God is so smart and so clever that he decided not to bestow me the gift of being a drawing artist. Because of my being so egocentric, self-centered, narcissistic and self-obsessed, he knows that if He is to equipped me with such a talent, I would draw nothing but my self-portrait.
But since God is truly unpredictably generous, He let me encounter an awesome Drawing Master. He gave me the amazing chance to know Sam of .AM I DOING THIS RIGHT? blog
I have been fortunate to bump into the wordpress blog of Sam. His drawings posted on his blog gave me the impression that he indeed is a master drawer. I may not be the arbiter who determines a good art work from the bad, but with my pretty rich exposures to various drawings and artworks that I have personally seen from various museums in various parts of the world, I guess I know a good artwork when I see one.
A fine art creation for me is something that prompts me to feel or do something: unconsciously grow goosebumps, write about it, stare on it for minutes, take photos of it, find out more regarding its origin or simply be breathless about it.
I was so impressed with Sam’s drawings that I did not hesitate clicking likes and commenting on his blog posts. I was so impressed that I commented that “in case he run out of photos to draw, I can always volunteer and send mine” for him to work on.
Sam took it as a challenge and responded on my comment. I did not, of course, hesitated sending him my photo. And as expected, the one photo I choose includes me. Without telling Sam the location where the photo was taken, he surprisingly recognized that it was taken in Glenorchy a beautiful southern town in New Zealand.
After a short convo thru comment section of Sam’s blog, I no longer expected anything. But surprisingly, when I tried checking out his latest blog post (I follow him by the way), this is what I saw.
OMG! I uttered the biggest O.M.G. when I saw it! I was so happy, I wanted to fly to Sam’s hometown and give him a kiss!
This is one big awesome surprise! You just don’t know how glad I am when I saw it. God may not grant me the talent Sam has but I know He was laughing out loud when He saw my jaw dropped, the moment I saw Sam’s super awesome drawing. Thank you Sam from the bottom of my heart!
