The drawings of the bugs were done with Japanese Ink on French Croquis paper also done while i was living in Sendai, Japan. The bugs were done as part of entertaining my children in naming them in Japanese and the japanese characters were written by my very close family friend Mrs Emi Yanagisawa who was a great art supporter when I was there.
The mural on the wall was done with acrylic and I used air brush in some spots for good effects. My son itroduced me to the use of air brush and after struggling to get the thing to work right I got the hang of it. This apinting is on my son's living room wall in hyis apartment at the Manafel Towers, Budai. The three potted bonsai plants is the latest addition tot he painting.
I did this mural after completing the one for my son and this mural is also in one of the living rooms at the Manafel Towers apartments. It is a reproducton of the Kanagawa Wave by Katsushika Hokusai but with a surfer in it instead of fishing boats like it was originally painted.
Chad, pointing out the surfer and being employed as a model to show the size of the actual painting.
Camels taking a stroll in the Dubai desert a picture taken by my son Timo, it is a great picture where camels are concern. It reminds me of having a great time with my son taking a Dune Bashing trip.
