Clock on Porcelain

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!

Spring Has Come!

Hello there! How have you been so far?

I am sorry for the delay. I was busy with painting and doing my homework from my painting school. I am happy that I finally finished my bird painting! Yay!!

This is for my class in Alabama. I have heard the class has already filled, and I am so excited to see my people at Dixie’s painting studio! Thank you so much for everything, Dixie!!!

I painted some cherry blossoms, cherries and a bird. I picked up the bird from a western book, and the bird is not from Japan. However, I think it’s okay that we mix because we are not bird experts. We are painters, right? I think it’s so-called artistic license, heehe!

I hope my American painting friends can experience Japanese the spring while my they are painting. I will bring our spring to Alabama in a month! Our cherries are not like Americans. Ours are more orange-ish color and smaller.

Now, I started painting some mushrooms and pendant tops.  I hope you can see all the results before I go back to the States! I will try my best!

Have a lovely day/night!

See you in two weeks!

Dresden Plates

Hello there! How have you been so far?

I am sorry for the delay. I have been busy with my homework from my painting school and other things to do.  I still have to paint a lot. Even so, I am happy that my Dresden plates turned out very pretty. I painted these for my classes in Alabama.

I painted the same Dresden bouquets with different designs. I am very curious which one do you prefer?

I will teach these plates at Dixie’s painting studio in April. If you are interested in my class, please contact Dixie. I look forward to seeing you in my class.

Now, I have to paint at least three birds for orders, one plate for wedding and my homework from my painting school.  I hope I can update my blog in two weeks!

See you around here again in two week! Have a lovely week!!
