Watercolor "Male Torso" original painting by Masako Simmons

Male Torso

My primarily work is surreal or abstract in acrylic, but I painted male torso this time in watercolor.  This is something new and I had painted a few more as a series.
This maybe my new direction for 2012.  Who knows…?
This painting “Male Torso” will be exhibited in the annual members exhibition for 2012.

Please come to the Opening Reception on Saturday, January 28, 3:00-5:30pm at The Charles H. Taylor Arts Center.  Free admission with a little refreshment. 🙂
I hope to see you there!

Watercolor painting "My Dream" by Masako

My Dream

It’s almost the end of January 2012 already.  I have many dreams, but I had truly beautiful dreams two days in a row so far in this month.  Just breathtaking view.  I wanted to try watercolor this time to paint my dream.  Something new for new year.

The one of dream was beautiful sunset or many sunrise… but all in a rainbow colors.  Ocean, sky, mountains, and even sun itself…

There can be no knowledge without emotion.  We may be aware of a truth, yet until we have felt its force, it is not ours.  To the cognition of the brain must be added the experience of the soul.  – Arnold Bennett
