New Tumblr Banner

Colors to my music

Inspired by songs that shuffled through my iPod.
Will do more practices like these in the future! They are fun :)

Bit of childhood

This is still one of my favorite feelings, having someone tug out your sleeve.And after this, I usually get to ride on the back of the bike, amongst the busy streets of China to school in the morning.

Does anyone else feel the same?

This is only Ch2.054

Recently I finished my second moleskin. It's sad to compare one of the earlier paintings I did in it being two years ago. Two years is too long of a time! I promised myself to finish way more than this, paint thicker (clearly hadn't happened), travel to more places etc.....

It will happen! This is only the beginning

Hallucination - Loop#3

Hallucination from Elaine Chen on Vimeo.

Let's just call this another experiment. Was meant to be completed for Loopdeloop October and with all those galaxies animated!!I really wanted to do it, sigh. (Hallucination was the theme) Life had caught up with me and now I have simply been with it too long.

This is no where close to how I imagined it, but, it's done at least. Enjoy!

Film #001: Wallpaper

I have finally impulsively decided to just get this out here. My thesis film, Wallpaper!

I truly enjoyed this process and cannot wait to get my hands on the next project, whatever it may be! (Perhaps after me settling in to my new home and getting better flow of my new job. It's a time of many new beginnings in my life right now)

Happy film making everyone!

Train rides are the best.

I apologize for this massive post and me being too lazy to be selective. But I had enjoyed every single moment of the train ride from Toronto to Vancouver and would do it again in a heartbeat! I recommend this to anyone who would enjoy some quiet time and beautiful scenery. You can always ask me more question regarding my experience and further tips and such if you want. But for now, I am going to let the pictures do the talking. (Below are just a few I have done being in Vancouver. Again, SUCH a beautiful city.)

Studying the 50s and 60s. Part I

This is the only the beginning of an ongoing exercise I made for myself. I had gathered a bunch of photographs from a friend's family. They are absolutely gorgeous already as photographs, but I cannot help myself from trying versions of my own.  I know some of the people in these photographs or at least have mutual connections of some sort, I feel a lot more inspired to do these as well because of it.

Using these as an exercise for speed, color, design, style......or just whatever I feel like practicing on the day of. They are fun to do anyways.

Don't waste your paints..

especially your oil ones. Haha. At least the reason I am always left with so much paint, is that I do paint very thickly and have learned to not be clingy to my million years old paint tubes, and always have paint on your palette.

It's fun to do extra plein paintings anyways right?
