A piece of work of the day 23

Phoenix.

I had had drawn a Phoenix on a card for someone, and it turned out to be the beginning of some journey of exploring expression.

This is my 2nd Phoenix. I will come back time by time for my further try for imaginations and expression.

In short, I am very pleased to have made a time for a bit of art side.

Thank you for stopping by.

My first pastel workshop in Japan

So this is one reasons why I kind of gave up carrying my DSLR and tripod with me.  🙂 One of my plans to accomplish during this trip was to do a pastel workshop for whose who had expressed interests to me since last year.

Due to the pastel drawing needs a suite of tools to do, despite the method was to use your finger(s) and rub them over the paper, it is apt to be rather bulky to carry by yourself unless you drive.

The workshop was made successful.  The participants who had never done this before, expressed their beautiful souls onto a piece of square paper to the full extent.  It is hard to tell you of how thrilling time I had with them as watching (and guiding) the whole process of the unique beautiful artwork was born out.  Japan, which has turned to rainy season, have got Hydrangea in full bloom, and I suggested them to draw Hydrangea.  Their touch and expression demonstrated during the work gave me inspiration and motivation.  🙂

I personally interpret this drawing process is quite similar to that you are meditating, which it may make you feel quite refreshing.  I am so glad that I shared those aspects with them.

Thank you beautiful souls for having me share this time with you.

A piece of work of the day 17

This is my latest ‘a piece of work of the day’ which hasn’t been done in a while.

There is no title, or, I’d name it ‘Mind mirroring’.

I have been a bit suffering from my psoriasis that had been reacting so hard on my both hands since this year.  I could not find what prompted me to get, but my hands got totally ugly in look, depressed me in heart, burned me in feel as they were inflammatory, hysterically (yes it is!) itchy, easy to break, and I could not sleep well.

I know it was only excuse but that kept me away from drawing because I could not focus on drawing enough and my epidermis became extremely thin and fragile once I got such a reaction.  I was suffering from manipulating my fingers to do something with.

Anyway, so my hands needed intensive care and I had to have observing myself in the closest manner.  And it actually inspired me to draw something like below for the first time.

I am very good at driving my delusion to expand, and it urged me to express something like ‘hands are mirroring your mind’ kind of things more or less.

I had rarely drawn hand(s), especially with pastels, and I was not done well this time hence, but I found it fun to do somehow and it is now added to my ‘to draw’ list for more try.  🙂

A piece of work of the day 16

The drawing work for the second piece has been done, and my impulse eagerness for drawing works to be done is settling down for now.  Well, this is sequel blog from the previous one.  🙂

It was a bit experimental work to be done for me, but I find that the work has a hint of frangipani behind the colouring, likely because frangipani flowers that I have with me which I had taken some of them seen as fallen on the ground.

And I made a face with all of the pieces placed beside me while I was working. 🙂
