Hi, there. How have you been? How did you spend Christmas holidays for this year? I’m doing fine and took my last classes for this year both in Tokyo and Kanazawa City a couple of days ago.  I really enjoyed hanging out with my friends who love to paint and painting teachers.

How was this year for you?  It was great for me.  I had a lot of experiences through both my Japanese painting schools and American schools. I met a lot of new people there. I leaned a lot. I really think that I could improve my painting skills a lot this year.

Meanwhile, I’d like to show my mother- in- law’s matching cup and saucer set today.  I painted roses on Japanese Okura Tableware. She loves china, so she really liked them.  I’ve been painting five Imari  plates for her right now. When I finish painting them, I will show them next time.

A Gift For My Mom

Hi, friends. How are you doing today? I’ve been busy to hang out with my British friend right now. He has been staying at my house. So, we rather enjoy looking around my area where I live!

Anyway, I would like to show my new two matching cup and saucer sets to you. I painted them for my mom. I also painted different design on other sets for my mom-in-law. Next time I will show them. This time, I’d like to show my mom’s sets.

I painted them in sepia colors. I designed and painted the gold parts, too.

Actually, I bought the white porcelain at Okura. It is a Japanese china company. Most products are very expensive, but they have the highest quality. The white on the porcelain is so beautiful. That’s why our Royal family including our Emperor and Empress also has been using the Okura’s china.

When I designed for my mom, I thought that I wanted to use the beautiful white color on the porcelain. So, I tried to paint them simple. Although I want my mom to use them, after she received them, she said that she couldn’t use them because they looked so lovely! She has been decorating them on her cup board. I’m so happy that my mom loves them!!
