    Phonse McGrath was born in Coleraine in 1949, one of eight children. From the age of thirteen, Phonse has attended the Mulleraterong Day Training Centre in Hamilton. He is a self-taught artist who has a great appreciation and love of cityscapes, which feature in most of the artist’s paintings and drawings.

    Phonse started drawing with simple blue pen on white paper on the kitchen table and developed his own style of expression through lines and later colors.

    This exhibition focuses on Phonse’s works of art depicting cities around the world. Pictured above, San Francisco, and below Melbourne.

    Relax Time ☆

    日本列島に台風が近づいております⚡🌀☔

    皆様、被害なく無事に過ぎていきますように✨

    個人的に今週末は大事な用事があるので、出来れば進路をそれて欲しい‼️

    と願うのは私のワガママでしょうか?

    今日は

    先日私が数年前から大好きで自宅で使っているフレグランスランプの2つめが届いたので、テンションupの投稿です🎵

    こちらのフレグランスランプ、優れもので香りをただ楽しむだけではなく空気中の有害なバクテリアを除菌消臭し、更に抗菌効果を高めてくれるそうです🎵

    キラキラ可愛い見た目に一目惚れして近くの百貨店で購入したのが数年前
    何年経っても好きです❤️

    我が家に夏祭りの金魚すくいの鯉(金魚だと思い込んでたら鯉すくいでした💦)が、8匹いるのですがペット臭などにも効きます。

    注 効果の感じ方は個人差があります 😊

    専用のフレグランスオイルを使うのですが、今夜は爽やかにグリーンバンブーの香りにします✨
    夕飯の焼き魚のにおいが消えるかどうか、またご報告しますね🎵

    最後までお付き合い頂きありがとうございました☆

    What is Art in Japan?

    When you think of art in Japan, what do you think of? Do you think of modern art such as the immensely popular and commercial Manga? Do you have a more traditional vision of ancient characters with the beautiful brush strokes of ink on handmade paper? Art is many things to many people and that makes it so wonderful and an expression of freedom, and as we like to say at BlueboardArt, a place to begin a dialogue, a topic to enjoy a conversation and share ideas and thoughts. Art communication.

    I have always gravitated to the colors and skill of the woodblock print, the Ukiyoe, a genre of Japanese art that was very popular from the 17th through 19th centuries. As much a means of communication as it was an art. I could explain more but I will leave that to Wikipedia who has done such an amazing job.

    So I am excited to introduce a wonderful piece by the BBC titled “The Art of Japan”. This article, although published in 2012, covers so many types of wonderful art that you can enjoy from this amazing country Japan. Calligraphy, Weaving, Manga, Pottery, Woodblock, and Ikebana are all touched on with suggestions of how to further follow up on them. I highly recommend that you read this article as an introduction to see the scope of what is on show with art in Japan, where in essence, everything revolves around art.
