Hey Everyone! It's been awhile since I last posted, but in case you have time, please do check out my Facebook page where I posted one of my latest projects :)

I love making paintings to be displayed, but at the end of the day, I want my paintings to be accessible to everybody, so I’ve decided to incorporate them into things that could be used in everyday life, one of them being fans.

Follow the link to my first completed project; my painting, entitled “Fresh Start” and the accompanying fan version and let me know what you think! ;)

My husband forwarded this link to me, said it reminded him of us 💗 Looking through it though, I realize that while my paintings look nothing like these, I would love for them to have the same feelings. Sharing the love! :)

今日、夫からこのリンクを送ってもらいました。私たちの事とにっているって。これを見ながら、一つを思い浮かぶのは私の描いている絵と全然違いますが、このような感じをみんなに伝いたってほしいという事です。どうぞご覧ください(^^)

My sketch of a barn owl. Thanks to a visit to the local zoo, I now know a bit more about owls and their eccentricities :)フクロウのデッサン。動物園に行ったおかげで、フクロウの特徴と姿勢前ほど分かってきた。(^^)

2015 Year of the Sheep by catherinejao
2015 Year of the Sheep
January 2015. Sumi on shikishi board.

Happy New Year everyone! I made this in honor of the Chinese Zodiac Sign for this year, which is the year of the sheep. I drew one white one and a smaller black one as a reminder to be at peace with whatever may come this year, both good and bad, and make it the best year yet ;) After all, the sheep is a sign of peace and tranquility right?

What are the new things coming for you this year?
