I am dreaming myself being in a cabin in the middle of the snow-covered wildness. All roads are closed and nobody can come near my cabin. Enough food, tea, books and paints will be my only friends. No TV nor Wi-fi, just books and pains….and my cats. How wonderful it will be….. At least I am going to make a cup of tea now.

Finally autumn is here. Every year when the fall festival comes, the cold weather comes with it. Children start wearing their colorful coats and add the vibrant colors in the neighborhood. Oh…yes…Soup season, too.

It was a long hot summer. I usually like summer, but not this year. Finally I felt fall today. I feel good. I am ready to play with colors again.

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!!!
