1. Golfer in Disguise

A Man Breathing: Visual Illusion on 100x80 cm. canvas

If you have witnessed in person Leonardo da Vinci's painting of Mona Lisa's enigmatic smile, this painting of a man will deceive your eyes that he is actually breathing normally like you. You do not have to be on drugs to hallucinate that he just suddenly raised his chest after suppressing breathing at his upper tummy. It seems to be spooky or crazy, but hey, optical illusion is nothing new and I painted the model with the intention of making it possible to make him come alive by breathing, so the breathing movement was not discovered by accident, it is intentional. I am not yet an expert of visual illusion but anyway, the illusion is only visible when you gaze at the actual painting in person and after a few minutes it will start to slowly breathe with you. I can't simply capture the slow movement of his body on camera.
However, if you are patient enough, you can look at the photo and try if it works on your computer screen. But I let you decide how the visual illusion was possible on this painting on canvas.

Moreover, you'll get crazy also how the bridge is constructed in this painting, your eyes will confuse you of direction, making you feel that you are riding shortly on a roller coaster, depending on how you look at it,  fast or slow, back and forth.

I don‘t even wanna mention how the other parts of his body pop out of the canvas as the main feature of this painting is the breathing.

This painting will be included in my art exhibit within the next three years, so if you happen to be there, I will let you make fun of it with your friends and witness the model breathe with you.

The model:

The man in the painting is Sir Thomas Beck. He is for me the handsome definition of a real white man: very tall at 6'2", with broad shoulder, with alluring smile, definitely not so muscular qualifying as a replica of incredible Hulk. I have painted him a little bit hot than he normally is in his photo that I tried to paint to make him have that extra sexy smile with a kindhearted appearance.

Why does this painting qualify as an innocentism art?

Well, I have made fun of Sir Thomas making him look like a cowboy stud belly dancing, when in real life he is a very respectable hardworking businessman with two children. He will cook for you a delightful meal but I do not think he will do the belly dancing for you, for me maybe, I hope so, haha! Pardon me.

Painting identification:

I originally entitled this painting the "Cowboy in the City" but he is actually just standing infront of a huge painting on the wall. I decided to just name it the "Golfer in Disguise" as he is wearing a cowboy outfit and holding an Iron 2 golf club which I painted extra long hoping that  the ladies will have other idea what it is. I let you decide if he is a cowboy or a hockey player or something else in this painting. The diamond necklace the model is wearing is his daily necklace in real life, so I added it to his cowboy look.

Aquarium prisoners:


THE SEAHORSES



If you had been given a chance to be a fish, what kind of fis

2. Aquarium Prisoner: The Seahorses

100x80cm acrylic painting

If you had been given a chance to be a fish, what kind of fish would you like to be? Me, I would like to be a seahorse. But you don't have to imitate me, go be a fish somewhere else hahaha! But let me persuade you to be a seahorse with me. Let me tell you why...

First of all, a seahorse is known to be a monogamous fish. So if I would be a female seahorse, most likely I would meet a male seahorse, who could appreciate my figure, and I could eat and eat without even brushing my teeth, because I didn’t have any, every after meal. It would be nice to finally find a male seahorse, who would not like to cheat on me and just enjoy being with me daily dancing tango to the waves of the deep sea and wouldn't it be so romantic being with a male seahorse in a place with just a little bit of dim light provided for free by the glowing
jellyfish. And if we wanna play hide and seek, we could camouflage the  environment, it is like changing outfit, I could be so fashionable any moment without spending a dime. And since the seahorse is not a great swimmer, I could rest assure that my male seahorse would stay with me nearby, and never would he swim away so far to be with another female seahorse. The best thing is: a male seahorse is such a gentleman. He will bear the hardship of pregnancy, taking his partner seahorse's eggs in his body until the eggs hatch, and after some time lots of little cute baby seahorses around to play with. Okay, maybe both of us end up in a separate aquarium, or be tortured to become medicine but it's better than ending up in a sealed can soaked in ketchup like sardines and later be eaten by a hungry man. I let you imagine what bad fate awaits sardines after the diner processed sardines for 30 hours in his stomach. Therefore, being a seahorse is so cool better than any other fish, but maybe I would also like to be a dolphin. If you wanna be a seahorse also, please email me.
Anyways, Seahorsetology is not my topic here, I won't tell you further how I got too many eggs to pass on to my seahorse partner. Now, I would  like to share you how I painted this art.

The green leaves are my imagination of how the leaves naturally move in water. The pinkish burgundy corals are my imagination of corals. I have no idea if there are such corals like those but it is supposed to be corals for me so don't complain hahaha! There used to be 5 seahorses in
the painting but I got scared of its eyes, it looked like monsters for me so to lessen my fear, I painted it over with something else. Those forever gone seahorses used to be at the upper and lower corner on the right side of the canvas. The blue background is yet to be finished with another coating, so what you are seeing here is another unfinished painting of mine.

Why does this painting qualify as an innocentism art?

Innocentism art is usually a portrayal of a victim and a perpetrator not only in human but also in another form. In this painting, if you look closer to the eyes of the seahorse in the middle, you will notice an expression similar to human with his eyes wide open, overwhelmed and excited for his desire to have something. The seahorse here has one big eye for his prey. His prey couldn't be visible, it could be hidden under the green leaves so don't bother looking for his prey on this painting hahaha!.

Painting Identification:

I always sign my painting with the place of where I painted it, because I have been travelling a lot and it will be hard to tell later where I painted it and by the way, all my paintings are exclusively innocentism art.  I entitled this painting "The SEAHORSES"

Feelings that can not be ignored: Love

3. Love: The Feeling that can not be simply ignored

100x80cm acrylic painting

This is my interpretation of a woman in love. It reflects my own feelings right now. Yes, maybe I am in love with someone because I feel like playing a musical instrument that I can't play. (Of course, I can play a regular guitar but not an electric guitar.) It feels like drinking beer even if I am not alcoholic. It's like I'm lying in a small inconvenient couch, the symbolism of my heart, which is much smaller than my entire body, where I am trying to fit in, as if my whole wide world depends on my heart, which is trying to comfort my whole body. And I have preferred to make everything possible to be transparent, (see the glass of beer, the silky fabric, the flower base.) The transparency is my symbolism of me trying to express that I want to show the whole wide world that I am in love.

The color blue is for sadness. My world seems like blue, it's still sad, yet at the back of my mind, I do hope that my world will be filled with different colors of flowers. I have no idea what kind of flowers I have drawn but it looks like all flowers to me hahaha! The flowers and its base are just based on my memory, no model.

I'm not saying I'm demonstrating a feeling of your own when you are in love, this is my own feeling which I am responsible for. If you need someone to share your feelings of being in love, please email me. I would love to hear your love story too.

I simply abandon this painting and put it on the side, it is another unfinished art of mine as I still have to perfect everything, but I signed it already anyway just like all my unfinished paintings just to be sure if it gets stolen, no one else will claim it's his. And you know what, in the back of my mind, it feels like changing my signature to his last name, but what is his last name anyway, hahaha!

When you are also in love, watch for a smiling face, daydreaming eyes, a head hanging just like this woman in this painting  (head hanging sounds not good at all, hahaha)

Maybe you will ask me why I didn't make the pillow underneath her legs a heart shape. It's because I wanted it to be more like not a thing for Valentine's day. It's too corny. The round shape should be ideal because I am probably in love the rest of the year anyway not only on Valentine's day. Sorry, that you missed me on Valentine's day this year, better try next year, hahaha!


Why does this painting qualify as an innocentism art?

Innocentism art is usually a portrayal of a victim and a perpetrator not only in human but also in another form. Innocentism may also portray an innocent subject, completely unaware that something strange will be done to him by something that is present in the painting. In this painting, it's simply a struggle between self and the body movement. One false move and her spinal cord can be really damaged which can bring her to the orthopedic. Behind the flower base will also be a snake which will head to the direction of the woman. (it is not yet painted) Yes. maybe when a woman in love gets bitten by a snake, it will stop her being in love, making her world black instead of blue, hahaha! ;-)

Cinderella: The Revenge

4. Cinderella: The Revenge

100x80cm acrylic painting

This painting is inspired by my friend, who wrote an article on marrying a rich guy. Oh yeah, another Cinderella story issue. The Cinderella story just remains a fairy tale all over the world and some poor women still live with the delusion of
being the next Cinderella, thereby rejecting their poor suitors because they are not rich enough??? How true is it in your area? But dating sites for millionaires are just getting common nowadays on the internet. Check out www.dearmillionaire.com.
And these millionaires look particularly for much younger women, sometimes as much as 35 years younger than their real age. There are some younger women agreeing to marry older guys in exchange for good life. They are called the modern Cinderella. It is not bad for my opinion. Everyone is entitled for the right or wrong choice, if his
choice has bad consequences he is the one who has to live with it anyway, whether he likes it or not and we can just choose to live with it too if we are affected or not. If taking a much younger wife is right for them, and everyone is happy, who am I to disagree and judge? And do you know why the odd of a poor girl being the next Cinderela is very slim? Most of these millionaires require you to be maybe not as rich as them but you must also be in the middle or upper class or highly educated and accomplished. Therefore, to marry a millionaire nowadays, do not stop to be a millionaire too. The aweful truth is most men are golddiggers too. I don't mind marrying a golddigger if I love and can afford him, lol!

The models:

The man in the painting is again the American guy, Sir Thomas Beck. In this painting, I have turned Sir Thomas into a hot wealthy middle aged guy driving his hot rod to his in-laws, dropping off his wife, Cinderella, who is still dressed in her filty old dress but carrying with her a birkin bag, the favorite bag of the richer female society.
Wearing her old clothes on her visit is a symbol of humility. Sir Thomas is obviously the Prince Charming in this illustration, though his head on this painting is only smaller than an inch.

Because Marlyn Monroe's beauty is legendary and popular, I have used her face and turned her into Cinderella in this painting. She's my favorite
female to draw.

Because the heads of Ms. Monroe and Sir Thomas were too small in this painting, it was a challenge to make them appear to look like them. 

Cinderella's stepmother and 2 stepsisters are just faces out of the blue. But I have made the feelings of dissatisfaction, jealousy, hypocrisy, anger, sarcasm, and beauty imperfection reflect their faces. The hot peppers in the bag of one of the girls are my symbolism of potential outburst of envious feelings.

Why does this painting qualify as an innocentism art?

This painting appears just another sarcastic humor about a poor woman, who used to be maltreated by the people around her for being poor, who hit it rich by marrying a rich older guy. This is just an illustration of how people who changed their status to a better level expect and believe that getting richer and more beautiful is a revenge to their oppressors and this seems to be the reality but for how long can one stay in good situation? I should say, enjoy it while it lasts.

If you have been following my site, you should know that I am trying to paint to rediscover art. The lesson I learned in this painting is that:
the easier to paint are trees and mountains. I can make the trees and mountains look really realistic and detailed, but hello, this is our time where our world is more exciting now indoor and outdoor, if you have time to make something like painting trees to the max, you must be real boring with no other life outside, haha! No offense, sorry but the modern trend of the majority is always "it's good enough! Who cares? Never mind. Move on. Go out without ironing your blue jeans. Hurry! My God, what's taking you so long, let's go!" That's why abstract painting is like heaven for artists, I guess. Oh well... 

The Honeymooners

5. “ The Honeymooners,” has made a bride’s daddy cry!

110x80cm acrylic painting

This painting has made a bride's daddy cry!

Uh oh! I wasn't expecting that someone would ever cry over what I have painted. I was just trying to add sarcasm in my work of art. I was so surprised by a bride's daddy crying over how beautiful I painted his daughter.  I think the father of the bride expected the traditional painting of a face or half body in the style of Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, but I am Helenna Jouja, LOL! Isn't that already boring? Pardon me, but Leonardo is my most favorite artist. Jesus Christ probably has already asked Leonardo to paint him in heaven too for the dead people to see, and Leonardo's Mona Lisa was so great you can't even believe how realistic Mona Lisa was painted. But the new generation has been obviously so bored with Mona Lisa already and has innocentisized Mona Lisa so many times in different ways without even knowing it, and has made fun of her by giving her breasts augmentation, for instance. You will find hundreds of pictures of Mona Lis online being innocentisized. And by the way, the abstract paintings do not impress majority of people anymore because it seems like only a spray of paint on the canvas, which anybody without the artistic talents can do. If this abstract thing continues for another decade, one day we will hear the people say, "there's really no more artists left!" I really think the crowd is eager to see another era of art and I hope the world will welcome the new theme of innocentism visual art.

Anyway, here you will find how I painted the groom and the bride. The size of the photos were all altered to fit the screen and it might not look pretty on your monitor but enjoy!"

6. The Dating Dilemma

100x80cm acrylic painting

This painting is a portrayal of some of the little annoyances lovers face in the world of dating such as: dressing up real good for a man only to find out he is more addicted to his cellphone than showing more interest in her;  dating a woman, who always asks her date to get her picture taken and so forth.

But I will not go into details discussing the dating dilemma of the modern world. I would rather discuss this time how the painting has  turned out how it is now.

This painting is a little bit complicated as I turned the sunset to a  cloudy day  and instead of "anybody could be that guy" Madonna thing, I exposed the man's cute face in the painting, as requested by the model. As you see the man here, it's just a man with a hat taking picture of the nature.

Below is an unfinished painting of this art. You may probably like the way it's gonna end but it is non-existing anymore as it has been painted over, turning it to a cloudy day.

I like the man's style, representing the blue jeans world of our century, so I decided to give it a try to illustrate him on canvas.  I need permission to expose his name on my website and I haven't asked him yet but this painting is for him. But he's real cute though.

The faces are real small though, about an inch big on a 80x100cm canvas. It was a struggle for me dealing with the canvas as it has so much small white dots, as if I am painting small faces on top of several website addresses with dot.com. I really hate it so much painting little faces on canvas because of these small dots. Small faces are just always looking like zombies with that scary skin flaking out and I hate going so thick on the face because in just one layer of painting, I get the exact face already right and adding more paint to it just make my work harder because paint always run in so many different directions you don't wanna tell you  where. Moreover, It is not simple to paint a real person and turn him into "a honey I shrunk the kid" thing. The woman is a little bit easier to paint as she is non-existent, no exact face to copy. Of course, she has to be overdressed on this ocassion to add a little bit of controversy. I still need to perfect the art of painting sea and clouds, but i don't want it to look like the way other artists paint it so it has another effect to it. I'm not saying my style is better but I hate it turning something into exact reality. I want it to be only like "we're almost there" but not.


Why does this painting qualify as an innocentism art?

Innocentism art is usually a portrayal of a victim and a perpetrator showing sarcasm. In this painting the sarcasm is evident on how the man teases his date taking pictures of the nature instead of her. The dissatisfaction is evident in the face of the woman.

Painting the blue Veyron Bugatti to Red

7. Painting the blue Veyron Bugatti to Red

100x80cm acrylic painting

If I use the red tone Bugatti Veyron as a model to paint a red Bugatti, it would be easier for me, but where is the challenge and fun so I use the blue colored one to come up with a red one. This is not my first time to paint the car Bugatti, I actually painted another Bugatti model, which appeared in a small photo in my painting called the "Material Girl." Bugatti is my favorite dream car to give as a dream gift to my boyfriend. Well, i hope one day I will have the money and of course, a real boyfriend first. But tell me, which should come first: the money to buy my dream car for him or have a boyfriend first?  haha.

The model:

The man in the painting is again the American guy, Sir Thomas Beck. In this painting, I have turned Sir Thomas into a hot wealthy Arabian guy in disguise as a shepherd, bringing a girl a bunch of diamond gifts from Tiffany (those light green small bags he is holding in both his hands.)

Why does this painting qualify as an innocentism art?

This painting appears just another sarcastic humor about a rich guy trying to get a girlfriend by buying him gifts and showing her his wealth and at the same time trying to go down her level. But there is really more to it than meets your eyes. I may not narrate the story behind the painting well in English but I painted it with an intention of adding simple metaphor or symbols to the images as follows:

STAIRS AND BUILDINGS

Stairs - the symbol of going up and down. Its uneven structure without railing tells you to be careful of the path you have chosen because you can either fail (go down) or succeed (go up).


Succeeding: I have painted the stairs to appear that it's looking like built inside the light green building, but it is actually the stairs leading to the brown building. This staircase is beside the next
light green buidling which appears to look like built inside the light blue building. The stairs being surrounded by buildings are the symbol of one being surrounded by obstacles despite being already on top. It suggests him to be careful of his success because even if he has already made  it to the top, he is still surrounded by unforseen events that can cause his downfall. Of course, he can use the stairs to go up again. And since the actual staircase is not actually inside the other buildings, the symbol of obstacles can also be just possibilities or warnings of any downfall.


The light blue building is the symbol for going up to another level as in "the rich goes richer." However, if you will look closer again to this light blue building, you will see below at the right side that it has an optical illusion that will make you feel dizzy after staring at it continuously for at least 30 seconds. This is the symbol for dillusion, because a previously successful person becomes already unrealistic, still trying to live a life he once had even if it is no longer affordable, once faced by another downfall.


These light blue and dark blue buildings separated by dark violet wall are actually parallel to each other, meaning it is built at the same line. If you measure the line where both building stand, it's a straight line but the optical illusion I designed makes the dark blue building appear a little bit farther. It is a little science project I added to this work of art. 

The colors of these above mentioned two buildings are the symbol of the character of a person. A person can be the same person, but if he changes his character he will look like another person to someone. 

The gap between the light blue and dark blue buildings, illustrated by the violet wall, symbolizes the effort one has to exert to separate his old self from his new self.


Failing: There is really nothing so special about failing. I would not recommend anyone to fail but it looks like it is a sad part of life of everyone. Being at the bottom of the stairs, there is still green pasture after all, but it could be very limited. Moreover, it can also be all dried up down there, absolutely nothing, just like an empty gray driveway. It is all up to take the necessary steps to try to go up.


The Brown Building Small Door - the symbol of challenge. It is a challenge for anyone to enter a small door bigger than his body. The uneven blue color surrounding the small door symbolizes the hard and easy challenges which can be either be more or less.

The brown color building represents the material wealth, when added with a small door it means, the hard challenge to accumulate wealth, but the staircase on the right side attached to the brown building indicates that through step by step moves you can eventually become wealthy.


The Color of the buildings -  The color of the 4 buildings represent the 4 seasons. The strong contrast of the building color is the symbol for the separation of the rich and the poor. So you will
notice that the painting color combination crashes. The buildings all look unstable because nothing in the world is really permanent.


The Arabian Man - He is the symbol of opportunities. His covered head tells you that the upper end is uncertain or hidden. The body parts symbolize the truth, which can either be naked or covered. The gifts he is holding on both of his hands symbolize lots of small opportunities and one big opportunity. His smile tells you that the opportunity smiles at the right person. And he is heading near the stairs which symbolizes that opportunities are just around the corner to be taken with you.


The Muslim lady -  is the symbol of uncertainties.

The unknown hidden face is the symbol of any person faced with all the realities surrounding him.
The bucket she is holding is full or empty, nobody knows - is the high society‘s symbols of hypocrisy and secrecy of how one masks himself to the public. She is just staring at the light blue building, dizzy by the optical illusion, and uncertain of what is coming ahead but lots of options are available if she only looks around her and does something worthwhile.


The red car - just the symbol of common wealth which can either coming from black money or from it being red the symbol for aggressiveness and luck.

Where to find the painting:

Stating all the symbols associated in this painting, I will let you guess why I consider it an innocentism art. So this is all about what is in my mind while I was painting it. I do not just paint out of the blue but I want the concept of the painting to be understood by the majority of the public, so just simple, nice and clear, just like the songs of Elvis Presley. Another Michael J. Pollock's art might be too expensive yet so compicated that even a child can paint, so let's go back to the basics. I hope you understand this art now how I see it. You might have another interpretation, you are welcome to email me and tell me about it.

Breast Cancer Awareness

8. The Dreamer

100x80cm acrylic painting

LATEST NEWS
2019 IS BREAST CANCER AWARENESS:

LOTS OF BEAUTIFUL FEMALE BREASTS ON CANVAS COMING UP!

Painting female breasts is so challenging as it is like painting the beauty of the female anatomy. However, it can be viewed as negative by dirty mind or beautiful by artistic mind. Either way, we can not ignore anymore that a lot of women around the world are unfortunately dying because they can not afford the proper treatment once they are faced with breast cancer. The battle is on for those woman suffering from breast cancer, who can not afford chemotherapy and herceptin treatment or any other advanced treatment because:

the country's social system could not afford to support a good health benefits for the society paying taxes.

Therefore, lots of breast cancer patients struggle to come up with enough money to cover their medical bills to hopefully add few more years to their lives. As a supplemental support for these women, I will be painting lots of beautfiul breasts on canvas this year 2019. Part of the sale will go to the Breast Cancer Society.

The models:

The faces of the girls are product of my imagination only. If someone accidentally looks like any of the women in this painting, it is only coincidence. My God! that would be scary if anyone really looked like anyone of them, haha! The only known model in this painting is Miss Marilyn Monroe from the movie "Gentlemen Prefer Blonde." Oh! do they? Thanks God! Although she is not yet so blond in this painting, I still have to work more on her hair.

In this painting you will find:

7 girls

14 eyes, you think it's 13 eyes but if you look really good at it in person you will find 14 eyes;

9 breasts, my symbolism for woman who is left with only one breast either on the left or right side of her chest but despite of it, she is still surviving because she afforded the proper treatment. But how about the other ones who can not? Are we heartless and selfish to not even care about them even if they are not related to you by blood? They are probably mothers, beautiful women, your daughters, your sisters, your cousins, your grandmas, your friend, your loved ones or even you, pardon me. If you are not helping them, well I am.


Why does this painting qualify as an innocentism art?

This painting appears just another sarcastic humor about a rich woman (Marilyn  Monroe) in the midst of simply beautiful women with basic needs. As Innocentism art means a portrayal of cause and effect, you will find that one of the girls is actually day dreaming. No matter what she thinks about, that is the effect of the cause.

My never ending painting

9. My never ending painting

100x80cm acrylic painting

MY NEVER ENDING PAINTING:
THE NEUTRAL SOLUTION:

It is not about Chemistry having pH of about 7, neither it is about acid nor alkaline. It is about the battle of the people's choices of whether to wear fur coats or not during the cold wintertime. I won't discuss so much about the issue of fur, it is just too broad of a topic. But in this painting someone in the crowd has found a neutral solution to the issue, find out which one he is.

I said this is my never ending painting because I think this is the hardest piece I have ever encountered as an artist as the people are too tiny. Most faces ranges from 1.5 centimeters to 3.5 centimeters and my paintbrushes just do not cooperate and so does the texture of the canvas. I was getting frustrated already getting this done.
What I learned from painting this is that when you want to paint tiny faces like these, make sure you will not use the canvas made of cotton or linen or whatever, but I think you should use a real smooth flat surface such as wood. Otherwise, it is just too much of a challenge and you can go real thick on the faces just to come up with a flat surface which will just imbalance the remaining surface. Just try to imagine using tiny strokes to come up with real tiny faces looking like Marlyn Monroe, Catherine Zeta Jones, Angelina Jolie and some people important to you. I think I need a few more years to perfect this art. In the meantime, I like to move on to the next art.

Maybe it is a little bit hard to comprehend what this painting is all about but those women in bikinis are meant to be figures made of waxes.
And Marlyn Monroe here is just a wall painting in nearby building infront of the hidden stairs where people came from. The horseshoe is my hidden code for my biggest crush this time. Think a little bit complicated, it is a code! It could also represent the letter U but it is not exactly U, maybe it is T or V, W, eX, whY, See, or it could also be you, haha! This is just my free style painting and how it is drawn here should not make sense to anyone.


Why does this painting qualify as an innocentism art?
In this painting you will find the reaction of different kind of people when told about something sarcastic. You will find the look of confidence, arrogance, ignorance, and even the look of having no sense of humor, and some happy people having fun with sarcastic joke. I let you decide what else you can find here.

Lethal Predator Awareness

10. Lethal Predator Awareness: The Japanese Hornet

100x80cm acrylic painting

This painting is a simple portrayal of an unforseen event that can occur to someone innocent about her surroundings. Most of the time, we are so excited to go to beautiful relaxing places but forget to research about the potential danger awaiting us there. Like for example, there are places with beautiful expensive houses around such as in Klosterneuburg in Austria, but their surroundings are infected with ticks (zecken in German), which survive from sucking blood of living things like human and animals. These ticks have venom, virus and bacteria that can infect human real bad, but is treatable by antibiotics. However, what if the place you visited have other insects which are proven to be more lethal than venomous snakes such as the Japanese Hornet? 

Have you ever heard of a Japanese Hornet?

The Japanese giant hornet (Vespa mandarinia japonica) is a subspecies of the Asian giant hornet (V. mandarinia). It is a large insect and adults can be more than 4 centimeter  (1.6 in) long, with a wingspan greater than 6 (2.4 in). It has a large yellow head with large eyes, and a dark brown thorax with an abdomen banded in brown and yellow. The Japanese giant hornet has three small, simple eyes on the top of the head between the two large compound eyes. As the name implies it is endemic to the Japanese islands, where it prefers rural areas where it can find trees to nest in. [1] In Japan it is known as the ōsuzumebachi (おおすずめばち(大雀蜂、大胡蜂)?, literally "giant sparrow bee").

Workers forage to feed their siblings. Their diet consists of a wide range of insects, including croppests, and for this reason the hornets are regarded as beneficial. The workers dismember the bodies of their prey to return only the most nutrient-rich body parts, such as flight muscles, to the nest. There, the workers chew the prey into a paste before feeding the larvae who in return produce a fluid consumed by the workers. This fluid is known as vespa amino acid mixture (VAAM). The fluid enables intensive muscle activities over extended periods, allowing them to fly 100 kilometres (62 mi) per day and reach up to 40 kilometers per hour (25 mph). Synthetic VAAM is being produced artificially as a dietary supplement to increase athletic performance.
In many Japanese mountain villages, the hornet is considered a delicacy when fried.[1]

Bee predation
In Japan, beekeepers often prefer European honey bees because they are more productive than
the endemic Japanese honey bees. However, it is quite difficult to maintain a captive hive of European honey bees, as the hornets will often prey on the bees. Once a Japanese giant hornet has located a hive of European honey bees it leaves pheromonemarkers around it that quickly attract nest-mates to converge on the hive. A single hornet can kill forty European honey bees in a minute; a group of 30 hornets can destroy an entire hive containing 30,000 bees in a little more than three hours. The hornets kill and dismember the bees, returning to their nest with the bee thoraxes, which they feed to their larvae, leaving heads and limbs behind; the bee larvae are also taken to feed the hornet larvae. The hornets also eat the bees' honey. The Japanese honey bee, however, has a defense against these attacks. When a hornet approaches the hive to release pheromones, the bee workers will retreat back to the hive, leaving an opening to allow the hornet scout to enter. At a given point, the bees emerge from their hiding places in an angry cloud formation containing some 500 individuals. They form a tight ball around the hornet that acts like a convection oven when the bees vibrate their wings to direct air over their bodies, warmed by their muscular exertion, into the inside of the ball. The interior temperature of the ball rises to 47 °C (117 °F). The hornet can survive maximum temperatures of 44–46 °C (111–115 °F), but the bees can survive up to 48–50 °C (118–122 °F), so the hornet is killed and the bees survive.[1]

Venom
The Japanese giant hornet is large and fearsome, but it is not particularly aggressive unless it feels threatened. It has a venom which is injected by the 6.25 mm-long (quarter-inch) stinger and attacks the nervous system and damages tissues of its victims.[1] Tests with mice find the venom not to be among the most lethal, having an LD50 of 4.1 mg/kg, which compares to the deadliest wasp venom (to mice) by weight of Vespa luctuosa at 1.6 mg/kg. The potency of the sting is due to the relatively large amount of venom injected.[2] Being stung is extremely painful and can require hospital treatment. Asian giant hornet stings in general can cause anaphylactic shock in allergic people, and can be lethal even to people who are not allergic if the dose is sufficient. Advice in China is that people stung more than 10 times need medical help, and  emergency treatment for more than 30 stings. The stings can cause renal failure.[3] Thirty to forty people die in Japan every year after having been stung,[1][4] which makes the Japanese giant hornet the most lethal animal in Japan (bears kill zero to five people[5] and venomous snakes kill five to ten people each year).

Why does this painting qualify as an innocentism art?

Innocentism art is usually a portrayal of victim and perpetrator.  In this painting the woman lying on her belly is the victim and the Japanese hornet landed on her right leg is the perpetrator.  I painted the hornet a little bit bigger than it's biggest size to emphasize the presence of the predator in this painting.

Painting Identification:

I always sign my painting with the place of where I painted it, because I have been travelling a lot and it will be hard to tell later where I painted it.  I entitled this painting "The Japanese Hornet"


Painting size: LxW 80x100cm


Where to find the painting:

This painting will be in my art exhibit within the next 3 years. If you want to purchase it in advance, you have to agree to lend it to me for the show but I do not intend to sell any of my paintings yet.

I do not intend my art to be something similar to how an image appears on photographs or; something that will look real. Whatever it looks to you, that is my style of art.

Thank you for your interest in my work. Love you all. Kiss.
