The costume ball. 舞踏会

I attended the Grand Paradise Lost Costume Ball and the opening reception celebrating John Milton's 400th birthday at the Williamsburg Art & Historical Center, September 27th. There was dance performances, live music with swing band and singer, and more. I really enjoyed everything as I've never attended this kind of the ball. I'm showing some pictures here. My sculpture, titled "Demon", is in the exhibition. It's a great show. Don't miss it! It'll be until November 2nd (Sun). Click For more information

Scissors & Bobbin

I've been working on this etching since July 1st. Finally I'm printing out a limited edition now. I printed about 18 prints so far but I'm not satisfied with some of them. Printing by hand is not like a copy machine. It's difficult to make the same print every time. So I'll make more prints.

Three Musketeers?(三銃士?)

Aran is my friend of mine. His appearance is like Three Musketeers. I wanted to make his sculpture. So I asked him to sit for me about four years ago. At that time, I promised him create a copy. I made the busts with two different patina. A dark one is for him. Finally he picked it up last night. He changed his hair style but it's the same mustache. I took a souvenir picture for him with his busts.

The Reception of the Black & White Exhibition

I had a reception of the Annual Black and White Exhibition at Salmgundi Club last Thursday. I had two lithographs that were accepted.
I was glad to hear that people love "Kissing The Universe" in the gallery. Because it's unusual and fun to see what they said.
I've been busy dropping off and picking up my artworks at the galleries recently. That's why I couldn't post anything.
Here is
the list of the upcoming Exhibitions. Everybody is welcome at the receptions!

Back to work...

I took a rest and continued painting this piece today. There is some white cloth behind lemon but I think it doesn't need it.
