Splash of Creativity in the Studio

I was planning to attend an opening in the city, but decided to stay home to work today. When my art is calling for me, I'm just not in the mood to be out there. Doodling something, refining my transferred drawing on canvas, or touching up my paintings while listening to some Balinese ambient music sound perfect than going out today.

This week, I was busy finishing up this small oil painting on paper for "Sanrio for Smiles" exhibition during MiJapan 2011 festival in Italy. It's an exhibition benefiting the people in Japan and will be held at Chiostri dell'Umanitaria in Milan.

Paper is my second favorite surface after linen. I don't really have any particular reasons than it just feels different but feels right in my heart...hehe.

Silly doodle ^^

Besides being productive in the studio, DH and I also had a bit of fun date. DH's school has this hotel management program where they train and grade the students by building a real restaurant setting on campus. They charge a very affordable price for a three course meal plus dessert. Let's just say it's below $10 per person. It's nice that I don't need to cook for a day and we get a chance to have a fancy date without the fancy price:)

Yummy Surf and Turf
