A piece of work of the day 36 ~ Bleu

Another patchwork for the birthday card for friend who loves Bleu and Shiraz.

The two are very different in nature and are uniquely beautiful. I used Bleu for the model of the patchwork likely because his moon face was easy to modeling. 🙂

Shiraz (left) and Bleu

The both turned 15 years old this year. I will write about it on another blog.

我が家のブルシラこと、ブルーとシラズという2匹の猫を本当に可愛がってくれる友人へ充てた、バースデーカードのパッチワーク。モデルはブルさん。

丸顔でユーモアいっぱいの彼を狙ってみました。似てるかな?

Thank you for stopping by.

A piece of work of the day 35 ~ Love❤️Love❤️Love❤️

This was the card i made for my friend’s birthday back in June.

I brought some remaining wrapping papers or origami craft papers I collected, cut or hand cut them into small small pieces, then glued them randomly filling the inside of the heart template.Such a fun experimental work as it got.💕

友人のバースデーカードに、今年はパステルじゃなく、折り紙やラッピングペーパーを少しずつ取っておいたものでパッチワーク。

やりはじめたら愉しくて🎵

ハートがちょっとぷっくりし過ぎたかな😆

A piece of work of the day 34 ~ Dragon The Guardian Deity

I drew this dragon for someone who was born in the year of dragon and turned the birthday in June.

I found that there are several interpretations about this mythological creature, and I actually interpret it a guardian or spirit.

I hope year 2020 must bring lights and smiles at him despite that it’s been difficult year for most of us.

去る今年6月、とある方への誕生日カードにと描いたのは龍(ドラゴン)でした。普段描く機会の無い題材でしたが、辰年生まれの彼にとってはラッキーな神獣に違いないと思い、ドラゴンに初挑戦。

洋の東西それぞれにおいて、昔からこの架空の生き物は沢山の題材に使われてきました。

今回私も縁起の良いスピリットとして描きすすめ、終わってみたらとても神聖な気持ちになりました。

今年は誰にとっても難しい一年ですが、来年の誕生日迄、彼に光と笑顔が一つでも多くある事を祈っています。

Thank you for stopping by.

A piece of work of the day 33 ~Mermaid Magic ~

Mermaid Magic is the name of a blended essential oil produced by Kayse Williams, the co-founder of Sacred Alchemy Inc.

Kayse and I met in Tucson, Arizona in 2019 for the first time.  I visited her and her partner Gary Fleck seven months later in Arkansas, then shared another sweet time in Sedona last month.  Gary Fleck is (well, it’s not just me of knowing him so) the legendary crystal mining engineer who does crystal cut, polish, and make jewelries from the design.

Kayse produces number of blended essential oils aiming for healing and/or pleasure, all of which holds high frequency and struck me something when I first scented one of her range, named ‘Dolphin Joy’.

When I took Mermaid Magic on my hand first time and scented it, the world of the oil took me into so-called Kayse’s world, which was fantastic and warm, supporting, being embraced with love.  It was literally magic.

The scent was enough to urge me to express how I felt in pastel drawing.

A piece of work of the day 32

Festive period 2019 was something very unusual for me, because of the months-long bush fires that flamed up in Australia, particularly east coast and south area over the four states.

All graphics and updates cast by the media were of heartbreaking, and the blaze did not set back on New Years Eve and New Years Day.

Temperature on Saturday and Sunday last week soared to record-breaking high, which coincidentally some source was saying, apart from the subject of bush fires, that the earth took the closest position to the sun in her orbit.

This piece below was drawn while watching the circumstances, with the inspiration driven by my sincere wish of rainfalls and / or something good of element of aqua, embrace all of the burned areas and heal them.   Yep, the motif is completely unrelated to the subject, but this is how I could send my love over.

2019年のクリスマスと年越し、そして新年はこれまでのそれとは異なるものでした。

何か月も続く森林火災がまさに31日から元旦にかけて更に一段と被害が広がり、オーストラリア固有の動物や自然、そして幾つもの小さなコミュニティが燃えて無くなってしまいました。

このパステルは「水」と「悦び」に関するエネルギーを想いながらイメージしたものです。

一見、まったく森林火災とは無関係の絵柄ですが、今猛威を振っているその「火」とは違う水を想う事、そして悲しみや怒りに包まれている今の状況に、亡くなった命たちや対峙している命たちに、癒しの時が少しでもやってくるようにという願掛けの思いを込めました。

A piece of work of the day 31

Belated post for Christmas as it’s gone for the year, but I would still like to express my sincere thanks to all of your support and connections you have been with me on here.

Wish you all have a safe and pleasant holiday.

Here is my recent work for Seasonal greeting cards.

Christmas flower is lovely to see and draw.  I think I will draw it again for next Christmas (and I hope I will draw it lovelier).

クリスマスカード用に描いたポインセチア。

クリスマスを過ぎての投稿ですが、クリスマスの有無に関係なく、お一人おひとりの年末年始が安全で健やかにお迎えできますように、お祈りしています。今年もお世話になりました。

A piece of work of the day 30 ~ The Dawn of New Age~

When I had first listened to my friend’s work he composed, it got me an image that lights start shedding in total darkness.

Since then, the abstract image has been left in my head as making it transformed in changing details little by little.

I was going to draw the image earlier but, due to my months-long ‘constipation‘ period,  it finally happened just before year-end.

Silhouette of the bald eagle soaring was not in my imagination at first, but I am very happy now with the outcome in which it’s there .

Anyway, please check his work from here , and please share how you have felt or what you have got as an image with this piece.

元々は、ある知り合いのオリジナル曲を初めて聴いた時に湧いた、漆黒の中に光がさすという漠然としたイメージがはじまり。そこから徐々にイメージが形を変えていった。もっと早くに描きたかったのだけど、表現するという事を億劫がっているうちに今になってしまった。

シルエットになっている白頭ワシは最初の頃にはいなかった。いつのまにかすっとこのイメージの世界にいた。

原曲のリンクも貼りましたので、聴いてみてください。皆さんの中にもいろんなイメージが湧くのではないでしょうか。

A piece of work of the day 29 ~ abstract drawings inspired by the grid ~

Oh again, I do not remember when I did this kind of drawing work last time.

This went for a friend’s birthday.

And the grid I introduced here drove me my drawing finger as it gets (yes, my pastel works are drawn by fingers most of part), actually it went OK to express my love to him.

久しぶりのパステルワークを友人宛の誕生日カードに。どんなものを描こうかとすぐにイメージが湧きませんでしたが、こちらで紹介した今回の 石のグリッド から何となくヒントが得られて、このような一枚になりました。

私の友人への気持ちを色で表現したらこんな感じなのだと、出来上がって改めて思いました。

やはり色は楽しい。

Thank you for stopping by.

Slide show of paint arts

…made by nature, drawn over the vast canvas.

As it was an early morning, it made me feel i obsessed all these amazing artworks.

Sunrise, sunset

日の出の空。

まだ世の中は静かで、広大なキャンバスに展開されるアートを独り占めしている気分。

壮大で言葉も無く唯々見上げる。

Thank you for stopping by.

A driftwood ~ 流木 ~

…that’s laid on the beach i took a walk on the other morning. And

that inspired me more than just that.

It looks something living creature.

It may look even having a face that looks unhappy.

Where did you roll in from?

Now you are free from rough surf journey on the water.

Have a good rest.

Until you decide to roll off to the sea again.

Thank you for stopping by.
