New York Cottage Industry at LaLa’s Fleamarket

Me standing next to my art displayed at El Puente Presente in Brooklyn. I had a wonderful opportunity to be a part of something that builds community through the arts. Now that the show is over, I will be focusing on creating more pieces and finishing up commissions. Stay tuned, there's more to come!

This leaf is very special to me. When I visited my parents and stayed in their home in Jakarta Indonesia - one day she came home and surprised me with this leaf. I was very happy because I love collects leaves from different countries around the world. I wish I know what it is. So you my Dear Friends from Indonesia if you know the name please kindly let me know. Thank you😍
.
.
I tent to work in layers. First I applied the lightest then work all the way up to the darkest being last. Thats why it took me very long to paint leaf. I took about 15 video clips and I do not want it to speed up very fast so you cant see what I am doing. So I cut some of the repetion brush strokes. Until I come up with better solution I hope you like this video. 😎😍
.
.
And special thanks @lukasfarben who provided these beautiful paints.
.
.
I did add more layers and more texture after taking the video. .
.

And the colors are
- Burnt Umber
- English Red Light - Gamboge
- Payne's Grey
- Cad Red Light
- Gamboge

Hello, it has been a long time since I create a video. Well, here is one. I am planning on making series of fall leaves video. I am fascinated by their textures and colors. .
.
I know the video quality is not that good because the table is not sturdy, so the video is shaking. I will try to do better next time. .
.
This is not the video project I was talking about on my previous post. It is still in the making. πŸ˜πŸ˜‰
.
.
.
.
I used @lukasfarben paint on this video. 😍 I love their paint quality. And after having a break of using it and using other brand I feel Lukas' paint is very smooth when applying on the paper. I can feel the difference. So thank you Lukas Farben. I will create and continue make more videos for you.πŸ˜‰

Have you tried blind painting? It is the most beautiful thing you could have ever done. It is a form of meditation and mindfullness. An exercise to not over analize a problem. To let go and just go with your gut instinct. The result often more spontaneous and beautiful than the regular painting process. I plan on doing this everyday. Its a warm up as well. 
So before you jump on doing this - there are few things that you need to do. Have all the material ready with in reach. Here are the list,
- container of clean water
- 3 colors of paint. Here I used pink gouache, yellow acrylic and black ink. You can add one more medium like pencil or color pencil to draw on top. But keep it 3 colors of paints only.
- paper to draw
- papaper towel
-various type of brushes, and sizes.
- paint palette to mix paint
 The contrast the brushes the better the result will be.
You dont have to be blind folded the whole time. 
Here us what I did.
First I pick a brush and and a paint and mix with water. Once I did that, close your eyes and start to paint. Just rekax and paint follow the movement of your hand. You can lift the brush and pick another starting point where ever on the paper but dont open your eyes. Dont over paint it. Open your eyes and look. Start a over the same process with different size or type of brush and different color of paint. Until you happy with the result. Happy blind painting Everyone?😍😎

Please allow me to post one of my old work. This cluster of leaves found on the street in Delray Beach Florida. And I do not know the name of the tree which they fallen from. .
I might post a few of my old works more in the future. I am afraid they are buried in the archive and be forgotten. I think occasionally they should make an appearance. I think they deserve another round or two debut. I love them very much and I hope you do too! Thank you so much.πŸ˜˜πŸ˜πŸ’—

This is a story and a short video of me searching for the perfect leaf to paint. I visit botanical gardens and stop at an odd places where trees and shrubs grows just to find that one leaf.

This Persicaria lapathifolia found in a bird sanctuary located very close my house. It has a very small lake. I go there a lot to take a short walk sit down and take pictures. .

The first time printing my art. And Shutterfly did not dissapoint me. They are lovely (I think ...πŸ˜€πŸ˜€). .
I found one printing company here in my area. But they are a bit far. So I am going to test if they can print my skeletal leaf painting. 
Slowly I am half way ready for the art show case. And I think I am having a short break from painting leaf.πŸ˜πŸ˜€

Each leaf has its own charm as so is the painting process. A process with its up and down. The most difficult challenges and and the ones arent so difficult. One thing I have learned from painting something like this is to stay focus and just paint one section at a time. Also try not to analyze so much. I think its okay if it is not very precise. Thats the charm of one's painting style. .
I am happy its over. It took me 16 days to finish it. And every day I painted only about 2 -1/2 to 3 hours. I do have other tasks to do as well. In my perfect painting world - I would like to paint all day. But its impossible for me. I paint in between chores around the house. Thats why it takes a long time to finish one leaf. .
Anyways - here is a little video with me mentioning how I feel about this psinting. .
The picture at the beginning of this video does not do the real leaf painting justice. Its hard to digitize or clean the image from camera to get white background as the painting has a lot of thin paint on it. For example if I wanted to brighten it - it wash out those light thin areas that represent the flimsy decaying leaf. You know what I mean. Having said that, I dont even know how am I suppose to clean so I can send it to the printer. I guess I hv to buy Photoshop. .
Enjoy!

I must admit that I love this painting a lot. My husband and my son said that this is their favorite amongst all leaves I have painted so far. This picture does not do it justice. I think the real painting is nicer looking. Cant wait for it to be matted and framed. This is not finish. I am afraid to continue because if I over do it ; I might ruin it. I want to keep it soft and loose. Thats my approach to finish this painting. I am trying to avoid harsh looking on brown color that tent to do so. So I must be extra careful from now on forward. I cant believe its almost done. πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ₯‚

I just took another picture for you to see. I think there is not much progress on this painting from the last post. But this is a better picture. Also I decided to paint this leaf out of the real leaf with strong light illuminated from behind. Hence it is a total different look than if painted when there is no light illuminated on the leaf. So it is important to decide on how you want to capture it; with light or without light. Just so you know. You can try it yourself to see the big difference.😍☺

Hello Dear Insta Friends and Followers..
As usual this flower has taken me a long time to finish. And still is not finish. You probably wondering why. The reason is beside I wanted a painting worth a show I also wanted it worth for people to decorate their home. I used to paint loose florals fast that only takes 10 minutes. But I paintd so much of them that now are just piling up in the drawer. And yes I was able to post 3 paintings everyday. But it did not go anywhere. So I changed my style. Although it takes a long time - it has more quality to it. In other words I wanted to paint toward a "fine art" art. As I am still in the beginning stage of this style - each art must be painted with extra careful. So thank you so much for being patient and following me on my watercolor journey.😘😘😘😘

What a relief that this she is now done. .
I totally surrender to my own ability as I go a long painting this. And not knowing what the outcome is going to look like. In the end I have learned that your eyes and techique must become one. Try to figure out both what you see and what your hand hand can do. At first it was scary but I knew it well if I don't try it I won't learn anything. So I have learned tremendously from this painting. And my only hope is it will get better for the next leaf. But wait, I think I will paint flower next for a change 😁😁
Have a great day Dear Insta Friends☺☺ Paper: cold press Arches

Part 8 (LAST ONE); CREATE VEINS ON THE DECAYING AREA AND A WASH TO UNIFY THE WHOLE PAINTING.
With a very light color of mixed green and yellow I applied the paint on the entire area to unify the painting. 
This is done the very last. .
