Daffodil Full
2017.03 Sumi ink and Japanese pigments on handmade paper mounted on fan

It's a bit late but it was such a delight seeing a multitude of these daffodils growing along the river at the start of spring. No wonder they're a sign of new beginnings! (-_^) for a closer view of this #handmade #fan check out my #etsy #onebrightpearl

Fox and Rose Noren
2017.03.25

Sumi ink and japanese pigments on 100% Hemp - Kibira. 60 cm high x 135 cm wide (45 cm each panel)


I got inspired by a well-known illustrated storybook to make this Japanese noren curtain, any guesses which one it is? I loved making it, and seeing it is always a nice reminder of what the important things in life are - friendship, love, and a lot of other intangible, immeasurable things :)

For a closer look, check this out on my #etsy #onebrightpearl

Grinning fox, Japanese fan hand-painted
2016.10 Sumi ink and Japanese pigments on handmade paper mounted on fan

Weather is turning colder, maybe that's why I'm painting furry creatures like this #grinning #fox more ;) Despite the weather, I smile about the prospect of seeing snow sometime soon! What about you, care to share what you have to smile about these days?

check out this and my other #handmade #fans on my #etsy #onebrightpearl
