It was another spectacular day to be outside, yesterday.

"Working in Clay"

Photo: Y. Iijima




Today I received a photo taken from my last ceramics session,
earlier this month...

This class is rare,
so I try not to miss it.

There is something very theraputic
about working with clay...

I made another personalized kanzashi container.

"Demons Out, Good Luck, In!"



Black Ink, Watercolor

On Washi Postcard




Today, is Setsubun (節分), here in Japan...

This particular object made a compelling subject to paint;
a small but delicately carved, wood "oni"(devil)...

I painted this at my last Etegami session, on 1/10.



Yesterday, was my 6th recording session.

Our producer sat in, for these recordings.

It was a very successful date.
