To keep up with my sanity in between this hectic interstate move I kept some of my pencils and a small pastelbord with me hoping I will have to do one small piece before I leave the evergreen state. I picked my favorite subjects of silver and Pears and completed this piece today, its 8×10 on tan pastelbord. It’s all color pencils since I packed up my neocolors. One more week before we begin our trip down south.
I haven’t been active so much lately with my work for a reason. We are moving to California in two weeks!!! I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all my friends, my Seattle CPSA group for their incredible support, Kaewyn gallery, Semantics Gallery & Cole Gallery for providing wonderful opportunities, my dear friends at Kirkland arts center , my clients and collectors and to everyone who made my life wonderful here in the pacific northwest! Thanks so much ! wish me luck!

One of the things I really like about wordpress is the year end report that they send me on Dec 31st. Even though I am not a very active blogger the stats makes me feel pretty good So I’d like to share a few thing here -
“The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 13,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
Where did they all come from? 96 countries in all! “
Thanks to all of my supporters, artist friends, galleries, friends and family for their continuing support. Here’s to an inspiring 2014!! Happy new year to everyone
I had a wonderful time doing a demo over the weekend at the Cole Gallery’s 7th anniversary. I started on this piece and I just finished working on it.
I actually wanted to make a complicated Origami star using a shiny golden paper but halfway through messed up the model. So the frustration led to cutting up the paper and once I saw the curly strip just lying there everything felt right. So my love for shiny stuff continues in this paper series in which I will be exploring the dynamics of shiny colored paper in space.
