Sip & Gogh: Making Snapped and Scribbled Paint


All my life I've been wondering if I have a bit of creative skill in my blood. When I was little, I used to pose for my grandmother. She has a small notebook filled with pencil sketches. I also have cousins who paint. I can draw. But I don't know if I can paint until yesterday. Merck Philippines hosted an event for the press and bloggers last August 5, 2015 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel to commemorate Fertility Awareness Month and we were treated to a craft therapy.

I was both excited and nervous. Most of the participants are first timers. But the artists from Sip and Gogh assured us that we'd be surprised with how our art work will turn out.

Challenge: The painting behind Aika.

The instructor guided us step by step.

The Doctors' Row

I was so happy with how the background of my painting turned out. Honestly, I want to stop at this point. I'm scared I'd mess it up if I go on.

I remembered being told, "Don't be hindered by fear." And I continued painting. The trunks and the branches looked good.

And then the fence...

Had I stopped at the background, I'll never know that I'm capable of painting a tree. And suddenly, I felt fulfilled.

Thank you so much Merck Serono and Sip & Gogh for the opportunity to write this off my bucket list.
