This Thursday will be one year from when my dad passed away due to years of dealing with emphysema. My dad was a great man that taught me everything I know today...especially to work hard, cherish my family and to have great pride for my Korean background. I never wanted to imagine what it would be like without him in my life. Last year, everything happened so fast, my sister and I didn't have time to really grasp what was going on. 'Til this day, we feel like he's gonna call us and let us know he's back from a long vacation.

Last year, we laid his ashes in the Southern California's part of the Pacific Ocean, where my grandmother is. My sister and I live in Northern California and will be planning to go to Santa Cruz, where we can visit my dad...the way we see it, he's anywhere within the Pacific Ocean for us to visit and it will be nice to have some time with him.

Paintings on wood...

I just finished my small series of walruses. I can't tell you how much I LOVE these wood panels I'm using for my paintings. I buy them all at Michaels for literally dollars and they come in all sizes! I can't wait for the upcoming show my sister and I will have. It's going to be nothing but drawings and paintings of animals...our dedication to all wild and domestic creatures of our planet!

New animals...

Here's my late night work station in my living room, as I watch tv. I usually will paint there or upstairs in the loft, where the rest of my stuff is.

I just finished a couple of "series" I started last week. Hamsters, inspired by the movie BOLT and some Rhinos. These will be put into the upcoming show I'll be having with my lovely sis at Black & Brown. The opening is Saturday, Oct. 3rd....look out for the flyer. Soon to be announced!

p.s. The whale painting is just something I felt like doing and the bird you see to the upper left is also another series I'm working on....not yet complete.
