La Couleur Du Jazz |Montreal Fine Art Museum|Museum Trip

Montreal Fine Art Museum


As my brother came to Montreal to visit me as well as travel around Montreal with me, I drew him all the way to the museum. Because! In my very personal opinion, the best way to taste all vibes in a city is by far going to its own museum. I think Montreal Fine Art Museum is one of the most representable place in Montreal. There are two reasons,

1. They have lots of Canadian artists` works. Especially you can see so many Montrealer artists` pictures through out this exhibition -Colors of Jazz.

2. Feel a very modern Canadian architecture and very classical architecture at the same time. They have two main buildings. One is the new one and the other is the old. I love the old one so much!! I think I adore all classic things all over the world.

Colors Of Jazz.

I had passed by the museum so many times and saw the sign, Colors Of Jazz. I was wondering what does truly "the color of the jazz" mean. This exhibition actually started from 24th of October 2015 and it is lasting until the end of January (31, Jan, 2016). 
  
*You can check the schedules of the museum by here. (if you can`t click "here", https://www.mbam.qc.ca/en/exhibitions/on-view/the-beaver-hall-group/)

-

There were 4 little subjects in the exhibition - Portraits of Women, The Modern City, Jazz Wall, and The Nude.

-

I thoroughly enjoyed all sections but remarkably, the room for the section called Jazz Wall was amazing! Not only because of the pictures there were, but also because of the jazzy musics they played in the room!  - I have a video uploaded right below!

Overall the pictures, every works were painted by Oil. Which I have been eager to try into my pieces. I was indeed focusing on merely painting touches, brush strokes and other things related more into painting skills that every pictures have, not the flow of the exhibition. Because I do paint on my own and oil painting is very similar to painting using acrylic. So, for my practice, I needed to see those things, honestly. For that reason, I took a picture of a painting to practice by myself,



I am always struggling with drawing and painting a human so, in this time, I will practice it very hard and go forward, starting one step, two steps and more till reaching to my goal!

In a collection. (not at the exhibition!)

My First Film Photograpy #Leica #Mini-Zoom

Sunday, December 13, 2015
















I really wanted to buy a film camera but I couldn`t afford for a very vintage but fancy film camera. Then I found this one on ebay. Normally leica`s cameras are really expensive. However, this one was not. Although it was cheap and probably do not have super delicate mechanisms(?) inside, It was very affordable, additionally I am not a professional photographer, so I thought it`d be good for my amateurish photography.

Cuddle is one of my favorite things to do. Obviously with someone I love, by the way. It always makes me and him to be connected in the warmest and the sweetest way ever. At least, at the moment we have cuddle, I feel like I get beloved.

Lately I have started to paint.

Painting My Mind 


I always had been keening to paint someday, but I was not confident enough. I assumed that I would not be a good painter and unfortunately, I am actually not good at something requires little details such as sewing, origami, and obviously drawing. I was just nervous to draw some things and paint them. Because I am definitely not a delicate painter. However, one day, I came up with that "so what? who judges me? there are such different types of paintings so I would probably make another genre as I am." So, I`ve encouraged myself and started to draw what I got in my head and paint them! I know some people who really know about "ART" very well would laugh at my paintings. I don`t care. It just me who paints it. All paintings were painted by me and my ideas and those are also for myself. I am practicing my painting skills now. Which means, I could grow up as a great artist, hopefully though. Everyone can paint, but only ones who keep practicing and developing on themselves could be artists. X Serene

[Good Movies] The Beauty Inside #koreanfilm

Monday, November 30, 2015



I just watched this movie till a few mins ago. And I still can`t stop shedding my tear.

-Because,


Even though it is just a sort of fantasy, it drew me into the story deeply.
I was actually thinking about his feelings considering his situation - he can not have same appearances everyday. It might be okay if he had no one to care. However, as this film about, he met a girl. He loves her a lot. Apparently he was getting used to the fact that he`s changed everyday he wakes up. Starting to love her, he hated to be changed.

He was not the only one who actually gets hurt.

She is also the one who`s really suffering over him.
She always tries to get used to his faces everyday with him.
But, one day was not enough.

The line I`ve got really touched by was, "I remember what we ate, where we went to and what we did together, but I can`t remember his face." she said.


-Destiny.



We all have weakness, disease, fault, disadvantage, complex and so on. Somehow when we have someone to love, they sometimes make our love to be distant, hard, and tough. If someone left you because of your imperfect aspect, don`t be sad. It`s not because he/she was not a good person, it just, he/she was not for you. He/she would not have any ability to cover and embrace your weakness. You have lots of chances to meet the right person who has the right key of your life.


-Have I ever been the person I talked about above?



No. After I watched the film, I threw a question in my mind. "Can I ever be that girl in the film?" I would say, "No". As I`ve never met a guy who would surely stay with me, care and love me, I guess I`ve never been that kind of girl to a guy either. I want to do once in my life though. Well.



Plus!

-The Beauty Inside, 



Frankly, our appearance, especially the face, affects to a lot of things. We actually talk about someone`s first impression with the face (of course with someone`s manners, the way he/she says, etc.) Even if you deny that you don`t judge people with their appearance, you actually do in any ways. It is not possible to not judge someone 100%. But, never treat them with your judgement! Make a room for any possibilities! Back to the point, this film is showing us a "True Love" - I can love you whoever you are. Kind of? Well, it is hard to find what true love is but anyhow we usually say loving someone without any conditions is a "True Love". So, I`m just saying like this. 
The beauty inside; 
I think our love usually go to the inside as time goes by. If we could visualize our love in a model, at the first time we just stay and play on the surface. Let`s liken it to a chocolate. You are just melting the chocolate in your mouth. It`s hard and solid. You and the chocolate never mingle together. However, the more you get in touch with it, the more you get into the inside and taste more sweet points. It gets smooth,soft,warm, and part of yours! Hope you understand what I am talking about. I`m so bad at explaining something. :(




Lukewarm Is No Good - Roald Dahl

Tuesday, November 24, 2015



I stumbled into this quote from Roald Dahl on Instagram a few months ago. It helped me a lot and also encouraged me. Today I saw this quote written down on my sketchbook while I was listening to the music called Satelite by Jin-woo Jung. I just thought that this quote and the song might match together well and it ended up with great harmony. I really didn`t know what kind of videos to put on with these. As the quote says, I`ve decided to put some clips which I could show you what I passionate about. Some of clips were taken by a year ago, some of them were from yesterday. Hope you guys enjoy this short video. Most of all, hope this video would inspire you guys to start something or keep your passion on something! Thank you!

Birthday Is Always Miracle. #16NOV15

Thursday, November 19, 2015

Every 16th of November is always my favorite date.

-

1116 is the most special number in my life,
11:16 AM/PM is the most luckiest time in my day.

-






Since I`ve lived in Montreal now, I really did not expect to have lots of birthday wishes from my friends. However, luckily or not, we have Facebook which offers the best alarming service of friends` birthday. This notifications make us to be on force to write something down for their birthdays. Anyway, thanks to the service form Facebook, so many friends left some words to me. So, I woke up with so many birthday wishes from my friends on Facebook. In fact, because of the different time zone in Korea, I`d got the messages from the day before my birthday. Which made me freaking excited to have a real birthday. On my birthday, I had a lunch with my friends I met in Montreal and also had a dinner with other friends. After dinner, I went to my friend`s house to have a birthday song! It was really an amazing day! 

   










Pray for Paris, Pray for Seoul!

Sunday, November 15, 2015


I don`t really prefer to reveal my political bias or my thoughts on kind of big issues happened in my country to others. Because I don`t have that much knowledge about them to discuss with others. I do not want to make myself to be seen ignorant to say any unsubstantial things. However, at this time, I need to talk about it.


We all have got some shocked to be told about the Paris Terror Attack. Meanwhile in Korea, we had a big protest in Seoul against the government. (http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2015/11/anti-government-protesters-clash-police-korea-151114085804263.html) In fact, this protest was caused by South Korea`s Textbook Controversy. Guen-hye Park, first female president of South Korea, is trying to change the history textbook with her view. She was actually not a good candidate to become a president. (Someone says she rigged the ballots.) She is actually a daughter of Jung-hee Park who was a military dictator in 1960` to 1970` in South Korea. He was a DICTATOR. According to the things I learnt at my middle and high schools, if you said "I don`t like him" at that time, you`d be disappeared and be found dead. HE MADE THE MODERN SOUTH KOREA LIKE TODAY? Yes he did with so many victims. Why we are still disputing about Dok-do island with Japan? Because he did conclude a secret treaty with Japan. I could not believe that she even came out in the public and tried to became a president. She has never kept the election pledges she promised. And now? she`s trying to change the history textbook. She probably wants to make his father as a hero. Why don`t you be accepting the facts your father did and just do what the public really needs? If I were you, I would never do like you. You are actually acting like a child. A child who never likes advises or criticism and likes only compliments. I don`t know what your purpose being the president is, please stop making us embarrassing.




When You`ve Just Got A Haircut. #selfie

Wednesday, November 11, 2015



Selfie?

When we change our hair, we tend to take a selfie. (In fact, I usually take hundreds.) Am I right? If you`re not a selfie-person, then you should do that! Sometimes, I just see my old selfies that I organized into my computer before, and it feels awkward to see my old faces but also kind of touching....(?) I am a very emotional and sentimental person. So I get easily impressed and I shed tears with any of old memories. Anyway taking and collecting selfies help me to recall the moments where I was. Plus, you can see the process of your face`s change. Chronicle your face!   






 I like the way the stylist connect my side fringe with other! 


I want to do balayage as well!

I`ve got this haircut at local salon called ' Traffic Coiffure'.

They offer very affordable prices!

Boredom

Friday, October 30, 2015



Actually I`ve really wanted to put some narration or some video that I talk about Boredom. In fact I recorded my voice and attempted to take some video of me. Nevertheless, it ended up not to put any kind of those. Because I`ve reckoned this video goes way better with this background music only.

- About this video, 
The scenes are presenting things what I do when I get bored of something such as studying, workout, or some rules I made to do everyday. Apparently I get bored easily. Well, my mom always says that to me. But I`m actually not mom! Anyway when it comes to Work, Study, Workout or whatever it is, I end up getting bored at some point. However I obviously know that I should be patient and have to have tenacity and have to show my tenacity to myself. Because everyone gets some boredom for any reasons. But only ones that got over their boredom could be the ones they wanted to be. So, I always try to refresh my mind and my brain as well and I try to stick with the things I`ve been doing. I have some break. But no give up. (I`ll keep these words!)

See you very soon again on YouTube!

Tuesday, October 20, 2015


Hello there,
I haven`t kept my new year wish/goal, specifically "Keeping on making youtube videos". I even deleted my old videos (well there were only 4 vids tho). Because they were really cringing me and I was a bit embarrassed that I made those vids. However, lately I realized that those were not embarrassing things and I should`ve been doing those things till now. Reflecting on myself, I`ve just decided to make the youtube videos again. I am very sure that it`d be my great stepping stone to reach my dream which is being a part of fashion and art industry. Therefore, I promise to myself that I`ll do my best on this. 
Sincerely,
Serene X

Toronto Island

Wednesday, October 14, 2015

















It was my first day in Toronto. It was a really tired day (I am still tired honestly) because I got into Toronto at 7a.m. and I didn`t sleep well in the bus. Although, my friend and I headed to the island because it was the last day to open.( not sure indeed) Anyway going to Toronto Island was the best decision I`ve ever made. Toronto Island was so amazing. Every view in the  island was breathtaking and very beautiful. Actually the sunshine was gorgeous. Thanks to the sunshine, most of pictures I took were really nice. I might go to the island again, next time visiting Toronto.

Ciao x
