New work, fine dining and oil painting!


 For a long time, I regard myself as a strictly analogue person who never goes well with this high-tech era. I always love reading old novels on train while other passengers gazed at their smartphone like forever. I have never had a digital watch, let alone a smart watch, as you can imagine. In such a self-isolation, I love the way I do. 


 New work has finally started out this month, and I spent somewhat calm days. Trying to get used to a whole new environment in weekdays, and having fine dining on weekends.  And I believe I'm not gonna change this peaceful lifestyle anytime soon :)







 And yes, my obsession for painting never vanishes!

paint in summer of 2019 :)


 As the deadly hot and humid summer has been finally gone, I feel like writing things happened around me in the summer of 2019.



 It was modestly calm and peace in my mind, and apart from occasional long-distance driving and long work time, most of my spare time had been dedicated to have nice food in restaurants and cafes, and painting in home.








 I know my life is way different from ordinary people in Japan. There's no doubt about it. But I love the way I am, you know :)

Photography and painting.


 As a kid, I had always regarded a painter as someone like a wizard. They create something from nothing. They are mysterious, attractive, and beyond my imagination.


 That's probably why I started taking photographs when I was 20s. I thought like, okay, I want to paint, but let's face it, can person like me without any talent do it? As I continued to take photographs, I felt content in some sense. To be honest, I was good at it, and some people even offered me to do it as a job. The point was, however, I couldn't give up painting. So this year, after 10 years since I started photography, I finally bought oil painting brushes and colours, then started out.


 I don't know how it would develop, but I'm quite happy with this current situation :)

Lost in my thoughts.


 Long July is finally about to be gone, and I think I should be proud of myself for surviving this harsh month. I had to visit many many companies for job interviews, which is quite tiring, and so many other chores to do. But in the same time, I could spend my spare time cooking and painting. That at least, is a nice thing about quitting a job. So let's see what it was like in July for me.












 I believe things are getting better soon, and there's no need to get depressed at all! :D

Painting, painting, painting!


 Alright, I'm finally back to publish a new post, which I've missed last month. For me, previous month was all about food and painting, and I had never afraid of showing what I think was important. One day I went out, hanging with friends until midnight, and the other day I found myself sitting in front of a easel, gazing at a blank canvas, spending a whole day painting. And crucially enough, I love them both. That's what it was like in June.













 Yeah, I prefer to do my best instead of just sitting in a chair and sobbing!

Reiwa era has just begun!


 It's the end of 10-day holiday in Japan, and I just thought I would publish a new post to see what it was like in my "Golden Week" holiday. Unlike many friends, I didn't have any particular plans to do. So basically I cook dish three times a day, and painting pictures occasionally.






 Oh, I met my friend who gave a birth one month ago. New born baby belongs to Heisei era, which has been for 31 years in Japan before ended in April 2019. Me? I'm a person from Showa era, which ended before Heisei era! We all belong different era now, hm, interesting...

Dining, painting and me :)


 April in 2019 was quite an interesting month for me. I'm back to a full-time job, and also, began joining to a lunch club held in fine restaurants in Tokyo. As you know, I love these kinds of luxury atmosphere, nice utensils, wonderful meals, oil painting on the wall....well, pretty much everything, haha.




 While I enjoy those restaurants, I equally love cooking myself, having it in completely silent morning, staring at flower in a glass vase. It really makes me feel content, and if things get busy in the near future, I will definitely continue my way of living :)





 Regarding drawing and painting.....




 I think I'm making progress, slowly but surely ;)
