Hello there!

How have you been? I am very sorry that I couldn’t update my art blog at all. I went back to my painting school, and I am busy for doing my assignment. I am in a mid course of advanced and have to paint a lot to finish the course.

I am glad that today I can post something! I painted this place more than four years ago at my painting school. I  painted this Christmas place with one fire techniques.  Do you plan on painting something Christmas this year? Do you have some ideas for painting? I hope I can paint something Christmas this year and can update it here. I will try my best.

My teacher in Tokyo gave me two objects, the burn and poinsettias. I combined two of them and designed the plate. My teacher loved it, and I got a big compliment from her. She wanted to keep the plate to show it to other students and recently she returned it to me. She had showed it to others for more than four years. I am so honored, lol.

Tomorrow, I will update my other blog that I have been introducing Japanese culture.  So, stay turned!

Merry Christmas, my dear friends!

I’m very sorry that I hadn’t updated my blog posts for a long time. Two months ago, I returned to Japan from my last studying abroad in America this year. I felt like burned out for a while and became lazy gradually.  I apologize it to you all. I started blogging again, and I will show you what I learned in America and what I did there one by one.

In Japan today is a Christmas eve and tomorrow is a Christmas day. Did you receive some gifts from Santa?

In my case, I received a wonderful gift from Santa this summer!

This summer, our friend, Zach from America stayed at our house for two months. One day he found a kitten, and our daughter named him Jiji. He was only 6 weeks old.

He is a very playful kitten and he turns 8 month old. He turned out a very handsome tubby cat. I’m enjoying being a mom again for him.

I painted his teeth box, and this is one of my newest artwork. I hope you like it.

I love porcelain painting because we can paint any kinds of shaped thing like this teeth box. I think painting only on round dishes or square tiles are quite boring. I love designing for the different shaped porcelain and painting on them. I really think it’s one of fun things for porcelain painters.

When I found Jiji’s baby teeth, I thought painting a box to keep his baby teeth was a wonderful idea. I got the white box from one of my American moms in Michigan, Kay. Thank you so much for the box, Kay!

Hi there!
How have you been? I’ve still been busy painting painting and painting, lol, but it’s my hobby, job and everything in my life!

Today I’d like to show my Christmas ornaments here. It’s one of entries for the Facebook competition, “Go for Gold”.

Since I could entry up to three, I painted three pieces for it. I didn’t win the contest, and my Thai friend won! I’m so happy for him! Congratulations, Bond!!!!

My Christmas ornaments

My Christmas ornaments, American style, European Style

I painted some National flags on some ornaments to show my theme, “Go for Gold”. If I couldn’t design some National flags on them, in that case instead of the flags, I wrote “Merry Christmas” in various languages. If I still couldn’t do that, I decorated the ornaments with National colors for some countries. My ornaments are very international. I painted some Nyon roses from Switzerland, Dresden flowers from Germany and mixed up the American style and European Style. I hope you love my ideas and the ornaments. Which one is the best ornaments for you?

I painted the ornament from an antique card and I bought it in America with Gay. When I painted it, I really missed her because for a while I haven’t met her. I even haven’t called her for a while because I’ve been very busy painting.

I couldn’t paint ornaments for all countries, but I tried to write Merry Christmas in other languages as many as possible I can.  I know this idea is crazy, but I love the idea for Go for Gold because all of the world cerebrates Christmas like Olympic games. I saw some sad scenes of athletes  and crowd members fighting over diplomatic issues during the Olympic games. I really hope for Christmas this year this world get together and celebrate our peace.  I wish next year would be better for all of us.
