The process.

ART

Looking back it is THE small choices of change made along the way that created the final piece. It is the courage to paint over a piece. It is the decision to keep trying when I have given hope on a piece. I learn by the process. It is the process of painting that makes it a therapeutic outlet of expression for me. I am a beginner. I am learning. I'm not great at it. But wanted to share the process. I wish other artists would do this more. I feel I would learn so much more about a piece and the artist if I knew what was under the final layer. Or how they arrived at their final piece. Here is a bit of the process. I'll start taking more pictures for my next pieces.


This artist inspired me to paint the thick lines. I used my rug for inspiration ;)

 I decided to add the iconic images of my childhood city. Hong Kong. With Oil Pastels.



This piece was inspired by a piece in an Art Museum during the Sundance Festival. I decided to capture the essence of my Daughter. She recognized her dress!



The colors of this piece was from my color study pieces. I decided to portray tulips, our wedding flower. It began with two tulips but it didn't seem complete till I added another four ;).
