For now, my work for Japanese style painting is proceeding smoothly. In Japan, I could get an advice from a teacher when I was badly stuck at making works, but now I have to overcome by myself. There’re some fellow artists around me so they could make advices about composition but nobody knows about skills of Japanese painting. Try my best:)
I got piano books which I played long time ago but I can’t do well now because of a finger decline. There is a piano in gallery and thankfully residency organizer lent me a key allowed to practice whenever I want 🙂 I’ll go there few times per week. No piano, no life!
I used a paper instead of a cloth after all. A gun stapler was broken, so I had two minds whether buying new one or a paper. I chose a later because I’m used to it. I feel happy I could put the paper on a panel at last, and simultaneously, feel difficulty to draw Japanese style painting on abroad. I wish next process could get smoothly .
Two weeks passed, since coming Berlin. At last I got a wooden panel but a gun stapler which is a tool to staple a cotton cloth on the panel doesn’t run well so I can’t start drawing for Japanese style painting. I wanna draw soon! Now I’m thinking I’ll use a paper instead of cloth. Time is money, should act according to circumstance.
The delivery day of wooden panel will be postponed on next Monday by my mistake, I’m depressed. When I checked my mailbox without key and phone, entrance door was locked automatically though usually it doesn’t shut right. Out of all days! I was locked out. Unfortunately, during asking help to my neighborhood, delivery had come and left. OMG
Fundamentally I cooked everyday at Berlin, food materials there are really cheaper than Japan (eating out is expensive due to tax for 19%). For example, blueberry which is a little expensive in Japan and milk products i love are very cheap:) And meat too. However there’s no as same seasoning as Japan, so it’s my theme what I cook tasty using German seasoning.
Since arrived at Germany, a week passed. I spend a really fun time every day. From yesterday German class and drawing class started (once a week). Seems that my wooden panel will be delivered on Friday , so I’m relieved:) But it’s so expensive than I buy it in Japan!
I’m still suffering from jet lag. Intense sleepiness attacks me at evening and wakes up early morning.
At supermarket on Saturday, it’s super crowded because of closing on Sunday. Carelessly I tried a self- cashier despite purchasing vegetables having no barcode, a salesperson helped me. To study word of food materials is must!
I ordered a wooden panel to tools shop, but i don’t know when I could get it.
It passed three days since I arrived at Berlin. I couldn’t update this website for a while on account of a security’s problem. Now I’m in trouble to not get wooden panel for work, although I want to start drawing:( Tomorrow for sure!
