JPAC Convention

Posted in International Convention, Uncategorized with tags on June 4, 2018 by yumi

Hello there! How have you been so far? It’s been a while since I posted my last entry.

This blog entry is written both in Japanese and English. However, I don’t translate Japanese into English, visa versa.  I write whatever I want in the languages.

JPACの皆様、作品展おめでとうございました。お友達3人でお邪魔させていただき素晴らしい作品の数々を拝見できましたこと、また、JPACのメンバーでポーセレンを通じて交流させていただいておりますたくさんのお友達にお目にかかりお話しさせてただけましたこと、とても幸せに存じます。わずかばかりではありますが、写真を撮らせてただける機会がありましたので、ここに掲載させていただきます。2年後に今後は東京で開催されますとのこと、ますますのご発展をお祈り申し上げます。

I went to the JPAC convention with two of my friends after I returned from the States. It was in Kyoto a couple of weeks ago. The JPAC is one of the Japanese porcelain painting groups name. I don’t belong to the group.

I saw amazing art pieces and met lots of my Japanese painting friends there. All pieces gave me influence and motivated me a lot.

Since I got some chances to take some photos ( I was not allowed to take each pieces’ photos.), I would love to show them.

The art show was there. The building was built 400 years ago. I think it’s really cool to have an art show in such an old building!

This building has a beautiful Japanese garden inside. It was very cool to see beautiful art and garden at the same time.

Blue Bird

Posted in Animal painting, birds, The Michigan Shcool, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on April 16, 2018 by yumi

Hello there!

How have you been so far? Before me going back to the States, I want to update my art blog again! I am very happy with my recent bird painting, and I wanted to show it soon to you! I believe in that blue birds bring happiness to us. So, my painted blue bird brings happiness to all people who follow my art blog!!

This is an order piece from one of my portrait painting teachers from the States, Jerri Cookie Barton. When I met her last time at Gay’s school, I showed her my humming bird  and the other bird that I painted to Dixie. She really loved them, especially, the Dixie bird. She ordered my hand-painted bird from me. What’s the honor for me it is!!!! I was very excited!! I was willing to get the order from her and enjoyed painting it, to try to paint my best bird!

Then, here it is! I am so happy with the result! I hope Cookie will like it as well! I can’t wait to see her smile at Gay’s school.

Mushrooms

Posted in European Style, Fantasy, Uncategorized with tags , , on April 7, 2018 by yumi

Hello there! How have you been so far?

I am happy that I can update my art blog constantly!! I think I am getting better at managing my time to keep painting, learning conversational English and Italian, knitting, exercising and so on.  I started making studies in English as well. I will sell the studies in my classes, Alabama and Michigan first. I still have to learn how to sell online, but after I settle everything, I will start selling them online too.

Anyway, today I show you my mushroom plates. They are for my host moms, two for Alabama (Dixie and Elaine) and one for Michigan (Gay). I hope they all like them.

Somehow since I was a kid, I really really love mushrooms. So, I am happy that I painted them.  When I saw my hand painted mushrooms, they made me smile because they look so cute! Which one do you like the best? I definitely want to paint mushrooms for me again!!!

I love these cute mushrooms, lol

 

Now, I started painting two birds and some strawberries on different plates , and I have to paint some jewels as well. I am designing my last tea set for my painting school.  I have so many ideas that I want to paint. I hope I can paint all of them, lol.

I think this blog post will be the last entry before me going back to the States. I will be there for a month. So, I will see you again here after one month.

Thanks for taking a look at my blog post! Happy painting, everyone!

Spring Has Come!

Posted in birds, European Style, flower painting, fruit painting, fruit painting, Modern Style, Uncategorized with tags , , on March 22, 2018 by yumi

Hello there! How have you been so far?

I am sorry for the delay. I was busy with painting and doing my homework from my painting school. I am happy that I finally finished my bird painting! Yay!!

This is for my class in Alabama. I have heard the class has already filled, and I am so excited to see my people at Dixie’s painting studio! Thank you so much for everything, Dixie!!!

I painted some cherry blossoms, cherries and a bird. I picked up the bird from a western book, and the bird is not from Japan. However, I think it’s okay that we mix because we are not bird experts. We are painters, right? I think it’s so-called artistic license, heehe!

I hope my American painting friends can experience Japanese the spring while my they are painting. I will bring our spring to Alabama in a month! Our cherries are not like Americans. Ours are more orange-ish color and smaller.

Now, I started painting some mushrooms and pendant tops.  I hope you can see all the results before I go back to the States! I will try my best!

Have a lovely day/night!

See you in two weeks!

Dresden Plates

Hello there! How have you been so far?

I am sorry for the delay. I have been busy with my homework from my painting school and other things to do.  I still have to paint a lot. Even so, I am happy that my Dresden plates turned out very pretty. I painted these for my classes in Alabama.

I painted the same Dresden bouquets with different designs. I am very curious which one do you prefer?

I will teach these plates at Dixie’s painting studio in April. If you are interested in my class, please contact Dixie. I look forward to seeing you in my class.

Now, I have to paint at least three birds for orders, one plate for wedding and my homework from my painting school.  I hope I can update my blog in two weeks!

See you around here again in two week! Have a lovely week!!

Vase

Posted in European Style, landscapes, Uncategorized with tags , , on January 15, 2018 by yumi

Hello there. This is my first blog post for this year. I hope I will be able to post more than last year.

I painted this for my painting school as a school subject. So, it’s not modern, and it’s very classic. I learned how much difficult for me to paint on curves. I struggled a lot.  I like the design, though.

I think I need practice to paint on curves more, especially when I paint complex stuff. I think I can paint flowers, but I am not good at at least landscapes on curves.

I want to know how to use this vase thing. Does anybody know how to use this? How do we call this? If you know, please let me know. I will change the blog title then.

Now, I am practicing a bird, a mouse, fairies and a school subject. I hope I can show you one of them in two weeks!

I hope everyone started a great week! See you around soon again!

Fruits Box

Hello there! How are you doing? Today is the last day for this year, 2017! We will have a new year, 2018 in a couple of hours in Japan! I am so excited it!!!

In this very last moment of this year, I want to share my hand painted fruits box with you. This is a school subject and very classic.

It took more than five months for me to get permission to fire this box from my teacher. I am glad that I finally finished this.

Tomorrow I want to start painting my own design!

Since WordPress  have given up to let us know how many people have visited our blogs a year since a couple of years ago, I don’t know how many people have visited my blog this year. Even so, I think many people have visited my blog from Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook and search engines. I do appreciate all of you who have visited my blog.

I will keep blogging this until I will make my dreams come true! This blog will be history for me to make my dreams come true!

I really hope I will show you better pieces next year! I will try all my best!

Good luck next year, everyone! See you next year again!!!
