Laundry Room

I have been painting landscapes for log time. I am getting tired of it. I like to paint some thing ales for change. Then I found a new subject. I am going to paint a scene inside of a house such as the painting above. So I started to taking a photograph of inside the house. Not only my house but my friend's house, too. If it's possible, I like to take a photograph of my neighbor. So, it will be my next project.

Birch Tree 2

My friend Noel and I went to a dim sum restaurant in China town. It was my second time of the dim sum adventure. Coincidentally,  my friend told me it was his second time, too. Or did he said it was second time to be that restaurant but not for the dim sum adventure. any way it was an interesting experience. Also, things went rather quickly. All that pushing food carts activity made me feel I have to eat quickly. I think that was good idea to rotate customers quickly. So they can take care of a lot of customers for a day. When we got the restaurant, waiting room was packed with people, but we didn't have to wait more than ten minutes. The most impressive thing was size of the restaurant. It was large enough for a gymnasium. I think Chinese people like a big things.

Birch Trees

It was dark outside and raining. I hated to get up from the warm cozy bed. But I had to. I was expecting to have some companies early this morning. So I forced myself to get up. I quickly checked e-mail and I found that they will not come because of rain. It's sad to say that Californian don't know how to drive in the rain. Fact is,  I felt relieved more than a little disappointment. Only thing I could do time like this was go back to bed and be lazy.

Best Koi

During my regular morning walk, I saw a beautiful, cute, clean rabbit a couple of morning ago. It has a cocoa colored soft fur and big wide ears dropping like a beagle. It must be a someone's pet. I felt the temptation to catch it and bring it with me. But I resist the temptation. And then, I saw an another rabbit this morning. This time it was just an ordinary white rabbit, it's still cute as well. Now, I am looking forward to see more rabbit. I wonder there is a rabbit farm around my neighborhood.

Bishop Creek

Our watercolor class is very busy. I don't mean we are busy painting but We are busy chatting. I should change our class name to "Advanced Chatting Class". So, I am getting better talker than a painter.

Apples and Bananas

One of my friends and I had a nice lunch at a food court in Japanese market. For some reason, I was craving for ramen today, so, I had a ramen combination. It came with a special rice bowl. My friend Noel had a salad. He is an American but he loves to do shopping at Japanese market. There are so many interesting goods which he can’t find at American market. I can’t blame him that he attracted to Japanese market. At the end of our meal, we had a cream-puff  for a dessert.

Azalea 2

I went to a gym this morning where held a Tai-Chi class, and only to find the door into the gym was locked. I didn't know why.  So, I went to an art supply shop instead. I wanted to get watercolor papers. On the way home, I turned on a car radio. And I found that today is labor day. Since, I am a self employment, and single I don't pay attention to the holidays.

One of my friends and I went to a Chinese restaurant. When we made this lunch out plan, he asked me that what kind of food I like to have. We tried Japanese food last time, so I suggested him to pick up a place. But he insisted that I can decide. Finally, I said "How about Chinese?" And he agreed. However, he had no idea where is a nice Chinese restaurant around his area. Since, I supposed to come his area this time, he should find a place in his area.  After a little silence, he said "I know, we can go this restaurant at corner of Robertson and Pico street. I forgot the name of the place, because I went to that restaurant a long time ago.

We found the place easily and enjoyed meal. The name of the restaurant is 'Twin Dragons" It was not great Chinese food, but it was fairly good. However, It was not good enough to I can come back here again.

Autumn Road

I had nothing to do today. But that’s all right because this is Saturday, I am supposed to take a nice rest. So, I painted a little, I watched TV and I played Tai-Chi. Waite a minute, come to think of it, it’s no different from any other day.
