Happy New Year - Mimi & Little Red Bird

It's final countdown after a couple of hours... another year is coming... During the moment, I would like to share with you the main roles of my blog - Mimi & Little Red Bird, hope you would love these!! I selected twelve of the paintings from my 'Friendship' drawing & painting series to make an end of this wonderful year. The original artworks are drawn by charcoal pencil and painted by gouache on a kind of handmade Chinese painting paper. I love the rough and imperfect surfaces... and the strokes match well with the paper unexpectedly. Enjoy... Happy New Year!!

2011 Calendar - Lovely Birds

I love sunny days, especially the light rays through the windows... really wonderful moment!

Year end is just around us... I had something in mind to design and made my own 2011 Calendar. I selected six of the drawings from my 'Lovely Birds' drawing & painting series to make this calendar. The original artwork are charcoal pencil drawings on extra light Chinese painting paper. I love rough texture and natural materials... the combinations always make unexpected result. I purposely made these unbound as individual sheets... when trimmed, the prints are framable. Can be made a new decoration!!

Winter Sonata

Sleeping Beauty

These are all one of a kind original artwork painted on stones. These stones are hand picked from the river, and painted with gouache color and surface finished by aerosol lacquer. Good to use as paperweight and decoration as well. The 'Winter Sonata' and 'Sleeping Beauty' are inspired my 'Ca't' & 'Little Red Bird drawing & painting series. The 'Hopefulness' is an old artwork done by 2002, inspired by my 'Fish' drawing & painting series. This series is much more like abstract art. Every stones have their own different stories.

Story Behind The Creation

Mimi was my cat, spending years of companionship with me during my childhood. She was a beautiful cat with tiger-colored hair. From my original art & painting 'Cat' series, 'Mimi' was featured in white color mostly. During the creation process, I found lots of wonderful ideas with the role but Mimi seems lonely. While I'm doing my creation, looking out of the windows from my home studio there're lots of beautiful birds around the star fruit tree, and I adore the tiny red bird. One day, in my mind: the little red bird could be a part of the creation accompany with Mimi. Mimi will never alone. The story begins, and will going on and on...
