Summer Etchings

Here is Main Main again. She is my model for my etching plate.
Finally, I am picking up my printmaking technique again.
The last time I did my etching prints that was in 2002.
I love to do etching. The fun part of etching is like cooking.
Each print won't be the same, the paper , the ink color, the press all can affect the printing.
Working drawing on the metal plate is not only one step which is fun.
Hard ground , soft ground, aquatint ... all those technique surprise me sometimes.

Summer Smile

This is my mother-in-law's portrait.
At the age 50, she looks great and healthy.
I hope she stays healthy and happy.

my cat

She is my family, my sister -- Mian Mian --
I don't want to remember how old she is now,
but I remember last time I talked about her with my sister.
She is over 18 years old.
In cat's cycle, 18 years old = human being 90 years old.
She is old but still acts like 5 years old.
My dad gives her fresh fishes once a while,
She got spoiled.
Even the tiny little fish without bone you notice,
she still leaves the head and tail on the plate.

Every time when I am back to my hometown,
She always followed me at home in the first day.
To keep me company.

I Love her - Mian Mian -

To be continue........

too busy those days,
don't know I will continue to finish them,
If not, I will try to make new one.

I had a little bit hard time on the first one.
The second one, I love the photo so much,
But I can't get it right.
Well, I will do it again.

Happy birthday to Jenny!!

inspired by Yoshimoto Nara

My first drawing in this year, pick up my favorite artist- Yoshimoto Nara.
I tried to learn the color and learned to use pastel.
Its good start to begin what I like than what I used to be.

Thanks Natsumi encouraged me to keep going and also inspired me her daily work.
Since the classes I wanted to take were canceled,
but I think you all can be my best teachers and inspirations.

My goal for the daily drawing is keep going on the basic drawing,
study color usage, finding the interest,
and also using art to be communicate bridge.
