Painting with Simona-Marina Braathen from France マスタークラブ大阪のシモナ先生のセミーに参加させていただきました

This entry is both in Japanese and English, but I don’t translate what I write in English into Japanese, visa versa. If you are interested in what I write in your unknown language, feel free to ask me. I am willing to tell you.

昨日、お誘いいただいてマスタークラブ大阪支部のセミナーに参加してきました。先生は、フランス人のシモナ・マリナ先生で、細かいレースの描き方を習ってきました。マスタークラブの展示会が大阪であり、シモナ先生はその展示会のために来日されていました。私は、初めてそのセミナーに参加させていただきました。シモナ先生とは2年前、フロリダのIPATショーでお会いしたことがありますが、その時は、全くお話ししませんでした。だから、セミナーの前、英語が通じるのか少し不安でした。結局は、心配する必要など全くありませんでした。先生の英語は素晴らしく、どんな質問にも答えてくださいました。マスタークラブ大阪の皆さんも初めて参加した私にとても親切に接してくださいました。楽しくおしゃべりしながら新しいことを習うのは、本当に楽しかったです。シモナ先生、マスタークラブ大阪の皆様、大変お世話になりました。今回マスタークラブの作品展にお邪魔させていただくことができず、セミナーだけの参加となりましたことお詫び申し上げます。次回は是非作品展にお邪魔して、皆様の素晴らしい作品を拝見させていただくのを楽しみにしております。また、マスタークラブのますますのご発展をお祈り申し上げます。 金澤 由美子

Yesterday, I took a class from Simona-Marina Braathen from France in Osaka, Japan with members of Master club. Master Club had an exhibition and she was visiting Japan as a feature artist for the show. Master Club is a porcelain painting club in Japan to improve our painting skills. I am not a member, but some of members asked me to take the class. Well, I had a great time with members and Simona. It was so much fun! I was just in love with her techniques because I love preciseness, lol. We made a pendant to scratch the surface of the porcelain with unfired black paints with a toothpick. The butterfly on the porcelain looks lace! The techniques were amazing!! I learned some new techniques, and now I have so many ideas to use them on my works.

First of all, I want to finish my piece. Secondly, I want to practice what I learned. Thirdly, I want to create my own art with the techniques!

You will see my piece with Simona’s techniques some day soon.

Thank you as always for your support! See you around here again next weekend!

Hi again!

I’m happy that I can show you my artwork every day, lol!

Today’s entry is “Voyage”.  I painted it for a workshop at Dixie’s.

I have several good people with whom I can enjoy painting at Dixie’s, and it’s their request plate.

Last year, I received a mention award at the international Thai convention, and this is the very similar design as the box that I got the award.

I love the design that a gold dragon is surrounding the sea and sky. I think it’s pretty neat.

A Piece of Jewelry Painting

Posted in American Syle, Jewerly Painting, The GA Seminar by the Sea Porcelain Art School, Uncategorized with tags , , , on June 21, 2013 by yumi

Hi friends!

It’s getting hotter and more humid in Japan, and how are you doing?

After I returned to Japan from my trip, America and Mexico, I’ve been settling up our new house. It’s getting final, and I think I can start painting again in this week. Since I have a friend from America at home, he has been helping me to settle up.

This week I am planning on going to my Kutani teacher’s painting studio for the firs time in three months, and I want to go to a big Japanese antique show in Kyoto with my friend from America. Since I’m a huge huge fan of both of Japanese and Western antiques, I can’t wait! I will take a bunch of pictures, and will show you in my blog!

Today I want to show you my recent piece of jewelry panting. I painted this one for a demo at the GA school by the Sea in February. I demonstrated how to paint the jewelry piece at the school, and many people came to my demo.

 

You can see my demo pictures here.

Hi there!

It’s been a while since I posted my last entry. How have you been?

I don’t like saying excuses, but I screwed up some of my kutani plates that would be supposed to become my first blog entry  a couple of days ago.  In addition, my digital camera died and I’ve been fixing it. So, for a while, I couldn’t post anything here.  Although I still haven’t gotten my camera yet, I realized that I have some pictures of my Jewelry painting that I painted for the Thai convention in my PC.

It was supposed to become my teaching project at Bangsai, the royal academy of porcelain painting in Thailand, but I taught a different piece of jewelry.

So, today I want to show my new jewelry painting.

Canadian Porcelain Painting National Convention

Posted in International Convention, Jewerly Painting with tags , on May 18, 2012 by yumi

Hello, friends from Japan! Today is a sunny day in Japan and I’m in a very happy mood!

Today’s entry is about Canadian Porcelain Painting National Convention!

I attended the show with two of my dearest American friends, Gay and Emilie.  The show was in Ottawa, Canada, and it was my first time to visit there. We drove there for 12 hours from Flint, Michigan. Gay has a special driver license, and according to her, she doesn’t need to show her passport to the immigration.  After we left Gay’s house and had a several hours drive, we arrived at the immigration. We parked our car and went to a bank to exchange American dollars into Canadian dollars. I loved the Canadian 50 dollars because they were so pretty! I’ve never seen such lovey bills before. After that we got in the car again to pass through the gate for immigration. Gay opened windows and a door in my site to show me to the officer. I showed my passport while sitting in the seat. It was my first time to pass through the gate, and I thought it was so cool!

While we were loosing and sometimes stopping by some coffee shops, we arrived in Ottawa. It was almost midnight. Since I’m not used to the long drive, I was exhausted.

The following day, we woke up at 7:30 am and started preparing our booth after breakfast. I was so nervous because I realized that I had to demonstrate my first presentation “how to paint jewelry” in English at 4:00 pm. It means my first demo in my entire life in English!!!!! I did practiced only once with Emilie at Gay and Emilie’s painting meeting. Emilie became my interpreter even thought she didn’t know any Japanese at all.

Even if I was so nervous and upset, my turn came. I didn’t remember what I said and showed in English, but I did it in English. Many people came to my demo and they said that they loved it. I saw two of my American friends, Suzanne who is the owner of GA seminar by the sea and Dell who is Suzanne’s friend and a secretary for the school in my demo. They encouraged me while demonstrating. Emilie also supported me. Thanks to them, my first demo achieved success. Thank you so much, Emilie, Suzanne and Dell! After the demo, two of young Canadian painters approached me and told me how much they enjoyed it. Some French Canadian painters also told me they loved it. They bought some painting supplies from me.

It was also the first time for me to have a booth.

I sold some of my hand painted miniatures and painting supplies.  A couple of days ago I received a letter from Canada. It’s from the person who bought my hand painted miniature at the international convention in Canada. She was the first buyer for me in my entire life. I still remember when she bought it from me, I was so excited! The miniature wasn’t cheap because I painted tiny roses on a Limoges white porcelain. I didn’t want to sell my artwork cheap either.

She took some pictures of my miniature and my pictures and sent them with the letter. According to her, she made a brooch with my miniature and wanted to show it to me. She also said how much she loves it.

I’m so happy, and they became my treasure. It made my day!

I met a lot of international famous porcelain painters in the show. Some of them had their booths. I also met some my Canadian painting friends there again.

Last day I also demonstrated other presentation “A Japanese style Painting”.  Since I’m not an expert of Japanese Style painting, I explained our painting history and showed how to paint. After that I suggested to everybody who was in my demo that they should try painting with my Japanese blushes. Emilie also became my interpreter again, and Gay attended my demo as well. Since I knew all of them haven’t experienced to paint with some Japanese brushes, they really seemed to enjoy trying it. This also achieved success.
