Pears in Serenity

“Pears in Serenity”
Oil on canvas panel
6x6 inches
Available for purchase on Daily Paintworks






Here is my last piece in this year.  I like how Meg Ryan described a pear in the movie, “City of Angels”, she said, “It’s sweet, juicy, soft on your tongue, grainy like sugary sand that dissolves in your mouth”... :)

Hope my paintings brought you joy this year.  I’d love to hear your thoughts & comments!  
Please expect more paintings in 2018.  I’m so excited to create and share them to everyone out there!

Thank you for viewing.
Have a great new year!

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)

www.sachiyoshimotoart.com

Okay, so now I can go back to paint!

Grapes in a Paper Bag

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




 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!

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.

Heart of Mine

" Heart of Mine "
6x6 inches
Oil on canvas panel 
Available for purchase on Daily Paintworks 



When I was a teenager, my dad gifted me this necklace.  It's hard to see in the painting, but there are 3 little hearts in the small circle.  I remember my little sister got the one with stars and I was happy getting the one with hearts because it's my favorite symbol.  I wear this quite often ever since then.

I painted from a photo I took at beauty salon on the other day.  I took the necklace off to get a hair cut and put it on the tray. 

"Whatever you do, do it with your heart, because life has no meaning without love" ~My dad :)

Thank you for viewing.
With lots of love~
