27th December 2022 Ann Su and Beena
Hello everyone, as the year is coming to a close, I thought of writing about this painting done by Ann Su. This painting is in watercolour, and she used a white pen for the highlights. I loved the way one of the flowers on the mask gives a 3D effect😉😉😉. I found this painting of the girl with a mask a curious topic to muse about🤔🤔🤔🤔.
Since 2020, we have all been wearing various types of masks. We went through significant discomfort; I had an allergy over my face, my glasses were constantly fogging, and my face was sweaty under the mask😒😒. Then it occurred to me that we have been wearing a mask all our lives😎😎. Just pause and reflect; we constantly wear an invisible ‘mask’. We remove the ‘mask’ only with people we are comfortable with😉😉😉😉. We may wear a half ‘mask’ with some and a whole ‘mask’ with many😂😂😂. When I realised the similarity between the masks, it was the same, wearing masks is demanding, physical or invisible 😤😤. So to stay safe, avoid people or situations where you must wear a full mask😂😉. We can be ourselves and avoid many conflicts by being in a comfortable zone. I think people who always wear masks are challenging to understand 🤨🤨. I find them exhausting🙄🙄. It is like when we see someone in a grocery shop, and they ask you, ” you don’t recognise me?” Once when they remove their mask, you know the person🤦🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️.
Wow, that was too philosophical even for me😅😅😅. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoyed the painting as much as I did. Till the next musing, stay safe in your comfort zone😎😎.
