Dear AnD, it's been a long, long while...

Dear AnD,Happy Howloween... I've been painting a lot since I was last here...I've donated a few to charities...This one's called "Hope Grows Love" and was auctioned off at a charity event...This is what it looks like in the dark...I've also painted a few after the Japan earthquake.  I wanted to create the feeling of "Hope".Here are a few words about them when they were up in Gallery Aryai on Melrose:Hope...

I've been inspired by recent events to paint "hope". This painting glows-in-the-dark. The colorless orbs represent those we've lost. They will always be with us as we continue to grow.

canvas + gesso + acrylic + h2o + brush + boy beater + jeans + glow


it's there

you can see it

even in the night

it shines

so bright

the human spirit

because I believe

you will always be

with me

life glows

life grows

there is


Been painting to the sound of my friend Katz from Yokoso News reporting the Japanese news in English on up of my little friend, the Koi fish.  He also glows at night...It was nice catching up with you!P.S.  I found a new friend in the kitchen.  I want to use him for soup...Run, Ginger Man, run...

I've never sold a painting before. I've only given them away as gifts and silent auction items for events and fundraisers.

I have a real hard time letting go of my art.

But it's time.

Time to move on. Time to let go so it can be special to someone else.

For the first time, I feel fulfilled and empty at the same time.

Yup, I'm sure this is how it'll feel when my kids leave for college. Sigh...

Thank you for giving them a good home. "Transformation" (Gold)  2008

10x10.  Acrylic/ink on canvas.

This was from a series I painted after finding out that a friend had decided to take his life.

I wanted to show life/hope coming out of darkness.

Dragonflies are symbolic of the life we live through that we can never teach someone else who hasn't gone through it themselves.

This piece was a part of San Diego Asian Film Festival's first annual art show in October 2008.

"Shoot That Poisoned Arrow Through My Heart" (Glow in the dark) 2007

4x6, 6x12.  Acrylic on canvas.  Featured in THE PEOPLE I'VE SLEPT WITH.

Don't just save a tree, grow one.

The joys of growing my own live Christmas tree...

Growing my own live Christmas tree to use for all the years to come.

I planted four spruce seeds on January 27th in the same pot. On February 7th, a tiny sprout began to peep out of the dirt. Yesterday I discovered a second sprout!

I wonder if the other two will grow?

Don't just save a tree,

grow one.
