Hello there! How have you been? I am sorry that I hadn’t posted anything for a while, but I came back here.

I think many people use a cell phone now rather than a PC, and they don’t read long blog entries anymore. Blogs are kind of the out of fashion now. So, I change my art blog to follow the movement.  I keep posting my hand-painting’s photos, but I don’t write long blog entries anymore on my art blog. So, it will be easier for people to check out my blog on their cell phones. To follow the movement, I started using Instagram as well. If you are interested in my Instagram, please follow me. https://www.instagram.com/yumiyumayume/

China Fair in Kyoto

Posted in Uncategorized on October 21, 2018 by yumi

The Spirit of Japan

Hello there! How have  you been so far? I think you forgot that I have blogs, lol. Yes, I myself almost forgot about them as well, lol. Well, I had lost interested in blogging for a while. Since I have left this blog for months, I have no idea what I should write. Then, I found that writing a china festival inKyoto might be interesting.

This summer was really hot, and I avoided going out. I rarely went out, and this festival was one of them. I don’t know why people in Kyoto hold the china (porcelain) festival in summer because summer in Kyoto is one of the muggiest places in Japan.

Anyway, the festival is held every summer, and many people have visited there because it opens from the morning to evening. I suggest to go there in the evening because it’s much cooler. You will be very comfy.

Clock on Porcelain

Posted in European Style, flower painting, Miniatures, Nyon Rose, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on August 20, 2018 by yumi

Hello there! How have you been so far? I am sorry that my blog post has been delay because last week we had Obon. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bon_Festival My family and I had been busy for family reunion things.  Here, it’s getting cooler after the obon, and I finally started enjoying painting, knitting, exercising and so on. Since I have been sized down, I am looking forward to going shopping to find cute outfits for fall and winter!

Today, I want to show you my clock on porcelain. I designed and painted it. This was one of my painting school’s projects. After finishing this one, I finally could go to my last course for my painting school. I am designing on a tea set with tiny flowers now. You will see it some time.

Since I painted tiny Nyon roses for the first time for a while, I had to practice a lot to make my painting teacher say that you can fire it.

When I designed this clock, my teacher and I had lots of arguments about my designs. We still can’t agree with some parts, but I hope I can graduate the school as soon as possible.

Now, I am practicing some portraits and animal portraits, and I am creating a piece for the city art show. I need to design one more piece for the show.

Well, I want to go back to my practice piece. So, happy painting, everyone! Hopefully, we can meet here again in two weeks!

After Two of Natural Disasters……

Posted in American Syle, Portrait, Uncategorized with tags , , on July 21, 2018 by yumi

Hello there! How have you been so far?

I am very sorry for the delay. We had some tough times and had to go through. We had two natural disasters. One is an earthquake and the other one was rain and floods.

First, the earthquake broke lots of my porcelain. I become down for a while and couldn’t paint.

It broke my heart as well because I lost lots of my collections including my Italian teacher’s hand painted piece. Then, we had crazy rain. It caused lots of floods everywhere and more than 230 people were killed because of floods and land slides, and still around 10 people are missing. Now, we are crazy heats every day. The temperature is around 40 degree Celsius ( 104 degree  Fahrenheit), and many people are having heat attack every day.  Summer in Japan is very humid (It’s always around 70% of humidity). So, you can guess how much we are miserable. We are very worried about produces.

Even so, you know life is going on and we have to pass through and move on, right?

I finally started painting again. Before the earthquake hit us, I was painting three portraits. I finally can show one of them. Actually, the funny kid’s face encouraged me to keep painting. I hope you like it.

I am practicing portraits, and you will see more portrait pieces from now on.

Have a lovely weekend and see you around here again soon!

JPAC Convention

Posted in International Convention, Uncategorized with tags on June 4, 2018 by yumi

Hello there! How have you been so far? It’s been a while since I posted my last entry.

This blog entry is written both in Japanese and English. However, I don’t translate Japanese into English, visa versa.  I write whatever I want in the languages.

JPACの皆様、作品展おめでとうございました。お友達3人でお邪魔させていただき素晴らしい作品の数々を拝見できましたこと、また、JPACのメンバーでポーセレンを通じて交流させていただいておりますたくさんのお友達にお目にかかりお話しさせてただけましたこと、とても幸せに存じます。わずかばかりではありますが、写真を撮らせてただける機会がありましたので、ここに掲載させていただきます。2年後に今後は東京で開催されますとのこと、ますますのご発展をお祈り申し上げます。

I went to the JPAC convention with two of my friends after I returned from the States. It was in Kyoto a couple of weeks ago. The JPAC is one of the Japanese porcelain painting groups name. I don’t belong to the group.

I saw amazing art pieces and met lots of my Japanese painting friends there. All pieces gave me influence and motivated me a lot.

Since I got some chances to take some photos ( I was not allowed to take each pieces’ photos.), I would love to show them.

The art show was there. The building was built 400 years ago. I think it’s really cool to have an art show in such an old building!

Blue Bird

Posted in Animal painting, birds, The Michigan Shcool, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on April 16, 2018 by yumi

Hello there!

How have you been so far? Before me going back to the States, I want to update my art blog again! I am very happy with my recent bird painting, and I wanted to show it soon to you! I believe in that blue birds bring happiness to us. So, my painted blue bird brings happiness to all people who follow my art blog!!

This is an order piece from one of my portrait painting teachers from the States, Jerri Cookie Barton. When I met her last time at Gay’s school, I showed her my humming bird  and the other bird that I painted to Dixie. She really loved them, especially, the Dixie bird. She ordered my hand-painted bird from me. What’s the honor for me it is!!!! I was very excited!! I was willing to get the order from her and enjoyed painting it, to try to paint my best bird!

Then, here it is! I am so happy with the result! I hope Cookie will like it as well! I can’t wait to see her smile at Gay’s school.

Mushrooms

Posted in European Style, Fantasy, Uncategorized with tags , , on April 7, 2018 by yumi

Hello there! How have you been so far?

I am happy that I can update my art blog constantly!! I think I am getting better at managing my time to keep painting, learning conversational English and Italian, knitting, exercising and so on.  I started making studies in English as well. I will sell the studies in my classes, Alabama and Michigan first. I still have to learn how to sell online, but after I settle everything, I will start selling them online too.

Anyway, today I show you my mushroom plates. They are for my host moms, two for Alabama (Dixie and Elaine) and one for Michigan (Gay). I hope they all like them.

Somehow since I was a kid, I really really love mushrooms. So, I am happy that I painted them.  When I saw my hand painted mushrooms, they made me smile because they look so cute! Which one do you like the best? I definitely want to paint mushrooms for me again!!!

I love these cute mushrooms, lol

 

Now, I started painting two birds and some strawberries on different plates , and I have to paint some jewels as well. I am designing my last tea set for my painting school.  I have so many ideas that I want to paint. I hope I can paint all of them, lol.

I think this blog post will be the last entry before me going back to the States. I will be there for a month. So, I will see you again here after one month.

Thanks for taking a look at my blog post! Happy painting, everyone!
