My first artist #starstruck was with Monet, just like a teenager rock #fangirl I collect every Monet merchandise I could get my hands. Now my collecting era is way behind me, yet my adoration to his colour palette and perception of nature stays.
“For me, a landscape does not exist in its own right, since its appearance changes at every moment; but the surrounding atmosphere brings it to life – the light and the air which vary continually. For me, it is only the surrounding atmosphere which gives subjects their true value.” – Claude Monet

If you live in the countryside or seaside, you’ll have nature to surround you, it’s calming… relaxing, open spaces give you sense of freedom.
Living in the city on the other hand gives you adrenaline from the constant movements with sounds and noises galore. The hustle and bustle life in the city might give you stress but never boredom.
… but the suburb…I don’t know if it is the lack of excitements around or the wall after wall of concrete block houses… no matter how hard I try to find beauty in the suburbia, I still feel like slowly being suffocated. My only remedy is to travel anytime I can and only then I can recharged my insanity.
“That’s the trouble with the suburbs: it’s not a city, so you’re not anonymous, and it’s not a small town, so that people really care about you, but everybody kind of knows each other’s business, so you’re very judged.” ~ Anne-Marie Duff
