MONTHLY NEWS LETTER - JANUARY '22

I'm going to introduce a little bit about myself on this page and update every month, so that I can connect with you better and hope that you feel my artworks closer.


This month, I'll write about my experience in holiday seasons and new year resolution.

First of all, happy new year everyone! How did you spent your time in holiday season? Happy? Miserable? Both sound normal to me.


I spent all event like thanksgiving, Christmas, and new year with my family ( my partner, and two dogs ).

Nothing special, but we bought sushi, lobster and nice steak on each event and those were delicious.


I wrote this on my Facebook page... when I was younger, I hated this festive holiday season when everyone else look happy and excited. I came to New York alone leaving my family in my country to study music and art in 2001. The first year was fine. Everything looked new and fresh to my eyes even I didn't know anyone here at the time. Started going to school and working a part time job, I'd already learned how people here enjoy holiday seasons. I had few friends but they spend their time with close friends and family, so never was invited for their party, and I never asked to join. My colleagues talked about how their party went, what gifts they got or gave for someone special after new year and many years I didn't have much to talk about. Also it's pretty cold in NY, that made my miserable feelings worse. I was living alone in such a small studio with broken windows back then. Around October, my fear was growing little by little.


I was living with my father and mother in my country and didn't experience living alone. That was a huge lesson for me how important my family and close friends are for my life. Probably I would not realize that if I stayed with them. Loneliness could even kill people's soul and we all are not so strong to live with it. After 10 years of loneliness and desperate feelings, I've finally found my family here to spend holiday seasons together happily. We've been together for 10 years now, and Cooper ( the second dog ) came to our lives last year.

What I wish for new year is just everyone's health. Simple but the most important element of life.


My new year resolution is just to work on my art works harder than ever and run every morning. My artist career hasn't reached to anywhere close where I want to accomplish. There are so much to learn, so much to work on. Jogging is never my thing..but I need to gain more stamina to work on especially large scaled canvas, so gotta do what I have to do.


Thank you for stopping by here. Wish you have a great new year.

I really appreciate your interest in my art works.


Sincerely,


Macoon Design





FAVORITE MUSIC



Radiohead / KID A (2000)

I love all their album and it's very hard to pick one for this section.

In Rainbows, Amnesiac, and Ok, computer. I tend to pick albums that I listen when I work on paintings. Those give me such an inspiration. Great music affects my work in a big way. Thom Yorke is a genius!






FAVORITE FILM




Paddleton (2019)

Directed by Alex Lehmann

Those guys are best friends, and one of them is dying because of cancer. Story's supported to be emotional, and it is somewhat emotional but what I like about this movie is to make this drama very subtle and it feels real. Quiet, Funny, and bitter. "Paddleton" is a made-up word that those guys share.







FAVORITE STUFF

Note; I just introduce my favorite stuff here, and pure my opinion.

I don't have any sponsors or anything and I get zero money for this.



SOREL - KINETIC Impact strap sneaker

I used to wear heels all the time and never wear sneakers.

When I'm getting older, my feet started screaming and I can't wear heels anymore.

I became picky on shoes because I need cushion in shoes even sneakers.

I fell in love with those sneaker at a glance, and the function is great.

Light wight, supportive soles, and design.

Plus, I don't have to tie shoe lace every time I wear those!



OK, That is it for this month.


Thank you for visiting my shop.

Thank you for your time to take a look at my art works.

Wish you all the best and health.



PEACE!
