The year 2014 has been an incredibly  busy year. It's my first year in the art show business and I've learned a lot. 

My works also benefit from exposure to other artists, art lovers and the general public. I am astonished how I am an actual social person. I love talking to people from all over the place!
Winter days are all about being cozy and producing more works for the next year!

This piece is done yesterday. I love the simplicity of these plums. I decided capture the shapes and value with mostly charcoal. I found the charcoal black is sometimes more intense than pastel black, and charcoal actually gets along with pastels so well. Playful colors are then added to the most interesting area where light and shadow conflicts.
