Train

I can see train tracks from my window so decided to try to capture a passing train at night.

Birthday

Roberto has been sweet enough to send me this beautiful little painting for my birthday:
I am so happy he gave me the opportunity to experience his fine work in real life, every bit as amazing as in the internet! And knowing Roberto, there was also a thought provoking wisdom behind the painting: Life is a metaphor but still I do not know what it is about.

I have no clue what life is about except that right now it is great :-) Thank you, Roberto!

Wild

Flowers gone wild...


I was testing how watercolor paper would work with my ink painting. Unfortunately ink always looks quite dull on it when compared to 'rice paper', which shows magnificent shades and nuances. But the problem with rice paper is that painting gets crinkled and needs to be mounted on a stiffer backing paper, which is a very difficult process. Currently I am sending my work to China to be mounted but that is time consuming. There must be soneone in London who has mastered the traditional Asian wet mounting technique?

Urban

What could be more urban than graffiti. I can see this from my window. It is far away though so it might no look exactly like this... but similar... eh...
