It’s time for me to show who I admire as artists and their artworks…starting with Chloe Tomomi who I met while living in Hawai’i. All her works over US$40 are 40% off through Friday, Dec 11 at 12:00AM (Hawai’i) Add them to your cart to see the sale price!
Nature is often a favored subject matter of hers and it’s therapeutic effects on us. Many of her images are a place for a deep meditative breath, with images of forests and a variety of trees demonstrating the Japanese habit of “Forest Bathing.”
Chloe introduces herself on her website better than I could:
“My name is Chloe Tomomi, and I am a watercolor and gouache artist born and raised in Honolulu, Hawai’i. I have had much exposure to natural landscapes such as jungle, ocean, city, and forest scenes. These environments cause me to feel at peace and give me inner strength. I find hidden messages in every aspect of nature. This inspiration has led me to deeply express my emotions through natural landscapes. I tend to paint peaceful, atmospheric paintings as a reflection of my soul. My hope is that onlookers will have an emotional or spiritual reaction or perhaps recognize a part of themselves in my work. As for my goals, I am aspiring to become a master watercolor artist and teach workshops around the world.”
Chloe works diligently at learning new techniques and practicing them to create A. Maz. Ing! watercolor pieces that make me say, WOW, every time. Sometimes she posts time-lapse, process videos. Living in Hawai’i and surrounded by water she creates phenomenal pieces with water as a main subject.
Please follow her art making journey on Instagram: Chloe Tomomi and show your support for small, creative businesses by making a purchase via her Etsy Store: Chloe Tomomi. The shimmering ocean watercolor I purchased will warm up my studio during the cold winter 💙
Courage has the viewer standing on a wooded path. It makes you wonder if it took courage to get to this point on the path, or is it courage that is required to continue down the current path?
If the Courage piece isn’t the right trail for you, maybe The Path is a better route for you to wander.
Tokyo summers get horribly hot so I bought Dreaming of Winter for my own studio space to remind myself that cooler days will come soon. Which artwork in her Etsy shop, Chloe Tomomi, will you choose for your own space?
