Universal Language, Art

Have you ever thought of languages on the earth? 
A birds-eye-view sketching is from a shopping mall. A snapshot of us, Australians. People's movements in different directions coexist in a same glance. Very fascinating. 
Isn't it a "miracle" that each of us has a precious life story in rich linguistics diversity? So many languages are coexisting in NSW (source "Language Spoken at Home1999 to 2001" conducted by Community Relations Commission ). Last week, there was a Chinese new year festival. 
Actually, Korean Buddists ran a stall for paper crafts. Many children enjoyed making colourful water lily lanterns. Also, colourful languages were there! 
Oh, I did not come across a Chinese fortune teller, who had been extremely popular last year. A bit shame, I missed out the secret tips, how to become a millionair?!? 

In a daily life, language barriers could make communication difficulties. But any language speakers, young and old, whatever differences, communicate in drawing and painting. A sketcher is always popular at anywhere. People and children come around me and enjoy looking at the watercolor painting.
I'd make work that will bring others joy, love and hope.

Art is a wonderful device for communication, although sometimes, it needs a "bipartisan support" or an "informed consent"... :).


...I sincerely hope blog visitors will take a rest, share joy and happily exchange thoughts in our journeys on the earth.
Thank you for visiting.
Let us enjoy art work!! 
Friends, Happy Painting!

  10. Dear Carol,
    Good suggestion!
    I've already found the secret. The secret is "there's no such a secret." So, I'm ready to die in poverty but happily, holding brushes and looking up a blue sky:).

  19. Happy New Year Sadami!

    So true...art is something people understand around the world, and rarely needs translation.

    Your lovely, lively street scenes are so colorful and fresh. It's like being there to enjoy it.

    Sadami, if it's not a secret, will you someday tell what colours you use. I would love to see your palette.

    Yours,

    Nanina (GG)

  22. The joyful exuberance that comes through in your paintings and your words lifts me up at the end of a tedious, stressful day! Thank you for spreading your fun and joy and I hope it comes back to you a hundredfold!

  23. I really enjoy the range of paintings in each one of your posts. I especially drawn to the "birds eye" shopping mall sketch. Really great painting work.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Dear Nanina,
    No secret at all. Only a few primary colours. Not fussy about colours at all (embarrassing! I do not memorize commercial colour names well): raw sienna, burnt sienna, Windsor yellow, (something)blue, something red, cadmium orange. My handmade watercolor kit is so tiny, sits on my palm!
    I already talked of the watercolor kit, colour use in "How to make quick sketches." Click a label "QuickSketches" and find more info.
    Cheers, Sadami

  33. Como siempre los dibujos son magníficos, tienes toda la razón cuando dices que el dibujo y la pintura son un medio universal de comunicación, como se dice "un dibujo vale por mil palabras"

    As always the pictures are gorgeous, you're absolutely right when you say that drawing and painting are a universal means of communication, as they say "a picture is worth a thousand words"

  39. Sadami, me llamó la atención esa acuarela donde aparecen muchas personas circulando como hormigas por la ciudad. Cada uno con su historia y su lenguaje...todos unificados en una hoja por tí. Es maravilloso!
    Los demás dibujos y sus explicaciones siempre son interesantes.
    Un beso.

    Sadami, I noticed that watercolor where many people appear to circulate through the city like ants. Each with its history and language ... all unified in a sheet for you. It's wonderful!
    Other drawings and explanations are always interesting.
