HK Geopark

My family and I joined a local tour to visit the Geopark yesterday.  I totally forgot about it until the night before, had drinks with friends till rather late and ended up sleeping very little before the trip.  As a result, the trip seemed rather exhaustive, I spent every minute on the bus and on […]

Painting

Ventured into painting in the last few days, still haven’t quite got the hang of it.  But I’ll have to put the little hobby aside and get serious with my freelance work once again now that the kids in the house are off to Canada for their summer vacation.  No more excuses to slack off […]

Paintings

Took my young nephew and niece to breakfast this morning.  There was a small art exhibition by a few Mexican artists in the mall, we spent a fair amount of time looking over the paintings again and again.  I was particularly captivated by the series of acrylic paintings of birds (cardinal, blue jay, and a […]

Leonardo da Vinci

Went to see an exhibition on the Marvellous Inventions of Leonardo da Vinci at the Science Museum.  MARVELLOUS indeed!  A scientist, engineer, inventor, anatomist, architect, and also an exceptional artist, I cannot think of anyone as diversely talented as Leonardo da Vinci!  I’m most impressed by his sketches and prototypes to experiment with new ideas. […]

I’ve also spent some time creating my first colored artwork […]

Fotanian Open Studios 2010

The dark streets, the industrial buildings, and the smell of machinery gave me a bit of a Déjà Vu this afternoon when I was aimlessly visiting the different open studios of Fotanian.  I remember when I was young, my parents would occasionally bring me to their industrial flats because there was no one to look […]

AGO

I’ve finally visited the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) today!  I’ve been wanting to go for ages, but the visit was delayed for fear of the dreadfully long trip to downtown.  I’m glad I overcame that fear today. It was a great experience, especially when I was accompanied by a friend who knows so much […]

Acrylic Painting

I bought this inexpensive Acrylic Painting for Dummies kit a few years ago when I was taking night classes that explored many different art media.  However, I didn’t play with the kit until today. Acrylic paint is quite versatile, it’s like oil paint when thickened but it behaves more like watercolor when diluted.  I followed […]
