ACEO: Soul Mates by DanielleMWilliams

Lovely work, and there is so much depth in this little painting! I really like the symmetry of the painting, with the two cranes facing...

The Water Shrine (A Princess Mononoke tribute) by TylerHinde

I love how you've taken some characters from a popular anime film and put them in a new world. I quite like how you added the silhouett...

Journal Entry: Fri May 29, 2015, 10:06 AM
Greetings everyone,

Hope everybody is having a good day/week/month/whatever.

Just got back on Monday from a short visit to Quebec City to write an exam. Had a lot of fun, and although it was just a weekend trip I feel like I've been gone for months, I love it when trips seem to take forever.

Quebec is such a picturesque city, it's definitely worth a visit. It's like a little bit of Europe in Canada. And I got to speak some French, even though I'm dreadful at it (only class in school that I got a "D" at). I'll have to post a couple of my favorite photos from my visit.

Unfortunately, afterwards, I seem to have contracted a small upper respiratory tract infection, aka, cold. It's getting better. Which is good as I have to get to work as soon as possible as our manager went home sick (I admit might be my fault!).

Good news is I think the exam went well? Time will tell.

Now with my new-found free time, I have to set some new goals and keep progressing. I want to paint, I want to draw some people.

I need to also get going on brushing up my Japanese for my fourth trip to Japan this fall.

I invite everyone to share an inspirational song or two.
Feel free to suggest some people to draw as well.

taibossigai's Profile Picture

Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
I am a self-taught aboriginal artist. I enjoy painting in the Ojibwe or Woodlands style, which depicts energy lines emanating from living and non-living subjects. I also paint things and scenes that inspire me from nature.

I am also greatly inspired by Asian artwork, especially by ukiyo-e or woodblock prints. I also enjoy painting with traditional ink.

I also have my own website at
