In this beautiful capture by DaeWook Kim, we see fields of Royal Azaleas on Mt. Hwangmaesan in South Korea during the Hapcheon Hwangmaesan Royal Azalea Festival which runs from May 3 – 16 each year. According to South Korea’s official tourism site:
The 1,108-meter-high Mt. Hwangmaesan encompasses the three peaks of Habong, Jungbong and Sangbong. Since the reflection of the mountain is also mirrored on the water of Hapcheon Lake, the mountain is also called ‘Sujungmae’ (literally meaning ‘ume (Japanese apricot) blossom under water’). In spring, azalea and rhododendron blossoms take over the entire mountain; in summer, you can enjoy the refreshing valley area; in the fall, the sound of birds singing is everywhere; and in winter, harsh winds swirl around the snow-capped Dongnipbong Peak.

The area is a popular destination for hiking and enjoying the stunning landscape. See Visit Korea

Over the top busy this spring and summer, with new galleries, a solo show in place and several other shows coming up between now and August.
We had a lovely, packed opening reception at Chace-Randall Gallery in Andes, NY. I will be updating the blog post I created about the work in the show as pieces continue to sell—but you really should see the show in person, if you couldn’t make the opening! Thank-you to Zoe Randall for the party and especially for a great job hanging the work. The show will be up through July 7th.
I am showing again at Butters Gallery in Portland Oregon— and so pleased to add this…

Well I have a due date coming up for a project pretty soon, of which the objective is to draw a self portrait in the mirror in chalk pastel. We are supposed to have an expression that highlights the use of one particular facial muscle of our choosing. I secretly love taking in-progress pictures of my work. Partially because it gives me an excuse to take a break and partially because I like looking back later. So here are some quick pics of what I’ve come up with today. (I can’t resist posting them because I look so terrifying) The finished product will be in much more realistic colors but I’m focusing on establishing color in this first layer. If you have any comments please share!
I went to the Adirondacks recently and I’ve decided to post the highlights of some of the photos I took. Lately I’ve been taking photos more for reference purposes and not so much to stand alone, but I think there are a few here worth saving. Also there are some cows…because I like cows.
I’ve decided to do the section of the visible human project in illustrator too for fun. Well, and because I don’t have the desire to finish it in watercolor. I’m planning on keeping this sort of style and just adding gradients. It should be easier to understand that way. The progress shown here has no gradients yet, but almost all of the basic shapes.
