Please give any feed back on these paintings if you like. Thank you.
I like to take still life photographs as well as painting still life in more arty way.


  1. Congratulations on your sale! I love the different shades of brown in these works. The warm color and the subject (art & office supplies) feels comforting to me.

  2. Hi Tomoe, yes they are even more beautiful facing me on my piano as I play music. Thank you for sharing your gift, grateful to introduce your work as I can. Note, 'Book on Board' besides the play on words, a pencil with eraser at both ends...Your humour is appreciated..Keep up the excellence. Wishing you continued success, keep in contact.

  3. Thank you Dabbie and Roxanne,

    Actually I started painting after 30 whatever age. And I painted these when I was taking 2nd year painting class in fine art major. At that time, I was taking online class, and I did not even know how to achieve paint brush application, just I was learning from my teacher, class and my own struggle, so I am very happy to have the feedback and actually sold these.

    Note: I think what Roxanne mentioned about pencil and eraser on board, what it looks like an eraser, is actually a bar code tag on the board that I used for another painting.
    (does not really matter what though. lol)

    And another humor on this was that the book was about a trick art written by an illustrator, artist, Shigeo Fukuda (1932-2009)

    and I choose the book to utilized for my exercise for the tick art like a book on a board on an actual board (that I painted on). It is hard to tell by a web image, but Roxanne know what I mean by seeing actual painting. lol.

    Here is the actual book cover I painted from.
    Please check on this amazon book site. Thank you.

  4. Still life is a pleasure. Your work is very beautiful. The colors you have chosen make your work come alive. I feel peaceful looking at your work.
    Thanks for Following my blog! Maybe we can work together in finding new ways to help Japan.

  5. Thank you Rose,
    These works I have done on 2007, before even I know how to paint on canvas. I started painting after 30 something, and it was tough learning if I did not have a childhood experience. These I painted directly on wood, but to think back at the time, I feel easier than painting on canvas, which painting on any cloth absorb paint and need more and more layers.
    I still like to paint still life. I think it is my main theme in painting, and even photography.

    Yes, pretty soon, I will put up my "call" blog page, and post on IUOMA too! Thank you for your help. I wish I could go Tohoku, but I don't have money to go there and nor energy to do labor work.


Please write feedback on my blog. Thanx. (^_^)
