An artist cannot fail; it is a success to be one.

I would like to quote that for it partially states the purpose for this site.
Due to the fact that not everyone who is inclined to art can be full-time artists, and not everyone who can make art have enough time to spare to make a grand artwork, I made this site as a challenge to myself to dedicate 30 minutes of my day for art.
I am currently a preschool teacher and currently helping manage a preschool center. I also do art tutorials to kids on my spare weekends. Because of this, it looks like I can barely have enough time and motivation to put up with big art projects but my love for the art won’t make me give up on it. So, I guess, if it’s just 30 minutes, maybe it would work out just fine with my schedule.
Artistically speaking, I don’t have a formal training in arts. I was taught by my uncle – Luis J. Castro who is a realism painter, for three months when I was on sixth grade. And from then on, I do self study and read books about art to cultivate my skills. From time to time, I draw pictures as gifts or by request. So, on this site, I am challenging myself to learn more, improve and use art on a regular basis.
Feel free to comment or leave suggestion on each of my artwork and it will be greatly appreciated. 🙂
