forest Original Painting 12 x 6 feet


title: "forest 2013 12x6 feet"
dimensions: 12x6 feet
production: 2013 May

Original acrylic painting on canvas that is not stretched nor framed. This can be hung vertically or horizontally. The extra black edges can be used to stretch over to a frame. You'll need a carpenter to build a such a frame and need an experienced hand to stretch this size of canvas. I've sold about 10 of this scale, and most buyers hang as is. When they moved, they simply rolled it up to transport it to a new place.

A photo below is the same painting as the above photo but hung vertically instead of horizontally. This piece is entirely versatile, meaning you can choose the orientation on how it's hung.

No, I do NOT have a steady hand. I only learned how to work with the naturally occurring shakes and twitches of a hand while painting the lines. As a matter of fact, anyone can be trained to draw steady lines with enough practice.

Everything contributes to shaking and twitching of a hand. Blood circulation of our heart pumping blood throughout the body, breathing of our lungs pumping in and out the air, and mental distraction, both from surrounding stimuli and from our own thoughts cause our hand to shake or twitch during drawing or painting.

It seems impossible to keep a hand steady. To make the very long story extremely short, the secret I found is to work with the shake instead of resisting it. I learned that by attempting to eliminate the shakes and twitches, it would only get worse. Elimination of shakes and twitches was not possible.

The shakes and twitches stop only if you fully accept the shakes and twitches. That’s how I can paint steady lines with my shaky hand.

Cherry Blossoms in Exile - art and music and good company  Facebook link

Opening Reception     Friday, March 1, 2013 7:00pm

Blackball Universe Music, 230 Madison, Oakland, CA 94606

Your's truly will have a show at a very music oriented place, showcasing a little bit of everything, from sophisticated to funky stuff. There will be my signature work, LineScaping works, mixed media collage, recycled art, and paintings, lots of prints, the famous notecards, and more!

Some sneak pre-peek at the show...

There will be two other artist who will share the exhibit.

Ashley Adams is a SF Bay Area native who calls upon the spirit of the outdoors to "make her viewers look at nature through a different perspective." Finding the unexpected in our natural environment, Ashley explores the beauty of life through photography. She has been featured in a variety of publications, including Photo Induced and Arts Acts.
Tomo Kamiya is a recent graduate of the Pasadena Art Center College of Design with a B.F.A. in Illustration, but has been creating and developing her style for years. Originally from Japan, Kamiya grew up partly in Tokyo and partly in the smaller city of Sendai. Using these opposite environments for inspiration, her art conveys the split nature and duality of life.

Artist's reception on the first Friday in March, 3/1 at 7pm. Live painting by Momoko Sudo, and live music by Blackball Universe.

"Cherry Blossoms in Exile" will be on display from March 1-30, with regular Saturday hours from 12-4pm.

Florescent Red to Start with

This year, 2013, I want to use the florescent colors. Since florescent colors in acrylic paint are pricey, I am now experimenting in making my own paints by mixing pigment powders into different medias. To do this, I need to experiment with different ratios as well as adding chemicals to adjust viscosity. 

I bought only florescent red to practice this process of making paints. Once I figure out the recipe of making paints, other florescent colors, such as yellow and green, should work the very similar ways. 

The thing about pigment is that each pigments are different chemicals so they may act differently. 

Nonetheless, in a long run I should be able save some money by making my own paint as opposed to buying already made paints in tubes and jars. They are really expensive, especially certain colors like florescent colors.

Blue in 25 minutes job

Often I am asked how long it takes - to paint all those lines. The answer varies depending on the complexities of the paintings. This painting above was done in 25 minutes of line painting. The size is 2 feet by 3 feet. Done on January 25, 2013. It looks yellow because of the poor photographing. It is actually white and blue painting.
