Description: "Why do relationships end? After a breakup, a lot of people ask themselves this question. While every circumstance is unique, there are numerous reasons why relationships don't last. Basically, it is because of the wall—boundaries. "The wall" that destroys love and relationships is comprised of non-acceptance, a lack of trust, and a lack of respect. Inadequate communication, different priorities, and a lack of intimacy are among the many other factors. For a romance to endure, you must be dedicated and willing to put in the effort." - Pao

Description: "Texture is the foundation of art—brushstrokes, perspective, layers, gradients, light, shadow, highlights, and more. We encounter it in our daily lives, and it's a rule followed by art masters and students for generations. Texture is a fundamental part of the art world, known to experts and enthusiasts alike. Texture is in everything we see, touch, or feel, and it's a crucial aspect sought after by artists, galleries, and collectors. When I rediscovered my passion for art and started my artistic journey, I had to decide whether to use texture in my creations. I chose to break the rule, aiming for a unique and meaningful presence. That's why my work remains intentionally devoid of texture." - Pao
