I'm volunteering/interning/I don't know at my local museum's art school. I made some sketches of their garden. There is so much wrong with them, but I'm also learning so much. I should've done stuff like this years ago!

Bon dance sketches, but none of dancers. And--ahhhh--markers!

Lace lace lace lace lace. This is a lace lanyard. I really like the camera straps you can find in Japan that are made of leather-like material, patterned cloth, and lace. There's a good balance of texture, color, and pattern. Yumm. It inspired me to make a lace lanyard.

I'm thinking of getting back into Etsy. Maybe I'll man up and deal with shipping.

Soooo, what have I been doing these past few months? Finding a summer job, going to a wedding reception, playing Pokemon Conquest, going to Bon dances, feeling the urge to buy and learn how to play a shinobue (Japanese flute). It's so easy to neglect the internet.

This is from Maui when I went to the wedding reception. The wind was whipping the sand EVERYWHERE. I used oil pastels, but it's difficult to mix the color you want. (I really like the female in the foreground's colors, but she ruins the composition!)
