"Blue Rhapsody "

6"x8", oil on canvas board

 I did a painting of roses against blue back ground today. Without any artificial, spot lighting, only natural light through the window behind me. I wanted the background 'Blue' stays 'Blue' without getting affected by the color of artificial light.
The controlling value and color temperature of Red oil paint is so tricky, since they are transparent. Especially when you paint such a beautiful roses.... Ahhhhh!!!

"Zen Moment"

6"x6", oil on canvas panel

This is Korean stoneware tea cup. The milky green color of these tea cups is very unique with Korean ceramics. An interesting contrast of subdued green and subdued red in this painting is creating a 'Zen' moment.
