SNOW.

ゆきやこんこんだった昨日のNY。
ってゆかどかーっと降って、朝起きたらBrooklynは雪に埋まってるみたいだった。
だから二度寝。
こたつで寝ているだろう実家の猫の気持ちがよくわかる。

寒いのは嫌だけど、雪の日はすき。

外がとても静かだし、月も光も全部凍ってるみたいだから。
あったかい部屋で音楽を聴きながら外の寒さを想像するのがすき。


そういうときにいつもおもいだすのは白馬の雪。

スノボをやめて5年くらい経つけど、毎日すべりに行ってたあの頃を考えると今でもウズウズしちゃう。

Experiment 3. (Vague)


He has brown skin color,but I wanted to express without brown.And I reduced range of color.
This painting's theme is "Vague".

前回は”できるだけ筆を使わない”という意向で描いたのだけど、今回は”曖昧さ”を表現しようと試みた。彼は茶色い肌を持ってるけど白ベースだったらどうなるのかな、という感じ。
色彩の幅も減らしてみて、使った絵の具は5種類くらい。
わたしはあまり満足してないので描き足す方向なんだけど、Peterが最高!と言うので一段落、写真に撮った。

自分の価値観の中だけで生きてると、一生満足する絵なんて描けないよなあとおもいつつ。
もし満足する絵が描けてしまったら、絵描きを廃業するとおもう:P

Holiday!

おもうように制作が進まない今日この頃。。。
それでも時間は当たり前のように進んで行く。
気がついたらHoliday Seasonが始まってた。

Thanks Giving DayはDJ MIHOKOさんのおうちでごはん。

ジャマイカンスタイルのディナーをごちそうになった。
今日のベストショット!ShingoちゃんとYune。

ところで親友のMACOがBlogを始めたそうです。
Shingoちゃんも始めてるし。彼のBlogは情報満載!おもしろいです。
最近色んなひとがBlogを始めてて、みんなどうしたんだ一体!?というかんじ。
わたしも更新しなきゃ。

絵が2枚あがったので、乾いたらUPします。
Have a good holiday!!

Experiment 2.

I had met him at my friend's farewell party.
He is Italian,nice guy,looked different from everything...

How can I say... I got strange impression from him. And I asked him to paint his face.
We had a conversation few minutes,and I think he left from that party.
Unfortunately I forgot his name,and he wasn't my friend's friend.
It's mean there are no connection between him and me. If I look for him very hard,I might find but I don't wanna do it now. I have only one photo of him. That's it. I know about him only few things.. I don't know he still stays NY or went to Milano. I don't care somehow.

Don't u think it's funny the fact "A painter paint and strain a stranger guy"????

It was first experience to be attracted by people as a model.
Anyway I'm still painting him and thinking about him.

In this painting,I used only painting knife as much I can.

I'll write this story in Japanese later...
My experiment hasn't finished still now.

Experiment 1.


It was first time to paint like this....
I haven't satisfied,No! I think this painting is sucks! What a hell! OMG!
But I'm doing this kind of experiment now.

こいう感じで描いたのは始めてのこと。
全然満足してないけど。てゆかこの絵は最低。ありえない!捨てたい!
でも今はこういう実験をしてるのです、ハカセ。

BTW,U will see this man again.
I have decided to paint him 5 more...
About the story with him,I'll write next time:)

ところで、この男の子はまた登場します。
彼をあと5枚くらい描こうとおもってる。
彼との出会いの話は、また今度…。

Practices.




I'm practecing "life painting" nowadayz...
I hadn't done it for a long time but,I decided to do it for my skills.

I hated to practice this kind of things and realistic paintings when I was an art school student.
But it's really important to be a "real artist" even if I'm an abstract painter.
I felt like to try practicing of basic before I do something in NY.

The fact I could realized it will be big effects for my life-works. I believe it.
If I couldn't,I supposed to be just stupid young artist,I mean I don't wanna be that.
That's it.

By the way,"life painting"is not so bad.
I'm enjoying:)

最近はデッサンをしてる。
だいぶ長い間してなかったけど、自分のスキルを磨くためにやることにした。

こういう練習、修練というもの、写実が大学時代大っきらいだった。
もしわたしが抽象画家だったとしても、デッサンは大事。
基礎を学ぶことを世の中に自分の絵を出す前に試したかった。

これに気づけたという事実は、わたしの今後に影響するんだとおもう。たぶんね。
もしできてなかったら、ただのバカな若いペインターになってたとおもうし、それになりたくなかったから気づけたのかもしれない。それだけのこと。

ところでデッサンはそんなに悪くない。
楽しんじゃってるんだな、これが。

Earthquake!?

When I found a news"Big earthquake in my hometown",my hand was shaking...
I suspected about my family and my friends.

But everyone were fine and they evacuated safely.....:)
And also my cat evacuated:D

Somehow,it made me anxious,really.

I hope nothing to happen to my lovely hometown!

地元静岡に大きな地震があったというニュースをみつけたとき、わたしの手は震えた。
みんな死んじゃったのかもしれない、どうしようって。

ほとんどのわたしの大切なひとは静岡に住んでる。
わたしはひとりになる感覚をリアルに、初めて知った。

でもみんな無事:)
猫もちゃんと避難したんだって:D よかったあ。

それでも地元にそんなことが起こったら、って考えることはわたしを不安にさせる。

いつまでも平和なわたしの地元であってほしいなあ。

Dia:Beacon.

From Grand Central station,I went to Dia:Beacon by Metro North.
Dia:Beacon is a contenporary art museum (1960 to present) which opened in 2003.






In a huuuuuuuuuuuge space,a lot of artworks!!!!!


Huuuuuuuuuuuuge Andy Warhol!!!


This artwork is Sol LeWitt's drawing series.
When I entered his space,I impressed. And also I couldn't move...
His artworks are really far from mine,that's why it makes me amazing:D


Took a rest in a cafe:) And we rembled Beacon's Main street!




It's calm,peace,and sweet small city.

I strongly recommend to visit Dia:Beacon!
I think all artists yean to exhibit like this. I felt space is obviously important for art.

Totally different to NYC. But after I came back to Brooklyn,I felt so comfortable:P
I love NYC:)

Daruma doll.


My friend gave me "Daruma" for my boyfriend and me.

"Daruma doll" is Japanese wish dolls with no arm or leg.
Using black ink, one fills in a single circular eye while thinking of a wish. Should the wish later come true, the second eye is filled in.

Anyway,she gave us for "Our relationship".
So we filled in right eyes in remembrance of our 1 month:)
Left eyes gonna be filled if we could together for 1 year.

I don't know about future but... I hope so.

Lovely dayz.

My friend came 2 NY from Japan!
She is one of my best friend since when we were art students...

友達が日本から遊びに来た。
彼女は日芸時代からの大親友。



Talk!Talk!Talk!!!!! Eat!Eat!!Eat!!!!!!!
I talked myself hoarse...:P
And gained weight...:(

とにかく喋る、喋る、喋る。食べる、食べる、食べる!
わたしは喋りすぎて声がかれた。。。
そして体重も増えた。。。


We hanged out a lot with my friends and my boyfriend.
It was toooooo fun!!!!
みんなでクラブに行ったり、パーチー行ったり、コンサート見たり、観光したり、松井観にいったり、ごはん食べに行ったり。
楽しかったなあ。
いつも笑ってたような気がする。

Time past very fast...
When she left NY,I wasn't able to endure this sadness...
あっという間に時間は過ぎて、
彼女を空港まで見送るとき、その寂しさに耐えられなかった。
だから彼についてきてもらったのだ。

でも笑顔で見送れた、はず。
涙で滲むAir Trainからの景色。


See ya in Japan.
また日本で会おうね!!!
