This time I challenged my self a new media called wood engraving. Of course, I draw the image with some pens and then transferred the image onto the block. Wood is quite different from Lino block. But I can play more with lines compared with the Lino. I am a baby printmaker and learning a lot of things from each cutting. But for me hardest process is printing. I do not think that I chose the right paper yet.
I forgot to flip again….

I have not posted for a while. Not only that, I have not painted for a while. I was in a break from everything. I read, cooked, water and fed a lot of plants and flowers. Now I am gradually back to my old self. This is a small ink drawing for my Lino print. Printmaking is not my thing so that it was a quite fun.
I totally forgot about flipping the image…. I am learning!

Spoleto is getting closer to open. I was so busy and not ready for it yet. But time does not stop for me. Today is the first day this year I can start working for my preparation. OK …I am finally ready to tackle with all works I need to take care of….
I had a great news from Charleston Living Magazine. They pick my painting for the cover image. Since I did not expect anything for this submission, I totally forgot about this. It was a big surprise! How cool is it? I am ecstatic!
The Spring semester is over….Today…It’s officially Summer! Yapeeee!!!

Some artist paint a circle and create very interesting image. I can not figure it out what makes some image interesting and some are not. Most likely those artists have sensitive observational skills and ability to communicate their inner core of their understandings. I am very envious toward the Artis who can keep creating the art works and evolving themselves.

I found the Assam tea a couple days ago. I have not seen this kind around here so I was very exited and purchased it. It is very strong and smooth..goes so well with cream and sugar. My mother loved this strong tea and I remembered talking about the different kind of teas with her. I am going to bake some scorns or cookies this afternoon and enjoy this flavorful tea with childhood memory.

I love to go somewhere. I do not know where. It can be Canada I think. I have never been there so I feel some mystery. It also can be South America. But it might be dangerous. So let’s close out there. I do not like small island, therefore slightly larger one like Ireland? I am having a cup of Scottish breakfast tea in the early early morning and dreaming about my vacation which will be fun. But my reality is that new semester will start this coming Monday and need to get busy.
