Sylvia Ji
I blogged Sylvia Ji’s artwork about 3 years ago, and it’s nice to see that her painting is still getting better and better.  Her female figures are outstanding. Here’s a YouTube video about Sylvia.

These are really nice.  I can’t believe the painting below is available for only 850 Euros!

In his own words:

“My work is an attempt to document my existence. To leave a visual record of my thoughts, ideas, and fantasies. I currently reside in the wilds of Kentucky, with a bird and our son, on a mountaintop, right next to the sun, where I create my artwork high on butterfly wine.”

Portrait of Artistic Genuis: Katsushika Hokusai
This is a Smithsonian special on the legendary Japanese Ukiyo-e artist Katsushika Hokusai and one of the segments is about one of great masterpieces in the history of art – Southern Wind Clear Dawn (Red Fuji).  The photographer is video segment of Red Fuji explained that Mt. Fuji turns red usually only three days of the year, and some years Fuji doesn’t turn red at all.  It’s amazing to think that seventy year old Hokusai managed to capture a view of a real Red Fuji dawn.
