Virginia Artists 2014 Juried Exhibition

This was a really nice surprise. Not only one of my paintings was accepted for the juried exhibition, but also it was on a newspaper!

This cat bat came into my dream and stuck in my mind for sometime. So I had to let it out. This process always amazes me. I don’t know where these images come from, and I just let them out. Once I let them out, they start living their own lives.

Off the Wall at Norfolk Collegiate School – January 25-30. 2013

Off the Wall show went well despite the fact it was a crazy weather.  I couldn’t even make it to the opening. But turned out, one of my painting was sold from that show. I am so grateful.

It was an awesome night! Great food, great friends, great music, and great art!

Stacy Whiting, Ayano Gibson, and me, Masako got together with a musician, Otis. We talked, had some food and drinks, dance with the music.

On top of that, my new patron bought three of my paintings that day! What a wonderful night that was.

When I paint something, I always feel that there is someone who is searching for this painting. 🙂
