Time takes its own leisurely pace in the lovely little town of Luang Prabang. Days go by languidly here, like the flow of the river Mekong. It is the kind of place where people take long, indulgent strides, as they go about their meandering courses.
A certain sense of calm pervades the atmosphere, somehow inviting deep introspection. Usually, thoughts lead to meaningful realizations – or more questions. Either somehow lead to a better understanding of oneself. For most, the process urges one towards creative pursuits. It is not surprising, then, that Luang Prabang is setting the perfect stage for artistic minds to run wild.
Join us, as we discover Luang Prabang through the eyes and works of hand of a sketch artist who is as fond of this lovely little town as we are.
For Felicia, sketching is an act of contemplation.
“I found that life is just like a sketching process. Sometimes, I pull a wrong line,
but I couldn’t wipe or erase it. I have to make the best out of it, for it to be a
beautiful memory in my sketches, instead. In many cases, I have to leave the
wrong line as it is, and learn for the best without trying to fix it.”
In daily life, making mistakes is not the least bit desirable whatever the situation, even when mishaps are oftentimes inevitable. Felicia Boma’s artistic journey can be likened to that of a path towards self-acceptance – the kind that comes forth only from knowing oneself.
