Michigan Porcelain Artists Spring Painting Retreat in 2013
Long time no see! How have you been?
I returned to Japan a couple of days ago, and have been busy for settling up our new house! I still have a little bit jet lag, but I’m really fine!!! I still can’t believe that I had been in the U.S. and Mexico for one and a half months, but it’s very true. I had a great time there and write about my trip step by step in my blog.
First of all, I want to write about Gay’s school, Michigan Porcelain Artists Spring Painting Retreat. I left Japan a week after I moved to a new town. At the time I was completely exhausted , and couldn’t think anything in a positive way. When I arrived in Michigan, I was very blue how I should manage these feelings. However, I really didn’t need to worry about the negative feelings. When I met my painting friends, they changed my mood quickly. I think I really needed it and wanted it. I think that’s the meaning of this time’s trip for me.
At the school, I took a portrait class from my favorite teacher, San Do. I painted a Victorian lady with him. I love taking his class because he is funny. His class is always fun, and all students couldn’t stop laughing as usual too.
Painting portraits is always fun. After I finish settling up our new house, I really want to start practicing portraits again! Thank you so much for teaching me, San Do! See you in October!!
