Watercolor painting for birthday gift
Today, I drew and completed a portrait in watercolor for my friend Tea, who has a birthday soon. When I look at the beautiful friends around me, I want to paint that glaring beauty. Now, starting with Tea, I'm going to draw pictures for my friends celebrating their birthday.
When I draw a person's face, I always pay attention to the energy that person radiates. For some people, the energy itself is so bright and clear that when I draw a picture, it seems like light comes out of the picture. While drawing Tha today, I thought that I should become this kind of person.
International Virtual Art Show, "Lovely Things", Brouhaha Art gallery
My paintings mainly focus on capturing invisible energy and expressing it using acrylic, watercolor, and digital. Therefore, instead of painting with the same theme and style, I focus on finding a medium and method that can express the captured energy.
For example, the black cat I submitted this time wanted to express the mysterious and lovely energy of black. There is literally a lot of prejudice against black cats because of their color.
However, rather than white that reflects all colors and shines on its own, I value black as it absorbs all colors and makes itself black but brightens attention. A black cat is an animal that shows the value of black. In particular, the black cat's subtle and mysterious eyes shine like an emerald. This is the loveliness that only black cats have.
The above text is the contents and pictures of the virtual exhibition gallery held in December under the title of Lovely Things.
Below is a picture of the exhibition in the gallery.

Every year at Thanksgiving, immigrants gather in small groups of family members or friends to roast turkey, since most of the families they visit are far away. This year, my family stopped by a friend's house to roast turkey and have a good time. When you live in a foreign country, your friends become more like family, and your relationship becomes deeper than that of your relatives. It is a new culture created by living away from home and loneliness.
Below is the bread carefully made by my friend's daughter. The flour dough is decorated like a beautiful work of art and baked deliciously.
When I got home, I painted Turkey in watercolor. Then I'll be surprised that I've never painted Turkey before. As an artist, I think that I should be more interested in the things around me and paint them.
Recent Artworks for Dickens show
As a child, I loved looking out the street through the blinds on the windows. Because the world seen through the blinds does a similar job to the painters making their fingers into a rectangular shape to compose the composition. I changed the angle of objects through the window blinds and thought the world looked like a painting.
And the clouds passing through the blinds were very impressive to me. The world I saw through the blinds always existed with time. It was an unstoppable world that was always flowing and changing, and many stories were hidden.
While painting, at some point, I felt the limitations of the shape and size of paper and picture frames sold for artists. The world inside the blinds I saw as a child was small, but there was time, flow, and many stories, but my paintings stuffed into commercially available canvases felt like they were just stopped at some point in the past.
I wanted to add the axis of time to my paintings. I drew a picture by cutting the paper into small pieces like film. And I put them together in chronological order.
A timeline is a written representation of a period of time, usually a line, showing the order in which related events occurred. In this sequence, I can draw a picture like the world I saw through the blinds as a child.
I'm going to submit this experimental painting, Christmas in Timeline, to one of the shows this winter, The Dickens Show with Night Heron watercolor artist's group.
Deck the hall means decorating it for Christmas, especially if you are hosting guests. these decorations. You may include centerpieces, ornaments, or garlands made of greenery or branches from fir, pine, cedar, balsam, or other evergreen branches.
Deck the Halls, annual event in GalleryNorth
Gallery North is pleased to present Deck the Halls, its annual group exhibition of small original works for holiday giving, on view from November 17 to December 23, 2022.
Pre-Christmas exhibitions don't just hang pictures that express Holliday. Instead, only small paintings under 14 inches in size will be exhibited. This exhibition is centered around local painters.
In my case, I submitted a picture titled Blue Mountain this time.
In my paintings, holidays and winter do not appear frequently. I don't often feel energy through events. Mainly I paint about objects or phenomena that feel invisible energy. Therefore, most of the paintings are overwhelmingly pictures of images or dreams that have come to mind. Personally, I don't like to draw after looking at photos.
But looking back, I think it's because I don't have good memories of Holliday as a child. As a child, holidays only existed in church or on television. But fortunately, as an adult, I can decorate the Christmas tree, the house, and prepare delicious special meals with my loved ones around me. It seems that Christmas and winter are gradually appearing in my paintings.
Next year, I need to draw a lot of pictures with winter and Christmas in the background.
