Glass with a Sea Conch Still Life Painting

Here's one of the first oil painting I attempted. It's a simple still life of some glass objects and sea conch. I'm surprised it turned out alright as I had no idea what I am doing. However, the mystery of translucent objects has evaded my hand in this painting. I hope to attempt this some … Continue reading Glass with a Sea Conch Still Life Painting

Stone Wall in the Garden, Digital Painting

I did this digital painting of a stone wall in the garden a while back as an assignment for landscape course. It was an interesting experience as I never tried to paint a "cutout" of the world before. It almost feels like this scene should be a part of a game, and I love it. … Continue reading Stone Wall in the Garden, Digital Painting

Wave of Calm over Chaos, abstract painting

This abstract painting hides the idea of calmness taking over chaos. The perfect blue consumes the chaos of life, turning it into peaceful emptiness. From the other point of view, the blue wave could be creating chaos. In any case, this is the relationship of calmness and chaos. There is no one without the other; … Continue reading Wave of Calm over Chaos, abstract painting

Mountain Flats – Landscape Oil Study

This time I was watching TV show called Lucifer, and I ended up drawing a portrait of detective Chloe.

Forest Guardian – Polymer Clay Sculpture

It may grow back, but does it have to be this way? This work began during the raging fires in California and Australia, and then the pandemic hit. The creature represents all of these events. Deep wounds take time to heal, but there's a glimpse of hope symbolized by the crystals on Forest Guardian's body. … Continue reading Forest Guardian – Polymer Clay Sculpture
