Gingerbread man, Oil on wood board, 18”x24″


1 in stock


I love to make gingerbread man cookie for my family. I thought about painting it. But after looking through tons of gingerbread man paintings online, I try to avoid realistic style. In my mind, the gingerbread man has a naughty character. Just like in the story “Gingerbread man”, he says “Run, run as fast as you can. You can’t catch me. I am the gingerbread man.” I am looking for a way to express the naught, childish and happy feeling of a gingerbread man. One day, the feeling comes to me. I draw a digital sketch on tablet and refine it on a cradled wood panel.
I also paint a “Gingerbread lady” to make them a couple. Otherwise it seems unfair for gingerbread man to be alone during holiday season. 😀

I hope you enjoy this series. And please feel free to contact me with any question.

Although I have tried my best to match the color of digital profile and the actual product, the color might still vary depending on different monitor settings. Please be aware of this fact.

Thank you.

My paintings are an outlet to express the imagination I have inside my head that I can not put into words. After trying many mediums, I always find myself coming back to paint and brushes. In my current artistic practice, I use oil paint and mainly create portraits of mythical creatures and animals transfixed in the shifting colours of seascapes and landscapes. There is a natural spirit and magic to these creatures and their energy draws me in. Choosing to paint these creatures as real living wildlife rather than abstractions, I use bold and vivid colours to express the imaginary intertwined with reality, finding magic between the seams. Using a saturated colour palette, I create bold and striking imagery, contrasted between foreground and background, subject and landscape, and light and darkness. Weaving their bodies and the surface of the landscape into each other through organic forms and flowing brush strokes, I find beauty, strength and innocence in these creatures that reflect my inner world.
