Bird Painting with Fat Oil

Posted in birds, Dresden, European Style, Meissen Style, Miniatures with tags , , , , , on July 14, 2015 by yumi

Hi there! How are you doing today?

Here in Japan, every day is too muggy and without air conditioners it’s hard for us to live. I have been complaining a lot against this weather. Ah, I really really hate Japanese summer.

Well, have you been painting? I am busy for my assignments for my school, but I want to paint different subjects from my school. I just started thinking what I want to paint. You will see what I paint on my blog later.

Today, I want to show you my bird painting. This bird’s design is from the Meissen factory, and this is one of my assignments for my school.

This is one fire.  I painted the bird with fat oil.

Thank you as always for your support! See you next week on my blog again!

Hi there!

I am sorry for a bit delay. Since two weeks ago, I have been sick. I have had a really bad cold, and between my husband and me, we are passing it around to each other for awhile.
Now, I am feeling better.

Today I want to show you my tulip vase.

This is an assignment for my painting school. I designed the tulips with a modern design on the vase. My teacher didn’t like it, but I love it, lol.

Now, I am painting an Imari piece with the Japanese style and my other assignment for my school. You will see them soon!

Have a lovely weekend, everyone!

See you next week on my blog!

What I learned in Michigan Porcelain Painting School ~Part 2

Posted in American Syle, flower painting, Modern Style, The Michigan Shcool with tags , , , , on June 12, 2015 by yumi

Hello there! How are you doing?

It’s getting hotter in Japan, and my hate season is coming. We are in a rainy season now.

Well, today I want to share my modern piece with you. I learned how to design modern patterns last month by Paula White in Michigan school. The class was very interesting. She showed several samples how to design modern patterns, and we ourselves designed our original design with Paula’s help.

I prefer traditional patterns and I am lack of experiences. However, since Paula was a excellent teacher, I really enjoyed designing my piece.

I hope you all like my modern piece.

Roses!

Posted in Dresden, European Style, flower painting with tags , , , on June 4, 2015 by yumi

Hi there!

I am so glad that I am here again this time!!! How are you doing, everyone?

I’m enjoying early summer season in Japan while painting, gardening, reading, or sometimes playing with my kitty, Jiji.

Today I want to show my rose painting. A couple of months ago, I returned to my previous porcelain painting school in Japan to graduate from there. I want to get a diploma and start teaching at my painting studio.

This plate is one of subjects in my school. We receive subjects, in this case, roses, and create a design with roses. I added several different flowers and butterflies. This is only one fire. I hope you like it.

What I learned at the Michigan school since Last year ~Painting with Stephen Hayes

Posted in American Syle, flower painting, Modern Style, The GA Seminar by the Sea Porcelain Art School with tags , , on May 31, 2015 by yumi

Hi there! Long time no see. Aw, I hate that I have to start saying “Long time no see”……… I am sorry that I hadn’t updated my blog entry at all for a while.

I was feeling down after I returned to Japan from America. I felt like that I burned out. You know, everyone feels the feelings after they achieve their goals.

I had been so busy in three months. In February, I was in Florida to take San Do’s class with Gay and Linda. In March, I was in Thailand to enter the world porcelain convention with my Kutani teacher. After that, my British friend, Martyn came to our house. Then, I was in Michigan. I traveled three times in three months. I completely tired.

I know it sounds excuses, but that’s why I hadn’t showed up Facebook, Twitter, my blogs or whatever.

Now, I am full of energy and want to post blog entries constantly both on my blogs! I will show up Facebook, Twitter much more often, I promise!!!!!

Today I want to write about my American painting teacher, Stephen Hayes. He is a world famous painter and one of the best teachers. I’ve been taking his class constantly at Gay’s painting school, the Michigan painting school for two years. He is a great teacher, and I love taking his classes. That’s because I can learn new techniques and how teachers should be at the same time from him.

He is an impressionist artist and it’s really new attempt for me to learn abstract art. I am too precise. I don’t know if it’s good or not, though…….

Last year, I painted two pieces; one was with Stephen and the other was my own.

Inpressionist art

Impressionist art

I painted this one with Stephen and after school, I gave it to Gay, my American mom. She has been hanging this on a wall of her bathroom. So, it was my first time to see my hand painting in a year this year, lol. I think when we frame paintings, they seem to be really gorgeous. I love Gay framed my painting very much! It seems to be very very nice!!

This round one was painted by myself!

Impressionist art

Impressionis art

Learning the painting style was fascinating for me! I was in loved with Stephen’s techniques!

This year, I painted two pieces as well; one is painting with him and the other is my own. I also gave the one which I painted with Stephen to Gay  again. Next year I will see which colored frame she used.

Since this style is so unique for me, I want to use this techniques to my art pieces from now on!  You will see my new attempts more soon!

I can’t translate every details into Japanese because I also take some painting classes. However, I can help your English! 一緒に是非、ミシガンでペイントいたしましょう!

TIPP convention in 2015

Posted in American Syle, Animal painting, Awards, birds, competition with tags , , , on April 12, 2015 by yumi

Hi there! I am very sorry that my blog post was so delay.

Last month I attended the international Thai porcelain convention. It was my second time to attend it.

This time I attended as an interpreter for my Japanese painting teacher even though my English is not good enough.

After the convention, my teacher, his wife and my respectable Japanese painting friend, Keiko Shimizu enjoyed sightseeing with a Thai painter. I will write about it later. In this entry, I want to focus on a competition.

I attended two pieces to the competition, and one of them got a silver prize!

Last time, I got a honorable mention, and this time I got a silver prize. I was so lucky!  I got the certification from a Councillor of the king of Thailand. I was so honored it. I also attended a Gala dinner with a Princess of Thailand.

I want to write about the convention more, but I don’t have much time. I will write about the sequel after I return back to Japan from America.

I will go back to the States today and will stay there for a month.  See you next month on my blog again!
