New works….Mid December

Hello!

Life is going. I’ve been doing more digital paintings. I am learning to enjoy it more. I still miss using watercolors and acrylics.  Digital painting is convenient  and less mess (no clean up). I am finding that my paintings a very “painterly” and almost sculptural in nature. Here are few of my latest works:

I’m considering entering some art contest.  It is all part of having more confidence in my work.  I do have to say that my ideas and my aesthetics have become more refined. I’m willing to take more risks.

 

Until next time…thanks for stopping by.

Art History and me

Hello!

I am happy to report that I have been painting a lot more. Well, I have been digital painting a lot more. I still feel strange calling that painting because I am not using actual paint (I know, I have issues) but I have doing some really nice and interesting things. I really like experimenting with light and color and shapes in ways that most  people cannot (or are not prepared to) relate with. I’m not a photo-realistic artist.  I am more of an abstract expressionist (if you had to put me in a category)…I think. Sometimes, my work looks more impressionist like. I work from a very internal, surreal, subconscious space. Almost dream-like… here is one piece I finished the other night:

I’ve also been editing some photos I took while still in Japan. I feel a little odd posting them after such a longtime. I think the distant between what I was going through at the time and now is helping me cope with  not doing all I wanted to there.  I tried not to take such “touristy” photos.  There are more photos I want to go through, but here is one I am particularly proud of. I did do some “digital” enhancing via photo filters, but not too much.

I will post more paintings and photos soon.
