Hi, there! How are you doing today? I’m really excited because I will study abroad in America again to take a painting class at the Michigan school.

Tomorrow I will leave Japan and enroll in my dear American friend, Gay’s school. So, this entry is the last entry before I go to America.

I probably won’t be able to update my blog entries for a month.

Today’s entry is a Nabeshima again!

I will bring this plate to the international Canadian porcelain show. You can see this in my booth! I’m thinking if someone want this, I’d love to sell it.

I will sell some my hand-painted miniatures as well.  I also have two presentations there. I’m not good at speaking in English in public, and it makes me very nervous. However, I really hope I can meet many people there. If you see me, please speak to me!

My Newest Dresden

Hi, friends! How are you doing?

I’m doing great and enjoy painting every day. I’m so happy because my last entry was so popular. Thank you so much for visiting my blog entry.

Thank you for leaving a lot of comments there. I really appreciate you, all.

Today’s entry is a Dresden. I painted it with the Alfredo’s techniques.  I painted it with two fires. Compared to one fire Dresden, this style is much easier. I’ve been involved in this style and practicing it a lot. I’d love to improve these techniques more.

Hi, friends! It has been warm days here, and our cherry trees started to bloom! My favorites season has come!!!! I’m so happy even though today is a rainy day. Today is a special day for me. Guess what? Haha, it’s my birthday!! I was born in April 11th! I’ll spend some time with my family. My husband will take me and our daughter to a fancy restaurant!

Today I’d love to show my camellia plate! I painted it with some quick dried medium, and of course, it’s one fire.  The Plate is from Japanese company, called Noritake.

My Portrait with a Dreden Style

Hi, there. Today is a sunny day in Japan. Since I had been sick, I haven’t updated my blog entries. I’m sorry.

I’m happy today because I finished several pieces. Until I go to America again, I’d love to update my blog entries as much as I can.

So, today’s entry is a portrait. I love painting classical portraits and painted her from a post card. Since I learned a new Dresden techniques from Alfredo Tlediano, when I designed this piece, I painted the Dresden part with the techniques. I like it because the colors on my piece matched to spring!
