A Tree Trunk


Yesterday, the sun showed up a little bit so I went for a short walk. Along the way, I saw lots of leaves of beautiful colors and some types of mushrooms scattered on the ground. What a wonderful day, I said to myself. I felt very thankful that I could still experience and enjoy such nature's beauty. About this tree trunk, I doodled it months ago while trying my  new purchased watercolor paper. 

 May you all have happy days ahead.

Just felt I wanted to blog today


I have no new painting to post so I chose this one from my recent file. Do these flowers look cherry blossoms? I was thinking of cherry blossoms when I was doing this sketch. 
Hoping that you are all safe and healthy.

More gouache tries

I'm beginning to like gouache paints. They are somewhat opaque watercolors and they can be used like acrylic. 

I wish you all a meaningful week.

Gouache paints: coneflowers sketch


I became curious about gouache after watching a demo from youtube. I tried it yesterday and it's interesting. I think I want to know more how it is used. What I got yesterday was this coneflowers sketch.

In life, sometimes there will be a situation that will make us stop from doing what we want to do. For me, when I'm not painting that means I have something more important to attend to. That happened since three weeks ago.

Water Lilies


I stopped working on this painting and left it in a corner so that I'll see which part needs more improvement. I hope you are all doing well.

Warm up sketch

Before I work on a painting, usually I do first a small sketch as a warm up exercise.
This rose sketch is from last year.

Five Roses

I have not been painting for a couple of weeks now because there are other matters that I have to attend to. This painting is from my collection of 6x4 inches paintings which we use as greeting cards. I hope all of you are doing well.

Sunflower and the blue sky

I painted this sunflower two weeks ago with acrylic paints. Since the weather today is very sunny with a clear blue sky, I thought it would be fine to post it now. Wishing every one a wonderful and peaceful week.
