Portrait. I played with 2 inks and few Kuretake pens, used white pen a little bit, wrote “be happy” in shaky half dissolved letters (I love puddles), and now I deserve breakfast.

Beetle. I won’t want to drive it, I like big cars, but have to admit, it is good looking. Sepia ink and couple of Kuretake pens.
One day I went to draw a backdrop for the play and down the street saw that beauty. Garbage truck was backing up passing few centimetres from me, unable to make a turn on narrow Brooklyn’s street. I closed my eyes when it passed that elegant antique Jaguar. I think it is Jaguar SS 100 from 1937, built in England. I can’t help it, being charmed by cars. Used ink and 2 Kuretake pens.
Ketchup with Ziza. My old work. Portrait of my daughter. I was the best story teller, combining the fairy tales I read and world folklore, using my imagination and making up a happy ending, with good amount of horror. So I wanted to catch the expression of listening. I used watercolor, size is 20 inches.
CATching up with Bob. New Kuretake pens I recently got online. Very happy to highlight my palette with this wonderful Kuretake Twins.
I used my Sepia again, warm puddles with orange rims, medicine for my wounded soul. I would add a bit of cold grey Lexington ink, but it makes it stringy, some sort of chemical reaction. Bits of color with Kuretake, to appreciate pure green of apple, flowers on Albert’s Royal, red on tomato and warm strokes on sardines. Main attention on negative panting of bouquet. I painted background cutting into brunches, what a twisted game.
I made this Federico Aubele’s song my ringtone,”Despertar”, for my ear it sounds “Desperate”, but in Spanish it means “Awakening”. So even when I get calls from unpleasant recipients, like mortage companies, it still gives me warm vibe. Here used ink and Palomino Blackwing 602 pencil. Drew my lovable Fellini cat and used 3 languages.
Morning melancholy. Little table scene. Took me forever to bring to completion. I kept adding a stroke here, there. Find time and unwind. Was not happy with ink colors, greys and brownish. Should leave it for quick sketches on a train, I think. I used my new Kuretake pens I got online.
“Memories of summer” it says in Japanese. It is reality, but it is how I remember it. All our morning breakfasts and conversations, our silence and laughs over coffee, playing with dogs and feeding birds blends into one material for my drawing. I used ink and few Kuretake pens.
Shadow Mountain Road. This adorable little bridge we passed probably thousand times, it makes me smile, how cozy and intimate it looks. Somewhere here years ago we bought delicious Maple syrup. It was so good with Maggie’s french pancakes.
I used ink and 2 Kuretake pens. I am falling in love with this Kuretake pens deeper and further.
