Hi Bye February!

It’s been a month of painting nonstop for me and it’s a fun process as always, with some pain and gain in the end. The pain is just a bit of stress and self-critique however the gain is self-growth acknowledgement from myself, which is rewarding. Learning to appreciate your own hard work is easier said than done, trust me. 

The month is moving fast, tomorrow will be the last day of February. I’ve finished an application to join an art fair in July. It will be both online and in person short of exhibition. There’s still a lot of work to do until July but I’m excited about it. No more stress about administration work, it’s gonna be painting and painting and painting!!!

 I have found an app that helps with creating images of your paintings in display. I don’t want to do anything like promoting it here because it is a paid app, however if you want to know what it is, let me know! Here is the fun I have had with this app.

What painting would you have in your kitchen?

It could be a Zen corner

Orange charm

Love and Light

Oh one more thing! I have added more stuff on my TikTok account. It was a “mom and daughter” thing with my daughter Bonni but now it’s become another playground in my art journey. If you happen to be on TikTok, and also love to create with painting, sculpting, wood carving, etc., let me know, we’ll do “follow me and I’ll follow you back”. Happy creating! Hi bye February!


Ranchlands in Fall 2022

Dear Friends,

It’s Holiday season and I’d like to take this chance to send you my warmest regards. 

It’s been over 3 years since I arrived in this Ranchlands community, in Canada. Looking back it seems much longer than that to me, probably to most of us since the pandemic. However this summer was the best summer I’ve had as I got to go outside more and experienced my first time painting outdoors. Then the most colourful season comes. Fall in Canada is wonderful, a feast of colours to the eyes. Everytime I could be outside at the park, Bowmont park, Ranchlands park… or even just in my backyard I feel great. I don’t know how to describe that feeling better than calling it “wholesomeness.” It highlights all my senses, (even gives me back my sense of smell,) and it highlights my appreciation for this land, for the people I’ve known and also those who just crossed my life for a short while. 

Life easy is not life, but an ordinary life is already beautiful. This is how I interpreted it:

A colourful life is no more than an ordinary life

The skies can be blue or red

and leaves are not always green

There’re daisies on the side of the streets 

There’s neighbour’s roof covered in snow…

Yet you still wonder as you grow

if your life is good…

People are dying because they don’t have enough food

Many don’t have a choice sick in bed either

And the unfortunate didn’t survive in wars

Don’t forget those who have no freedom to speak.

We all live in the shells that we create

It’s alright to cry

It’s alright to grieve 

It’s alright that you’re enraged

Learn, at your own pace, and move on.

(Ranchlands October 5th, 2022)

I hope you all have had a wonderful colourful season of your own. I wish you calm, healthy and happy with what Life has to offer. 

I also wish to share with you my newest paintings and they’re available if you’re looking for gifts, souvenirs or simply a highlight on your wall. This is my mini collection of Ranchlands in Fall 2022, 3 mini square sized (6 by 6 inches) and 1 rectangle (6 by 12 inches.) All are unframed, price underneath each painting excluding tax and shipping :)

These paintings are Ranchlands park in my eyes; they carry my joys when I could come from the dark to the light.
