今日からギターの練習始めました。シェアメイトからの借り物です。彼女はめちゃ上手！ピアノはギャラリーにあるので毎日は弾きにくい(徒歩30分)けどギターはいつでも弾けます^ ^私の大好きなBump of chicken のギターナンバー’everlasting lie’をマスターしたい。勿論弾き語りで。初心者なのに難しい曲に挑戦してるけど頑張る💪目標はブライアンメイ笑
From today I started playing a guitar which I rent from my share mate who’s guitar expert. It can allow me to play everyday compared with piano there’s in gallery(30 minutes by walking). I wanna master a guitar number ‘everlasting lie’ by BUMP OF CHICKEN I love, while singing , of course:) I try to play difficult song despite a beginner, do my best! My target level is Brian May :p
I joined online drawing session held by drawing organizer and one of the students. What a wonderful idea! These days making works was suspended because I couldn’t get inspiration from this situation I hardly go out. But my creativity was inspired by this session. Recently I was like a living dead because I couldn’t do creative activities, but seems like I’m finally breathing 🙂
I need a new target because all works for group exhibition finished. I expect to join an art event in May at Spain but not sure it’ll be held or not, so i lost my motivation to make new painting. I have nothing to do, I feel spend everyday in vain. To be honest now I get homesick just a little bit, but I try to find something what I can do here in Berlin.
This morning, it was decided that group exhibition is postponed until maybe May and my extension of stay at least 3 months probably. I just contacted the Schengen visa authority. I’ve been feeling massive fatigue against rapid change of circumstances, so went to practice the piano which is my tranquilizer( btw using a rental bike to avoid the contact with people). While playing I organized my mind that I should accept this situation as my destiny. I’m not sure I’ll make extra painting or get a job in three months, but I’ll try to think positively.
Invitation card for our group exhibition was completed. My work is used for front page, I’m happy:) However, now our organizer is thinking whether exhibition is postponed or not. In case of postpone, I’ll extend the stay in Germany using a special extension visa. The period is undecided. I can’t say anything clearly because it’s hard to predict something even the near future. Having a impression that situation is getting worse rapidly because I tend to be late in understanding the circumstances due to no tv&pc there. I just only have a complicated feeling, what’s a tricky status! 🙁 If it’s decided to extend, I might buy a secondhand pc.
Now my theme of works is to combine music with art. I sparked suddenly while free concert that what will happen if I express the music-specific rhythm terms as a painting. I wanted to unite both of them because they’re important expression mediums for me. And animals beat the rhythm. It’s exciting for me because the world of my works is going to expand 🙂
When I change the color of silver leaf, use lime sulfur but couldn’t find it here, so purchased a liquid including sulfur that is used as blackening silver accessories. I applied that on silver leaf as usual, silver leaf blackened soon without heat( in case of lime sulfur, chemical reaction is urged by heat). And the parts which I didn’t apply anything changed gold or green after painting alum liquid( reaction terminator). Probably it’s caused by difference of pH or ingredients, it’s hard to deal with than lime sulfur. Umm…
I got many opportunities to think about what is art since came to Berlin. Painting skills are overwhelmingly important in Japan, but things of novelty is everything here. Therefore I quit thinking a lot and painted new work pursuing a design, as a result I could open new frontier for myself:) I’ll keep making this type of art awhile.
