Just A Thought

I usually wake up to do my artwork around 2 am everyday.  It is now so cold even in the apartment.  We, here in NY, had a winter weather a few days ago just it should be now.  It's been so cold but it is nice to know that we have winter since the global warming is damaging this earth. We used to have a lot of snow in the winter.  We do need to think about saving here.   Don't you think so?  I was thinking about it while my daily drawing.  It is also my meditation time. Just a thought.

Artworks At Studio

Since the weather is getting cold and it is getting into winter, I usually do my artworks at studio/home. It is the time for me to prepare for my corresponding artworks for my friends, which I have been doing for over 25 years. I do not know how many artworks I have created. Twice every year, about 450 cards or artworks have been created with my messages to be sent out to them. Each artwork is different. I do not know how many persons would have kept them, either. But it is okay for them whatever they want to do. When my creativity is working, I do care the quality of each work. I just have to be healthy as long as I continue them. That is the "Art De Genki" for. Thanks to all of my friends.

Sorry, I could not make the last chalk drawing.

Last weekend should have been my last chalk activities for the year. Unfortunately, I was tied up with other things and the last Sunday was windy and cold. I could not bear to stay outside. So, I will see you all next Spring. Wish you very happy holidays! Stay healthy! See you all in Genki.

Wonderful Conversation

This weekend was wonderful. When I was drawing, a little girl came over and she asked,
“How do you think about the picture?”
I said, “Through my good night sleep.”
She wondered and then a lady near us said “it comes naturally, right?”
I enjoyed the conversation with them.
The next weekend will be my last chalk drawing this year.
Then I will be back to the park next spring.

The second rainy Sunday

I could not go out for the chalk drawing on Sunday, either. As it was raining early morning yesterday, I was quite disappointed not to be able to continue my chalk drawings in the park. However I had other things to finish up before the middle of this month to start the new project. Somehow the rain was giving me the opportunity to finish up the remaining project for me. In another couple of weekends, I will finish for this year's chalk drawing. Because the weather is getting cold. I will see how and how much I can do till then.

A rainy day

It has been raining since Friday, September 26. I wanted to go out to the park to continue my last week’s drawing. Maybe the weather is telling me to work inside instead; but I went out for walk and I noticed the chalk drawings in the park were so pretty just like under transparent sheet. The chalk pigments got into the pavement and the drawings were shinning in the rain. Since I am not a good photographer, I could not take a picture of it. I thought the surface was too shinny. I hope some of my friends will notice it. Now I am ready for the next weekend.

My first blog


This is my first blog.  
One of my good friend set up my English home pages.  
In this summer I have been practicing chalk drawing at the Battery Park City Park on the weekends.  It is very good for me do my artwork there, because I can get direct feed backs from viewers, like " I like it.","Do you think of it before drawing?", "What's that?", etc.
I enjoy talking to them.  This will give me GENKI from them exchanging my artwork.
I am always looking forward to talking to viewers.  Honest reactions & opinions are very welcome. Thanks to all.  See you next weekend.
