Sunset in Autumn by martoo1973 Sunset in Autumn by martoo1973
before I leave to Germany for the next 2 weeks, I want to dedicate this painting for my mom.

It was/is now at the exhibition in Tokyo and I feel I just have to dedicate this to her to say THANK YOU for buying me colors, brushes and art-supplies back then, when I was about 17 years old, telling me I should paint, because I have talent.
I want to thank her from the bottom of my heart, that she was always there to encourage me with her constructive critics...

and I want to say THANK YOU MOM for helping me so much at my first exhibitions back in the 90s !!!!
I would have never become an artist without your support back then...

I love you Mom !!!!

Did this painting with acrylics and airbrush on a board... Format is A1

I only started again last year. Needed to take a break from it for 10 years, because my kids were small and I was busy, but now it feels so good to be back and, even more, I'm so happy to meet so many great people here on DA, like you, who give me so much support and encouragement !!! Thank you so much !!! :dance:

I know exactly what you mean, well not about the kids, i'm on 16, but don't let that fool you. Peoples ords are not only inspirations , but form into ideas for new and better pieces. In my gallery, right at thelast page, ive submitted some of my anime/ drawings that you might like being a fellow manga/ anything japanese art nut, so check them out if you have time!
Thankyou!!

I really love your gallery and also your Manga-art. :D

I used to do a lot of Manga during my time as a student, but recently I came back to my landscapes. Someday I would like to learn to combine both styles.

Thankyou very much, i hope to get into some more drawing soon, but lack of imagination/ motive has made it hard to do so.

This painting means much to me. My Mom died suddenly while I exhibited it and I felt I had to dedicate it to her, because I owe her so much. She encouraged me to start painting back then and even while I'm sad, I feel I need to continue painting, because she would have wanted that.

Thank you so much for the fave. it really means much to me :hug:

She died on the day, I visited the exhibition, so I wanted to dedicate it to her. I miss her so much, but since she encouraged me, she "lives" in my art.

This is really amazing. Wunderschön. The way everything is arranged, and you just stare at it, and then after a second you realise there's butterflies amongst the leaves.
& it's a wonderful dedication. You're amazing, really.

Ich freue mich riesig, dass es Dir gefaellt. Ich habe es fuer eine Ausstellung in Tokyo gemalt und meine Ma wollte es spaeter haben, weil es ihr so gut gefallen hat.
Leider ist sie dann so ploetzlich gestorben, aber ich dachte, ich widme ihr das Bild, weil sie mich damals zur Malerei gebracht hat und mich auch immer unterstuetzt hat... Danke fuer Deine lieben Worte und Dein Feedback :hug:

:aww: I think so, too.
As I said, I really feel, she is beside me still... I'm sad sometimes, but also at peace and glad, when I look behind, how much I learned from her.

Just took a picture of an old painting (Sci-Fi style) I did about 12 years ago. I will upload it in the next days... Til Tuesday I will be busy, cleaning my house and get things done back home, then I finally have time again to paint.
Thank you again :hug:

I am soooooo sorry that I called you by another name, Julia! :blush:
Right after hitting send I thought twice and said: Martha ??? She is Julia!
But I had to go so thereafter I forgot to apologize :no: I do so now!

I had to go back to your gallery and check, because Im sure I had seen this picture you mention on my watch today.

On that deviation it was not clear for me that you had done it... I thought it was strange, because it so looked like yours !!! And I called you Martha again there... guess I get confused with Martoo and thus I baptized you Martha, but THAT won't happen again, I promise :laughing:

I must be getting old (I feel sooooo ashamed !)

Freut mich, daß es Dir gefällt. Das war das erste Mal, daß ich mich mit Acryl und Airbrush an ein A1 Format getraut habe. Sonst male ich eher auf kleineren Flächen...

Gerade bin ich ja wegen sehr trauriger Umstände in Deutschland (meine Mutti ist gestorben), aber ich werde sicher wieder viel malen, wenn ich zurück bin. Das wird mir helfen, meine Trauer zu verarbeiten und mich ein wenig von der Leere ablenken (hoffe ich).

Oh, das tut mir leid. So wünsche ich dir viel Kraft für die Zeit des Abschiednehmens. Ich kenne es zu gut. Meine Mutter starb mit 50, da war ich gerade 19... Ich bin sicher, das Malen wird dir gut tun und helfen.

Ich bin noch immer durch den Wind, aber es geht mir nun schon etwas besser. Gestern bin ich auch wieder in Hakodate angekommen und nun gibt es erstmal viel zu erledigen. Putzen, waschen, Post usw. aber es hilft mir erstmal, mich abzulenken.

Tut mir leid, dass Du Deine Mutti in so fruehen Jahren verloren hast...
Gut, dass Dir das Malen half... mir wird es sicher auch gut tun, gerade in den Momenten, wo einen doch die Traurigkeit wieder ueberkommt.

I was actually very nervous painting it, because it is a big format and I mostly paint in smaller sizes. I'm glad it turned out good, because I feel a little bit encouraged now to paint in big format again.

I have a lot of new sketches here, I made on my travel to Nagoya and Ise this April, when things calm down and when I'm back to Japan, I will paint a lot again...
Maybe that is the best way to overcome my pain.
