The vegetable seller...

 'The vegetable seller'
by Vincent

This painting was one of Vincent's work that sent to me by email ...   I just choose this one   without any consideration... I just prefer this one....
I wanna share it here since two days ago, 30th November was Vincent's 18th birthday... 
Happy birthday to my son!

Truthfully  I really missed him as he lived far away from me...
3 months seemed so  long  since he left us  for college at Jogjakarta... especially in his birthday  I felt so sad... and can't stopped thinking about him...  coupled when he called me right on  his birthday that he felt unwell and even went to the  doctor to get medicine... Ohh.. what so sad!! but Alhamdulillah  today he's getting better...
I believed (I hope I could)  my son could take care of himself... 

 My son, Vincent...

But I'm glad and can't wait  to see him... my son will be return home to Palembang on his school holidays around  the end of  this December...
Hope everything will run smoothly...

To all my dear friends...
May Allah always be blessed us !!

  11. Happy birthday to your son, Nensa. My son's 21st birthday is in 12 days, and I won't get to see him on that day either, so I know how you feel. He will get to come home about a week after that though.

    I love the painting your son did. It is wonderful! I think he is very talented with his art. :)

    Hugs to you!

  12. Hi Nensa, That art work by your son is INCREDIBLE. What a talented young man he is... He obviously is doing GREAT in college...

    Happy Birthday to him.

    I'm glad you could read my post. Welcome and pls come back anytime... xoxo

    thanks ye Ida... aku memang rindu berat sama anakku... beginilah rasanya Ida kalo hidup jauh dengan anak.. 3 bulan rasanya bagai 3 abad...huhu...sedihnya!!

  31. You'll enjoy it so much when you have your son home again! The next few weeks will zoom by :)

  32. Amazing talent! Vincen't style of painting reminds me of another painter, maybe from America in the 1920s. A busy and emotional time of year for you. So glad you get to have Vincent back from school soon. I'm sure he'll be happy to have a home cooked food!

  33. Aslmkm Nensa.
    Nice painting indeed!
    Happy belated birthday to Vincent.
    All the very best in ur son's homecoming.

  34. thank you for your sweet visit Nensa! Oh, i so understand you! It must be hard to have a loved chid being so far away! But then - one day he will be closer again, and this way he grows up - maybe ;) Sons! OMG - if i look into my sons rooms - dirty socks everywhere! But they are both so creative and fun! Lots of snow here and very cold! Brrrrrrr! Have a lovely weekend!

  35. @Amin:
    You're much welcome dear friend!

    Yes Jemi, I can't wait to face the day when my son home..

    Thanks for your delightful views, Leslie..
    This time perhaps Vincent didn't have his own style yet on his painting... but someday I'm sure he'll be improving and will get his own style on his art work...Insha Allah!

    Wassalam KakG, and thanks a million for all your wonderful words...I'm always happy reading your comment.

    You're welcome dear friend... but I still can't know how about Vincent's room now since I met him about 2 months ago... You got right... however he's doing fine and hope will be more creative day by day..
    thanks for your warm words, Martina... sending my big hug to you!

    @Ms. Anthropy:
    Hi dear friend... long time no see, I'm glad could hear from you again.. Thanks for your nice comment.

  36. My dear friend, I'm really impressed with this Vincent's painting. It's wonderful!. He painted many beautiful details of art in an only work is truly amazing. Your son has a huge talent, I've said on several occasions, but in such a short time he is making great strides and advances more and more each time in each new painting.

    Do not be sad dear friend, the distance, being away from loved ones involves some sacrifices, but you know that it is good and for the bright future that awaits Vincent.

    I really enjoyed seeing the paintings of Vincent, thanks for telling me to visit my blog so I'm very grateful. I still have not answered your kindness comment, have little time lately because of my work, but I am very happy to see you there.

    God bless you and your family
    Hugs and smiles!

  37. Hi Nensa!Thanks so much for the visit to my blog.Always nice to see a new face.Happy belated Birthday to your son.The picture is just lovely.

    Have a nice new week ahead!

  38. salam Nensa... kreatif sungguh ya si Vincent itu...mudah2an dia sehat di sana, happy bufday semoga dia sihat dan sentiasa dibawah lindungan Illahi hendaknya...
    pabila berjauhan..rindu pasti datang..adat kehidupan..bertemu dan berpisah..tapi berpisah hanya sementara..semoga pertemuan akan membibitkan kemesraaan...

  39. Mash Allah! Very beautiful post!

  40. @Carmen:

  59. if we compare with the previous painting, evident that developed in his paintings, we can see cak mano Vincent combines colors, very very impressive.and mantap

    would be difficult to distinguish between localll painting with nonlocal, thz's really an amazing painting.

    What a wonderful painting and a wonderful talent your son is. I'm sorry you've had to go through the adjustment of one of your "chickies" leaving the nest, but trust me, it will get better/easier. It especially hurts when they are far from us and sick. Hope he feels better soon.

    I've missed you dear lady and your always positive notes. :) I'll be posting more in 2011 and hope to see lots of you.
