Oak Park, IL
Even though I don’t make enough time for it - Art is something in my life that brings me a sense of perspective, calm and happiness every time I paint. It’s interesting to me how looking at other people’s simple creations brings me the same sense of peace.
Evanston, Illinois. I took this photo in January 2012, in the middle of a cold, but sunny day. There was a guy that rode his bike out to the pier and was just relaxing there. Not minding the cold, and enjoying the calmness that he was surrounded by.

Storming in the sunset on Flickr.
Docked on a cruise ship in the Caribbean, it was the first time I had seen it rain off in the distance while staying dry. Seeing this made me think more and more than rain is magic, How does it just spill out like that over there and not on top of me? And how is the sun still out if its raining?

I was admitted into the ER during my trip to Spain. After a long and stressful day, I was able to finally check myself out of the hospital, only to find this beautiful scene greet me as I stepped outside of the hospital. Suddenly, everything seemed okay again.

I was on a random trip to Indonesia with many Malaysian friends where we feasted on the fresh seafood and then made ramen noodles in coffee pots. I took this picture on our way off the island and reflected back about how much fun it is to do things in a completely random fashion in a way that goes against what society tells says you should be doing.
