JackieC 3 / 1 Dec 29, 2009 #1Are my ideas clear? What do you think?Please help! I dont mind if you're brutally honest =)In the space provided below, please elaborate on one of your activities (extracurricular, personal activities, or work experience)When I was young, I always watched my mother oil-paint. All the colors on the canvas hypnotized me: I had to try it. Swirling the different colors on the palette and applying it to the canvas, I found myself freely expressing my emotions. Since then, oil-painting not only became my passion; it became my therapeutic elixir. Just like the people who write in their diaries, I record my life on an oil-painted masterpieceïfilling it thickly with rich colors and feelings. Dark slabs when I'm sad; bright strokes when I'm happy. Although the color strikes in dissension initially, it slowly harmonizes after layers of paint. Through the years, I've noticed how closely related oil-painting is to the real world. The canvas is the world; the colors, the discordance in life. Just like how I blend the colors on my canvas, I hope I'll be able to harmonize the society someday.
