Life in Antique Knives

“ Life in Antique Knives”
Oil on canvas panel
6x6 inches
Available for purchase on Daily Paintworks 

Last Sunday I took my mom to a flea market. It was such a perfect day to be outside and I saw these antique bread knives shining beautifully under the tree.  I’m not sure how old they are, but they’re made by Joseph Elliot & Sons Ltd.  Antiques are great objects for painting indeed!

Thank you for viewing.
Have a nice day!

APERO gallery Nov Online Fine Art Catalogue

This is my curated piece from Apero gallery Nov ‘Reflection’ Fine Art Catalogue. Thank you Apero gallery!  It’s such an honor to be a part of it with those great artists.  I love reading the curator review by the curator E.E.Jacks, she describes the artworks so precise and beautifully.  If you haven't seen it yet, please visit their site. www.ShowApero.com

One more thing, I want to announce that recently I launched my website!  It took me such a long time since I did it all by myself who is so low tech.  You will see my portrait and flower drawings at the age of 5 years old in ‘About Me’.  Thanks to my wonderful mom who kept them for such a long time.  I found them when I visited my hometown this year.  I took some photos of another drawings as well, so maybe I will upload in near future on this blog.

My website address is...(sorry, I still need to find out how to link from here to the website)


Okay, so now I can go back to paint!

Thank you for reading.
Have a wonderful day!

Grapes in a Paper Bag

” Grapes in a Paper Bag “
6x6 inches 
Oil on canvas panel 

 Grape season has come! 

I started to paint with black and white in order to get the right value before glazing.
Glazing takes time and I need to be a little patient, but once I started to see the rich and complex colors in a paining, it’s definitely worth doing it!

Thank you for viewing.
 Have a beautiful day!

9x12 inches
Oil on canvas
Pet portrait commission 

Surprisingly it turned out to be her exact life size without knowing since I worked out from a small photo.  The customer who lost the dog told me she could feel her so much out of the painting and totally loved it.  I’m so glad that I could help her in this way.

Thank you for viewing.
Have a nice day!
