Be true to yourself 스스로에게 솔직해지세요

Be true to yourself 스스로에게 솔직해지세요

Haven’t I ever said ‘No’ the word I truly want to say sometimes. I became more confident with what I want to say since then. When someone asks me why I did something this way, I wish I could be true to myself and say “Because I wanted to” simply.

Hong Il Hwa’s Familiar portrait 홍일화의 익숙한 초상화

Hong Il Hwa’s Familiar portrait 홍일화의 익숙한 초상화

the colorful makeup on this painting is overwhelming. The makeup to me is using your face as canvas to paint on with cosmetics. The only difference is would you respect the basic bone structure of your canvas to paint or would you create something completely new as you ignore the bone structure of your canvas.
