Hello there!!! How have you been? I hope you all are doing fine.

Today I want to show you my miniatures. I painted  on some Limoges white porcelain. I bought them in Italy last December. I have been collecting Limoges white porcelain miniature boxes because I love them. They are so cute, and it’s always so much fun to paint miniature flowers or something on them! I hope you like my hand painted miniature boxes.

I used the patterns from Brigit Porter’s studies, but I didn’t use her techniques. I have been learning one-fire techniques from my painting school for years. So, I painted these boxes with the techniques from my school during I was doing my assignments to use the same colors.

I haven’t painted miniatures for a while, and I really enjoyed painting them. I still have some Limoges boxes and want to paint on them again!

I hope I can see you all on my art blog next week! I will try my best!!

Have a lovely weekend!!!

R.I.P Alfred Toledano

Posted in Dresden, European Style, flower painting with tags , , , , on January 20, 2017 by yumi

Hi there! How have you been?

Today,  I want to pay tribute to my painting teacher, Alfred Toledano. He passed away two years ago, and I didn’t know that until I heard it from my Italian teacher in Italy last December. When I heard he passed away, I was shocked.

I learned from Alfred Toledano in Tybee island, Georgia, the States more than five years ago. It was my first time to see him in person, but before that I had known about him through my other painting teacher, San Do. I bought his art piece at an Arizona school eight years ago from San Do. He was selling Alfredo’s hand painted porcelain at his classroom then. He talked about Alfredo with lots of jokes and I thought some day I wanted to learn from Alfred because I love the Dresden Style.

Three years later, I got a chance to learn from Alfred at Tybee. I took two of his classes with my Alabama mom, Dixie. He was a really cute old gentleman. He didn’t speak English so much, but he was a great teacher. I really liked him. Since then, I met him at a Canada international porcelain show, several times at San Do’s painting studio in Floida,  American international porcelain Show in Florida and of course Tybee school as well. Every time I met him, he smiled and called me “Yumi!!!!” and kissed on my both cheeks. That’s because he was European.  I liked the way he greeted me. He gave me a huge hug as well.

It was in American international porcelain show, Florida when I met him last time. He was drawing something on a piece of paper. He gave me a big smile and huge hug as well then. After finishing the drawing, he signed his name on it and gave it to me. I still keep it and it has become one of my treasures of Alfredo’s memories with his hand painted porcelain.

I painted this piece to pay tribute to Alfredo. I mixed Dresden and the Japanese style a bit to create my style of Dresden.

As thinking about Alfredo, he was a great artist, teacher and friend to me. I really miss him. I sometimes want to paint Dresden from his studies to mix with my style from now on to remember him.

I hope he is enjoying painting in heaven too.

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.

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!

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.

Dresdens with the American Style!!!!!

Posted in American Syle, Dresden, European Style, flower painting, Meissen Style with tags , , , , , , on February 1, 2013 by yumi

Hi there!

Today I got my digital camera from the electric shop where I bought it. I took some my newest Dresden plates’s pictures immidiataly!

I’m happy that I can show my newest artwork here again!!

I painted them with open medium and named the techniques Dresden with the American style because I usually paint Dresdens with fat oil.

I used some San Do’s painting medium and mixing medium, but I’m happy they seem to be as pretty as painting with some fat oil.

I used my Dresden teacher, Alfredo Tradano’s Dresden patterns, but I I painted them with some Japanese colors for Dresden, some Japanese and British blushes that I’ve been used to, some San Do’s mixing and painting medium. I designed them by myself. I think for Dresden beginners, using some open medium is much easier to handle. I like this techniques.

My Snake Plate with Some Chelsea Birds

Posted in birds, Dresden, European Style, Fantasy, flower painting, International Convention, Meissen Style, Nyon Rose with tags , , , , , , , , on November 18, 2012 by yumi

Hi, everyone!  I returned to Japan from Thailand last night. I had a great great time with my friends, Ingrid and Helga there. I will report the Thai convention later on another blog entry and this time I want to show one of my exhivision pieces.

I ordered the plate online. When I looked at it, I thought it was very unique because it had some relieves of snakes. My Chinese zodiac is a snake and I thought it might be a lucky charm for me. It was true, and I received an award at the Thai convention. I will show my award piece later on another entry too.

My American friend, Dixie loves Chelsea birds and I’ve known she has wanted to paint them. So, I designed the plate for her.

I added some snake scales and it worked out for my snake plate beautifully. When one of my painting teachers,  Ivonne Planos looked at my plate, she praised me very much at the Thai convention. I was very happy at the moment.  I painted the plate with some pine oil and lavender oil.

When I paint other Chelsea birds, I want to try to paint with some different oil.
