Paul & Chase

No, I'm not painting for Chase bank. I'm currently working on three paintings and two of them; "Paul" and "Chase" are almost done. My friend and my sister have ordered as Christmas gift for their friend and family.

My friend C wants "Paul" that goes well with her friend's little boy's room which is {Star Wars} bedding from Pottery Barn Kids. I have done a good job so far and I hope they'll like it.

Now, my sister wanted me to paint something for her brother in law's (her husband's younger brother) newborn "Chase" for Christmas gift. The color request was "green" and "yellow" and something that look like the bedding from Pottery Barn Kids. She wanted me to draw Turtle instead of little chicks or sheeps.

I will post the final product photos when I'm done paiting which will take another three days. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on it!

Back Up Back Up

Some of you may wonder what's this monkey's all about. This is exactly how I felt or looked when my laptop crushed over the weekend. So far, my husband was able to find files to all the pictures of our daughters. Thank goodness.

One of the most devastating things was that I had saved many photos for my artwork ideas and they are gone. I'm tryng to find it, but so far, no luck. I'm still optimistic and secretly hoping that it'll pop up, but I'm not so sure...
This is why people alwaus say, "You need to buck up the files." Oh I know, I know... I was so going to do that, it's just I didn't get around to it before it happened.
Oh, what's going to happen to the music I purchased on iTunes???? I don't even want to think about it.
Hope you had a lovely weekend...

I constantly try to find the ideas for my paintings and artwork. I grew up surrounded by two professional photographers; my grandpa and my dad. So, watching them taking beautiful pictures had shaped who I am. Yes, I love photography.

A photo can tell a million stories. And it's so magical.

I've seen so many beautiful photography throughout my life and there are many amazing photographers for whom I adore. One of my favorite photographers is Anne Leibovitz. She is so popular that I'm sure most of you've seen her work at least once somewhere in the magazines.

I'm an Anne Leibovitz fan because she's taken the world of photography to the limit and created a world of her own that many of us had never seen before. I always grab the issue of Vanity Fair when it features Hollywood stars that are shot by Anne.

Her photography is a total creation of photography and fantasy - it's just amazingly beautiful. I wonder what it's like to be in front of her camera...

And another photographer I adomire is Herb Ritts(1952 - 2002), a fashion photographer who had shot so many Hollywood celebrities including Madonna. He shot iconic photographs in black and white - his work was simple and yet powerful. I love his photography.

One of my all tme favorite music videos is Janet Jackson's "Love Will Never Do" directed by Herb Ritts. He was truly a talented artist. I'm sure you've seen it before. It's the best and the sexiest video ever. Beautiful song = Beautiful video. BTW, Antonio Sabato Jr. was freaking HOT!

One Step Closer....

I still can't believe my business website is finally up and running. It's a tremendous relief because I've worked so hard to create a beautiful site that everyone can love...

But this is not the end - it's just the beginning of my endless possibilities. I'm still nervous and scared about my new adventure. I'm seriously nervous about it.

I've always loved painting and loved art. But I've never thought I would choose it as my full time job. I think though, it's one of the things that can make me the happiest. It calms me down after all the craziness from everyday life..

I have a part time job and I am a mother of two girls and a wife. So, I don't have a lot of time to work on the paitings. I do paint after the girls go to bed, so when it's quiet which is truly a therapeutic experience. My goal is to quit my part time job by the end of January next year, so that I can focus on my true dream - paiting and becoming a great artist....

This is a blog about my life as an artist, a mother, a wife and a dreamer. I will try to post as much as I can and I hope you cheer me on through my blog. Thank you so much for being part of my life...
