this? Patutla homework selalu lambat siap! hehe.....

Helena said...

jorazak..... thats what i told her... part time boleh.... full time..... baik jangan.....

Teringat Helena last year, when her painting were bought by parents during Children's Day.... paintings tu siap diframekan..... lagi terujala dia..... the teacher sold her paintings (painting saja, no frame) around RM35 each kut...

IBU KUMBANG said...

Ayoyo! akak.. gifted la anak2 ni..

Helena said...

Hi madam,

salam ramadhan....

Anastassia loves art. Yup you are right, tats why I've nothing against her persuing art as a serious hobby.... but dengan syarat academics come first.

actually cikgu seni dia dok pujuk dia isi borang untuk masuk sekolah seni..... there's one in Johor.... Helena harap the teacher tak kecik hati when she declined.

this girl of mind is the type who can gaze up the sky for hours.... just to admire how beautiful the sky looks... how the clouds form... and the color of the sky during sunset.... she would memorize the scenery so that she can paint it later... Her buta seni mom memang tak paham..... for what? i asked, again and again.... hehe

Helena said...

Hi there D, salam ramadhan to you and family......

Haha.... ini category scrap? takdala, sama aje the quality.... its just that she did not finish doing it..... tak da idea untuk jalan cerita kut.... hehe....

Kat rumah ni, sketch pads and artblock memang laris..... Pu3 pun dah start mengikut kakak dia..... sigh.....

Helena said...

ibu kumbang..... mmm.... dia dah minat.... hari2 berjam2 mengadap buat tu pun tak kisah..... itula hasilnya....

Lepas UPSR ni agaknya nak attack melukis la tu. She hasnt been sketching and painting since early this year. Mom forbids her ...hehe... Itula sbb dia all out during kelas seni in school and during competitions..... hehe.

Orang lain buat homework seni sejam aje.... Dia buat sampai 4 jam.... serious!

wanshana said...

Only one word -

"WOW!"

:)

(And another two : That's impressive!)

kc said...

goodness gracious, i lurveee all those paintings. so unique! tabik spring at yr doter who can produced such artistic drawings at a very young age...fantastic!

if u can propose to any calender publishers and have them published, i'd love to have one if they sell it. i mean it!

Marisa said...

sukanya dgn lukisan2 tu.... anastasia bukan setakar pandai melukis... but good in imaginination

IBU said...

Wow!! Cool stuff there. I paling suka the shower screen one. That is sooooooo "perceptive" of her. Teringat kartun Lat, i think Kampung Boy, the perspective from the top of the stairs. So unique. And Calvin & Hobbs, the perspective of a child's favourite toy.

Now that I've mentioned Kampung Boy & Calvin & Hobbs, hmm....maybe I should slow talk to my 7 yr old Hafiz (psstt... the opposite though, rajin2 ler melukis kartun, anak ibu oiii!!!)

suria said...

Selamat berpuasa to Helena and your family.Your daughther memang talented.Bravo to her.

13may said...

hehhe hehhe...

berbakat!

:)

Helena said...

wan shana.... hehe helena as a buta seni mom ternganga jugak tengok....

I guess she'll be doing a lot of these after UPSR....

Helena said...

kc.... are you serious? i know they are good.... but not THAT good... mmmm....

But thanks for the pujian yang melambung tu..... also for giving such a good idea.... to get it published via calender.... mmmm teringat that 11 yr old girl from Bangi who released her book few months back.... and book no2 is also on the way.....

thx kc.... i doubt it would happen.... but thanks anyway.... for the confidence, for appreciating the art....

Helena said...

marisa.... good imagination comes from hours and hours of daydreaming and berangan..... hehe.

Helena said...

ibu.... hey i like the shower scene tu..... also the part where the girl tengah pilih baju....

Maybe after UPSR I'll change my tone.... hehe. actually bila lagi nak kasi dorongan kan..... esp bec i dont think she can continue doing this bila masuk sekolah menengah.... not many competitions for the secondary level too i noticed. so these last few months.... Helena kasi chan la....

Hafiz can sure be a good artist/cartoonist. His imagination is quite good jugak kan.... And seriously, in the pengguna competition tat i want to last month, the 1st prize for the best cartoon was RM5K.....

Helena said...

hi suria.... salam ramadhan to you too.....

thx.... rasanya bakat from my hubby and my mom tu....

Helena said...

13 may.... thx....

Bakat tu mmg ada.... tapi kadang2 bakat tu buat Helena pening.... hehe
