Shamsuddin Abdul Rahman : Paints for Scrap.




Shamsuddin Paints For Scrap...so he tells me! He is one of us....day in and day out he paints to try and make a living....as you all go to work, where ever it is that you work, whatever it is that you do......to also earn a living. He has, in his own words..."not been so wise in decision making" .......how many of us have been wise in that...but he tells me that he has "Been painting fulltime since 13".....and that is a lot of years ....but who cares when you are doing something you like!


I got to know Din (yes I am calling hin "Din") through Vincent The sky Watcher..another one of us who watches the Sky and share with us, through his pictures, the work of God....and both Din and Vincent are doing what they want to do. Me? Two things I really want to do...write songs and paint...no can do either one..so I write instead! Such is life.    


Let me share with you my conversation with Din this afternoon...I started by telling DIn that, with his permission, I wanted to tell you guys about his work....his art work.....and for starters I changed...no, I should say I improved...my "steadyaku47" masthead with one of his painting ...hence the change. Hope you guys approve. 

 
Please do check out his FB page Shamasuddin Abdul Rahman  and do have a look at what he has there in terms of his work....and jangan lupa beli yang mana you suka so that ...in his words again... he "can concentrate on painting without having to worry bout marketing."....can any of you guys make that possible? Please....

    Note : And "YES" Shamsuddin has serious issues with his diabetes...so the less marketing he does the better! So please friends, go take a look at what he has on his FB page and let us do the marketing for him...can or not?
