Artist Comment

If could ask God one question this morning, I would ask Him why things just seem to happen and people just come in and out of your life. And as you begin to realize the meaning of your life, there are barely answers. Just more questions.
I watched A Walk to Remember yesterday night as I wished to reminisce it again, and it somewhat greatly inspired me in making this wall. I really love making romantic wallpapers as that is what I like to do. And watching a love story like that totally complements my mood and the more I was actually able to come up with something. I barely had any idea what or how I wanted this wall to look like. It reminded me of one of my past renditions using the same image. But that one barely said anything about love. And I wanted this wall to be so much different from the last time. I've always loved this scan because it reminded me of someone, and I simply thought it was perfect. though I wished I knew how to vector, then maybe I could have gotten rid of those unnecessary textures without overblurring it, but I don't. And I just decided that I would just play with the colors as its originally yellowish.

Anyway, I want to share this quote from A Walk to Remember.

Jamie: You don't know the first thing about being someone's friend.
Landon: I don't just want to be your friend.
Jamie: You don't know what you want.
Landon: Neither do you. Maybe you're just scared that someone might just want to be with you.
Jamie: And why would that scare me?
Landon: Because then you wouldn't be able to hide behind your books, your fricken telescope, or your faith. (pause) No, you know the real reason why you're scared? It's cause you wanna be with me too.

It's so funny how I used to be so content with my life simply making art and having achievements and stuff like that. Watching cable used to be a big deal too. And you'll never know when it would hit you until one day you'd just wake up wanting more from life. I've always been Christian most of my life but I never really had that much friends. And that statement proved that maybe sometimes we can be so afraid to leave our comfort zone, that maybe we're afraid we'd make a fool of ourselves to people. And I used to be content simply having online friends, yes its nice, but it never gave me the genuine human contact I have never known before, and now that I do, I'm so eagerly longing for it. And I've always had this friend whom I've been friends for a long time yet I never really payed as much attention as before. I've always found her unique. She's christian yet she seems to be popular with everybody around. And that somewhat stirred me a little. I never really like to socialize simply because I don't want to be influenced. But she, she seems to be able to handle it so well. And then she told me once that faith is meaningless if we'd never allow ourselves to share it with other people. And she was right all along. And I have closed myself to people for way too long.

I guess its a feeling called love. Not necessarily the mushy kind, nor is it a boyfriend-girlfriend thing. Just being a friend makes me happy already. And I realize that I have other friends too and that I was never alone to begin with. I'd sometimes wonder why is it that sometimes, the worst things would happen to me, only did I fail to realize that maybe there is someone out there who's probably experiencing something worse and that we are all just going through the same thing. And at the end of the day, you realize how important it is never to give up. You realize the real meaning of LOVE.
For those who probably want to know, I never got the chance to give my wall to my Norway friends. they're already in Oslo even a week ago and I never knew. One of my best friends left for Singapore, while another as I thought we'd see each other in college again might transfer elsewhere. Another would be leaving for Japan before Graduation, and as for my other friend, I personally don't know where she'd go. I've asked her out to the prom, but she told me to ask someone else out. But I can't... because I want her, and nobody else.

It funny because I've always thought love stories existed only in fantasies and movies. But I guess they do too in real life. Probably not as grand, but the feelings are genuine. the emotions are true. the love is unique. the friends, irreplacable. there's just so much that happened in the year 2005 I'd be wondering what else to expect. It feels as though everyone is starting to lead their own lives as well. And though I never really tell them how much I do love them, I do. And maybe one day, I'll have the courage to say that. Much like how I experimented with this wallpaper.
Fairy tales normally end a happy ending. But my life has been so much more than I thought it would be. All I know is I'm happy, and all I know is that it isn't the end yet.

Ninety Miles outside Chicago, Can't stop driving, I don't know why
So many questions, I need an answer, Two years later you're still on my mind
I bought a ticket to the end of the rainbow, I watched the stars crash in the sea,
If I could ask God just one question... Why aren't you here with me...tonight
Someday we'll know, If love can move a mountain...
Someday we'll know, Why the sky is blue...

Someday we'll know
Why I wasn't meant for you...

~~~
Ikaw Ang Lahat Sa Akin literally translates to "You Are Everything to Me"
I know this wall has some technical flaws but I hope you get something more than just that. thank you so much.
