Long time no see!
I know, I know, it's been ages since my last post, we're already halfway into February, man time flies! I've been busy, busy, I did some traveling over the holidays and when I came back I had a lovely commission piece with a very tight deadline waiting for me.
“Once in a life time”, a moment that will never be repeated again... we learned to enjoy each moment in Japan, every travel, every experience, every special person...everything is unique in its existence and all these moments will never repeat again.
This artwork contains our passion, our faith, our work, our precious moments so far and all we love so much in Japan! This is not only a piece of art! It is a memory to which we will look until we are old, and it will bring us back in time to all these moments again!

I am enjoying both pieces as I have one piece in my office (Take 5) and one piece at home (Royal Ride). It does evoke a certain contemplative feeling when I am sitting and looking at it over the dinner table at home. The history combined with the buzz of activity is very soothing as a medium.

The impact of ‘Summer Stroll’ on the space has been very positive. It is hanging in a prominent space in our front entrance, which needed a strong and attractive piece of art since day 1. The response from those who have seen it has been all positive, with most questions related to how the work was actually done (is it a painting, a photograph? etc…) and where we got it.
Our favorite details of ‘Summer Stroll’ are: 1. The subject matter itself. Paris is a favorite destination of ours so it’s nice to have a work so immediately evocative of nice memories. 2. The way the piece compliments other works we have in our home, all of which are graphically interesting and inspire conversation. And 3. the carefully placed additions of red amidst the black and white imagery. Not that b&w alone would have been uninteresting, but the red really adds dramatic impact.
