My interest in painting began when I learned about Vincent Van Gogh, the famous Dutch painter who did not see the fruit of his success. I am really a big fan of him. It is not only his paintings that fascinate me but also his life story. For me, his life is an example of an intelligent man whose mind is difficult to read. Below is my work that I patterned from Van Gogh's painting of a chapel in Nuenen in the Netherlands. (I noticed a strand of hair from the painting, it could be mine which fell when I did this photo).
This is an early morning scene from Taal lake in Batangas province in the Philippines. What is really amazing is that a volcano is standing within the lake, which is considered as the smallest active volcano perhaps in the world. Many tourists visited the place to enjoy the sceneries there and have some swim in the lake.

This is a small country road outside the gate of my relative's house in the middle of their farm in France. I have painted this probably 4 months ago to learn how to paint trees. Not happy with the outcome, I thought not to post this painting here. But someone wanted to see it, so who am I not to grant her request. I intend to make a new version of this later.
