This is my third time to paint dandelion. Both yellow flower and dandelion down are very attractive and friendly for me, also this flower reminds me of my childhood. I found very interesting myth about dandelion. Dandelion down reveals how much your lover is thinking of you, the more you are being thought of. How romantic is it?

I participate 22nd Anual the Cathedral Art Festival at Van Vost Church in Jersey City on Saturday, November 12. Unfortunately, I can't go to Champaign Gala night because I will be in Japan at the time.

Here is a portrait painting. The request is a guy driving Japanese transportation company car with the setting in Hiroshima.
When people saw this painting, first reaction is "why Pink road" with big smile. Why Pink? Because I want to make people smile!

I painted two cars and one truck recently, and I found out myself that painting automobile is kind of fun.

Epic Oregon

Map of Oregon based on my Summer trip. Here is my first map illustration! It took me a long time to finish, but it was so fun. I want to try another map. Where I should choose? Maybe, Kyoto and Nara where I plan to visit in this autumn. It sounds good that I travel somewhere with my original map! If someone plan to Oregon, I can share the map ;-))

I was asked to paint one work for my friend's father in law as a birthday present a month ago. This is NOT the one. She sent me many his and his wife's photos as a reference, and I made a extra one as a gift from me. Hope my friend like it.

I like 1970s samsonite suitcase. I love their color a lot. My dad had the one, but my mom throw it away long time ago. I should have asked my mom to keep it, so I could use it for something..like keeping my painting! I haven't been back to Japan two years and a half. I miss my family, friend, food, and Onsen...
