“ Colors of Spring ”

“ Pale Pink… ”








It was another spectacular day to be outside, yesterday.

The plum blossoms of Kyodo No Mori park, beckoned…

The colors, the warm sun, combined with the scent of the plum blossoms
in the breeze, truly brings a feeling of Spring approaching…

For Valentine’s Day,
I decided to “revisit” my Digital piece from 2000,
Raining Hearts”.

All rights reserved



“ Reigning Heart "
Digital



It may sparkle like
stars in a night sky, but it’s
not on my shirt sleeve…


It’s worth, I discern-
Superficiality
holds a broken key...


This Valentine's Day,
a small, but important mes-
sage: I am enough!

“Someone To Watch Over Me”

“ Plum Blossoms, Warm Day ”

Black Ink, Oil Pastels, Watercolor
on
Washi Paper

9.5 X 10.5 inches
( 24 cm X 26.6 cm )




I took advantage of the unseasonably warm temps, today!

I packed up my painting gear,
and bicycled out to Kyodo No Mori park…

Without a heavy coat, I was able to carry all my gear successfully.

I will return to the park again, very soon, just to linger,
and photograph the lovely blooms…

The season for plum blossoms at Kyodo No Mori
is Feb. 6th, ~ March 13th…





Till Next Time...

“ Red, Awaken… ”

Black Ink, Watercolor
on
Washi Paper

13.5 X 12.5 inches
( 34.7 cm X 31.7 cm )




Today was my Etegami/ Calligraphy session with the group.

I chose the Gloriosa (Fire Lily) as my subject…

I haven’t attended since last December,
it was a productive session…

Hamada-sensei helped me with the calligraphy/kanji (“Aka”), meaning “Red”.

It was a warm day today, after an early morning jolt;
an earthquake in the form of a strong jolt, then gone...

I'm hoping that'll be it, for awhile...

it feels like Spring is not far!





Till Next Time...
