Someone Impersonating Me

I guess they say imitation is a form of flattery... But, somehow, I did not feel that i am flattered at all. Recently, a friend asking me if I have moved to Iowa. And, I asked him why he thought that way?
He told me he saw it from my twitter profile. Lo and behold, I saw someone has stolen my Dorothy's painting and post it as his/ her profile picture. He/ she linked the profile to this blog (at least, I am getting some additional traffic to my blog) and posted stuffs on twitter claiming to be me.

The only thing is instead of fransKUSUMA, the impersonator used fransKUSAMU as the username.
So, please be on aware if you want to follow me on twitter. Make sure you know which user is the real one -> (

Longer session Plein air Painting

Normally, I don't come back to the same location for my plein air paintings. I like to paint real fast and, particularly in love with dynamic brush strokes in paintings. I also sometimes struggle to keep myself interested doing one painting or artwork for too long. But, every once in a while, I would do it when I want to push my skill further.

Over here, I will post more polished paintings, in which I come back to the same location the next day (or several days) in order to finish the work. Please check this post often, since I will update the same post with new paintings regularly.

@ Leo Carillo State Beach, Malibu CA

Some Stuff I Did Over the Summer

Summer has not been treating me well nowadays. With the temperatures easily go to triple digits, I struggle keeping my composure while painting these. But, in the end, I still love doing this. I hope you guys enjoy this update. As usual, any questions or comments are welcomed. These are all done in gouache.

This will be my second time to be included in the annual (I got in last year for Spectrum 17). I felt very honored. Congratulations to everyone who made it to the list this year.
