Together

Together
Oil on linen, 2018
22.7 x 15.8 cm
POR






















These dragon fruits were from my friend’s garden in the southern island of Japan.  Certainly I enjoyed the taste afterwards.  It was so good!

I often use Burnt sienna trans for the under painting like this since I like the warm feeling which will see through afterwards.
The main color was permanent rose mixed with burnt sienna trans, vermillion, ultramarine blue, chrome yellow and titanium white, I believe.


Thank you for viewing.
Have a wonderful day!

Pet portraits commission 




















This is a commissioned pet portrait piece I’ve done this summer.

I’m so greatful for the opportunity to paint their lovely family member.
It’s always a great pleasure to do Pet Portraits since I’m a big animal lover.
Thankfully they loved it so much which made me happy!
Thank you so much.  

Pets change our lives.
They are not only adorable but also they teach us the most important thing in life.
Even though it’s not a lot, I’d like to help them by using my gift. So, I donate my partial profits to Best Friends animal charity. (best friends.org)


Thank you for viewing.
Have a great day!
