Yesterday I was fascinated by the colors of the evening sky. Actually I wanted to paint a sunset, but I had another idea. I will do 2 paintings one called "Sunrise" and one "Moonrise", so here is the first one... "Sunrise".

Done with acrylics, ink, watercolor and airbrush on paper. Format is B4

Original will be available, when the 2 paintings are done.

Mushroom art part 2

This is for Nakamura-san. I hope you have a great mushroom-hunt today in Hakodate. There are maybe some Akahatsu, even Hanaiguchi out now. Good luck !!!
Here are some more mushroom paintings from the exhibition... my fave one is Tamagotake, which I posted in my Blog before.

I also
like Birch Boletus (Birkenpilz in German),
which tastes delicious with Salmon-creampasta...
(Herbstlorchel). It may look weird, but it tastes great with Vongole Bianco.
All paintings are done with acrylics, watercolor, pens and airbrush on paper... Format B4 originals available.

We did not have much rain in the last days, so there is still not the right time for mushrooms. But I decided to upload some of the mushroom paintings I did for the science-festival in August.
Done with acrylics, watercolor, airbrush and pens on paper.
Format is B4, originals are available.

Hiking at Esan 恵山

Today, the weather was very clear and so we decided to hike to the top of Esan, which is a still active Volcano near Hakodate. It was a 6km hike (all in all), but totally worth it. The sight was amazing. When we reached the top, we could see Aomori on one side and Yote-san and Muroran on the other side. I'm especailly proud of my kids, that they climbed the whole path without complaining and enjoyed the sight and nature the same way, we did.

Silver week

"Silver week" has started over here and we decided to drive to our fave beach and do some fishing. Unfortunately, we had no luck at all... some small Fugu stole all of our bait, but the kids enjoyed to play in the sand.

So we decided to drive in the mountains for some mushrooms and maybe Elderberries, but no luck as well... we only spotted a beautiful, but also the most deadly plant, there is, "Torikabuto"


Well, since we did not catch anything I decided to take matters into my own hands and we went to

the farmers and bought some

delicious and fresh vegetables.

Just could not resist to cook some tasty dishes for my loved ones... tomorrow we will take revenge and go for the fish again :D

Exhibition in Germany

Today the Japanese/Korean exhibition in Germany (Wiesbaden and Hofheim) will start. Unfortunatelly I can not go there personally, but I will take part with one painting. For further information, please click on this picture
Here is the painting I sent there.
I called it "Rebirth". After my Mom died, I felt very sad, but she always encouraged me to paint and so I feel her spirit lives on in my art. Also painting after the loss helped me a lot to overcome my sadness and pain.

Hiking at the mountains

Today we went hiking in the mountains near Hakodate. The view was beautiful and there is still some Gentian up there.

On our way back we picked a lot of Cranberries (Kokemomo). Later I will make jam and cook a traditional German dinner with it.

Bamboo 4

I repainted the Bamboo-picture this week, because I felt, I can add more details by using watercolor and pens together with acrylics. I also added some more light effects with airbrush.
It was quite hard, but now I'm finally pleased with the result.

I wanted to paint some Himawari (Sunflowers) I saw during our vacation back in August. I used a foto as a reference, but I played with the colors and painted a much more "autumnlike" and "soft" sky.
Done with acrylics, watercolor and airbrush on paper... format is B4, original available.

Still catching up

Actually I wanted to paint a lot this week, but I'm still catching up with other things... Soon I will take part in an exhibition in Germany, not personally though, but I will submit a painting there. Since it is close to my hometown, I'm busy telling all my friends and relatives who live close about it. I will also write about it in my blog later.

In the meantime I will upload some old art from 2008 here.
Pictures 1 (dragonfly) and 2 (momiji3) are available, picture 3 ("Autumnleaves2") is sold.
