Oil on linen, 2018
22.7 x 15.8 cm

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.

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
