Hi, my name is Chizuru Takeda,
but my artist's name is Lucy.
Thank you for visiting my Lucy's Art Gallery
I started painting 7 years ago.
I used a small oil painting set, a small canvas 8" X 8".
Started soon I recognized it was very difficult.
Do you know why?
Because I didn't know what I wanted to paint.
Is it funny?
"What I want to paint?"
From then, I tried to paint over again and again....
Then, I made it finally!
This was exactly what I wanted to paint.....
This oil painting captured what I wanted to express.
That is how my artistic life started.
Now my studio is brimming over with my paintings.
Each of paintings has a story.
It is not a story that the artist made it.
It is a story born from the canvas in a natural manner.
The canvas tells me something, and I bend my ear to the voice from the canvas.
The canvas whispers to me " I am very happy."
That is as if the painting was born at that moment.
It is like a miracle!!
My painting is full of happiness.
I wish to send a blessing, smile...
I wish to send the light, breeze, sent...
I wish to send my feeling, my happiness...to you.
