Sembrono “Butter Finger”


Pada saat mengunjungi sebuah pameran lukisan, aku mendapatkan sebuah ilmu baru dari seorang seniman. Sembari memandangi sebuah lukisan dia berkata bahwasannya lukisan itu dihasilkan oleh pelukis yang suka kerapian. Sebelumnya aku tidak tahu bahwa bapak itu adalah seorang pelukis. Pernyataannya membawaku berkenalan dengannya dan bercakap – cakap tentang seni lukis. Goresan per goresan menunjukan bahwa sang pelukis dengan telaten membersihkan kuasnya. Tampak dari warna – warna yang ada ungkap seniman itu kepadaku.

When visiting a paintings exhibition, I get a new habit of an artist. While looking at one painting he said that this painting was produced by a painter who likes neatness. Previously I did not know that he was a painting artist. His statement brought me acquainted with him and made a conversation about painting art. Scratches per scratches have shown that the painter was painstaking with a cleaning brush. Shown by its colors  said him to me.

Sesampai dirumah aku mendapatkan kamarku berantakan penuh dengan dvd dan buku – buku berserakan. Ingat akan kejadian di pameran tadi menggerakan tubuhku untuk merapihkan barang – barang dikamarku. Aku menemukan sebuah piala usang sebuah penghargaan waktu dulu aku pernah memenangkan lomba baca puisi putra. Aku mengambil sebuah lap dan air untuk membersihkannya dari debu. Debu – debu itu membuatku sesekali bersin-bersin. Aku mengelapnya dengan hati – hati hingga mengkilap. Aku pun tertegun melihat kamarku rapi dan piala ini bercahaya. Aku seperti melihat lukisan di pameran tadi.

Arriving home I got my room messy full of scattered DVD and books. Remembered to the experience at the painting show was moving my body to trim the goods and cleaning my room. I found an obsolete trophy as an award for me that ever won a poetry reading contest. I took a cloth and water to clean it from dust. Dust ​​occasionally make me sneezing. I wiped it carefully until shiny. I was stunned to see my room neat and this luminous trophy. Just like looking the paintings in the last exhibition.

Ketika ku lihat sinar lampu dikamarku, aku silau olehnya. Seperti itulah tatkala aku selesai membersihkan dan merawat barang – barangku yang usang berdebu menjadi bercahaya dan tidak percaya bahwa aku telah membersihkannya dari debu. Orang yang telaten akan memiliki barang – barang yang berumur panjang. Waktu sudah hampir malam aku pun bergegas untuk menuju ke tempat tidurku. Namun astaga, tanpa kusengaja kusenggol piala itu sehingga terjatuh terbanting di lantai. Piala itu pecah berhamburan. Seperti sebuah lampu yang tiba – tiba padam, aku menyesal telah merusaknya. Aku orang yang sembrono.

When I saw the lights of my room, I was dazzled by it. That was when I finished cleaning and taking care of my stuff that is outdated dusty become luminous and can not believe that I cleaned it from dust. People who are patient will have their long lived goods. Time was almost evening I was rushed to get to my bed. But Oh My gosh, inadvertently I was nudging the neat trophy felt down on the floor. It broke apart. As a lamp that arrived out suddenly, I’m sorry to ruin it. I’m a butter finger.

Keesokan harinya, aku menjumpai bapak tua seorang seniman yang aku temui di pameran kemaren sedang melukis di gallerynya. Aku pun mendekatinya dan duduk disampingnya. Kulihat dia memakai baju putih dan sesekali dia mengusap peluh didahinya. Lukisannya cukup indah, kulihat alat – alatnya tersusun rapih sehingga mudah untuk digunakan. Kami pun bercakap -cakap dan mulai saling mengenal bahkan aku meminta untuk dibuatan lukisan wajahku. Pada saat berdiri dia menyenggol tinta yang ada disampingnya dan sontak dia terkejut dan memegang tinta itu agar tidak mengenai lukisannya. Dia berkata “syukur aku tidak merusak lukisanku”, meski bajunya berlumuran tinta. “Aku sering begini pada saat aku grogi” kata bapak tua. Ternyata dia seorang yang sembrono juga, akan tetapi lukisannya setelah dipajang menunjukan dia tidak sembrono. Semua orang pernah berprilaku sembrono, akan tetapi orang lain tidak mengetahuinya. Ini ilmu yang aku dapatkan.

The next day, I met the old man an artist who I met in the last day at the exhibition painting at his gallery workshop. I was approached and sat beside him. I saw he was wearing a white shirt and occasionally he rubbed his forehead sweat. His paintings are quite beautiful, I saw the tools arranged neatly so easy to use. We also made a conversation and begin to know each other even I asked for my face painting by him. By the time he stood Oh My gosh, inadvertently he was nudging the ink boxes and suddenly he was surprised too and holding it to avoid it splashing on his paintings. He said “thanks I do not ruin my painting“, although his shirt was covered by ink. often be a butter finger man when I’m nervous” said the old man. I thought he’s a reckless too, but his saved paintings when displayed will indicate that he was not reckless. Everyone ever to behave recklessly, but unknown by others. It was the experience that I got.
