                                                    The cast from "Tokyo Sonata"






After watching this film, I felt as
though the story was less "skittles"and more of a "full meal."
I highly recommend watching it.

 


A few plein-eir studies from recreation parks in Fullerton.






 More concepts. Still trying to produce something solid.

  3. Hi,Tim,
    I watched the movie in Sydney, which touched me so much. It handles so many serious social issues that we are familiar with. I wish I could watch it again. Apart from the content of the movie, your drawings and paintings are lovely. Keep up.
    Cheers,Sadami

  10. Well, I don't need to ask what you've been doing because you just slapped us in the face with it! And I mean that in a good way :) First, these gorgeous portraits - and I'm in love with the way you've made black hair so beautiful and colorful in all of them and the faces are so interesting and attractive, too; then those traditional landscapes and the lacey trees; and then SLAP in the face with these "caricatures" that are amusing, interesting, fun, and awesome! WOW work all around. Thanks for sharing all of these and showing your diversity.

  27. Tim, I was sure I left you a comment, but I don't see it here. I am impressed with the breadth of your art -- from lovely portraits and plein air painting to imaginative creations -- just wonderful. What mediums are you using? I love to know that when I view your work.

    I was just in SF overnight -- what a great city for studying art.

  30. Chris: I am looking forward to Forkan's class this semester.

    Mary: I used pastels to complete the portraits and plein-eir paintings. I drew the characters out on paper, then scanned them into the computer, and enhanced them in Photoshop.

    Eusong: One of these days we will get together to do some plein-eir painting.

    Thanks everyone for the kind comments. I really appreciate them.
