Beauty in the Ordinary

" Beauty in the Ordinary "
22.7cm x 25.8cm
Oil on stretched canvas
Available for purchase on Daily Paintworks 





I painted this piece from the photo I took in my kitchen. 
Beauty is everywhere if you just take a closer look once in a while.  Sometimes it's hard to find, because they are so close to where you are.  Maybe it's you in the crowd like the wooden spatula,
or maybe me in red in the ladle:)

Thank you for taking a closer look.
Have a nice day!

Great news!

Hi, there!  It's been a while... apologies for that...but today...
I've got a something to say...
My piece, " Beauty in the Ordinary " was selected for APERO gallery June 2017 ' Surrounding ' Fine Art Online Catalogue!!

In my head, Christopher Cross was singing, Oh, the canvas can do miracles~, just you wait and see. Believe me ~ ...too old?  Anyway, the miracle just happened.  I am so happy and greatful to be a part of the collection.  Thank you APERO gallery for accepting me.  It means a lot to me.  APERO Gallery team is so professional, supportive and wonderful.  I love the curator's review for my piece, it's quite precise and written in such a beautiful way.
Please go visit their site to see the collection! www.showapero.com

Now I gotta go paint.
Have a miracle day!

Gold in Peace

" Gold in Peace "
Oil on canvas panel 6"x 6"
Available for purchase on Daily Paintworks




I used a glazing technique for this one.  Firstly I've painted using only black and white, and waited for a few weeks to dry, then added colors to complete the painting.  In that way, it will give more depth and rich colors in a painting.

Hopefully this piece will bring more peace into your mind.

Thank you for viewing!  

Love & Peace

I love you just the way you are

"  I love you just  the way you are "
Oil pastels on board 30cm x 43cm


 I thought I was not SNS type of person (I'm such a low tech person from a high tech country!) but recently I started Instagram.  Guess what?  I really enjoy getting the reactions because whenever after I finished my piece, I just feel like asking to anyone, " So, what do you think? " I got many feedbacks after I posted this one. Well, art really is a universal language besides music and dance, isn't it? and the world is getting smaller and smaller!  How exciting!

Thank you for viewing.
Have a beautiful day!

Canvass of Life

" Canvass of Life "
Oil pastels on board 42cm x 60cm


I remember when I was working on this piece, I still wasn't quite sure exactly what I was supposed to do, although I knew somewhere deep inside that art was my true path to pursue in this lifetime.  So, the words were for myself, too.  I guess following my intuition always never go wrong even if it scares me. :)  The theme, canvass has 3 meanings.  Canvas for paintings, canvas for sailing boat and canvass as examine and inspect.  Oh, well, life is a journey, isn't it? 
 I had fun painting the metallic part.  Maybe I should choose metallic motifs sometime...

Thank you for viewing!
Have a great day!

Align yourself with Grace

" Align yourself with Grace "
Oil pastel on board 30cm x 21cm
Gifted


Here is another oil pastels work.  This was a gift for my friend who is a great Pilates instructor.  The word "Alignment " is essential for Pilates method and the orchid represents a human body, so it has double meaning as physically and spiritually... and guess what?  She really loved it!

Thank you for viewing.  Hope you have a beautiful day!

Taste every slice of your life!


" Taste every slice of your life! "
Oil pastels on board 30cm x 43cm
Contact me for the price


This is one of my previous work in oil pastels.  The most different part of this medium is to use fingers instead of paint brushes in order to blend the colors.  The reason why I switched to oils is that I wanted to work on more details, however, I love the texture of the paint through my fingers, so I still use the technique for my oil paintings.

The words came up to my mind spontaneously during the process.  
You can say this is my version of  "Carpe diem!"
and all the colors blending into one with love...

Thank you for viewing.  Seize the day!
