Anchante, The Japan Blue

 

A hand-dyed Indigo scarf…

My tribe in Japan made it for me from the scratch making the solution with fresh indigo leaves.

This enchanted gift thrilled me, excited me, and shook me.

Why, because there is no clone / copy of this indigo scarf. The solution and weather, and other conditions bring this only beautiful result on the textile, and you will never make exactly the same result in this blue.

Anchante, and thank you for coming to me!

完全なる手作業、手仕事による100%天然の藍のスカーフを日本から受け取りました。製作者である、私の部族仲間の愛を感じながら。

この世にたった一点のスカーフ。宇宙レベルでの出会いに感謝。

A piece of work of the day 26

So this is another piece of work for which I had drawn this for the same subject.

Again, I struggled with drawing hand.  I would have drawn it visible but in translucent, but all the combinations of the figure, the lines, the choice of the colors, hue, shade…made it a little too invisible or hard to see.

Well anyway, this was my best I tried for the work, and it will be great if this leaves something in you.

Everyone has beautiful soul in yourselves, but many of us got lost to keep it shined in the busy and complicated day to day life.  Our modern life makes us easy to build worries and pressures, and get lost ourselves by fatigues.

With my sincere hope of my friend’s recovery from depression…

Thank you for stopping by.

A piece of work of the day 25

I have drawn Jacarandas with pastels for my friend’s birthday.

It should be looking like a bit plain work for the occasion.

It will be the last birthday for her to celebrate it in Sydney, under full bloom of Jacarandas, so I hope she will like this.   She will be a resident of Northern Hemisphere next year, where there will be framed in coloured leaves when  she gets her birthday  😉

A piece of work of the day 24

So I first had got base idea of this when I read something about identity crisis sometime ago.

I started drawing but then I got stuck developing the image (and how to express with pastel and pens), so I put it aside for a couple of weeks.

The other day, I made a home-made Japanese mochi-sweets for someone who loves it.

Such a weird, while was munching it with a scoop of ice cream served together, a kind of rough image came back.  Eventually it ended up as below.  Magic of sweets did it.  :p

The idea behind this is, that everyone has the unique and beautiful diamond in the soul.

A piece of work of the day 23

This is the complete version (I had posted ‘in-progress’ shot in here) of which I drew on a card for my friend’s farewell who leaves Australia after her 25 years of life at down-under.

With sincere love and support, and big thanks to her on our friendships, I am sending off on her who opens a new chapter of her story in the journey.

Mumbles at the end of September

At having last day of September, I decided to taking a second to look back.

There were a couple of things that’s made my habits and life changed.

I have got new people who came into my zone.  I have got number of things that occupied some big part in my head and I had to manage some of things.

Meanwhile, blog post that I had been done regularly was getting out of my routine, the frequency of posting in here this month happened rarely.

That new people came in means, some people who had been with, were gone off from my zone, no matter what circumstances drove it.

I didn’t do enough photography, nor, drawing either, this month.

And I finally started drawing on the last day of September.

I have started because a very good friend of mine who lets me build bonding with has decided to leave Australia.

The below photo was taken today.  As of now, I wouldn’t even know about what would this card be completed with.

Tomorrow is another day.  Thank you September!

Phoenix.

I had had drawn a Phoenix on a card for someone, and it turned out to be the beginning of some journey of exploring expression.

This is my 2nd Phoenix. I will come back time by time for my further try for imaginations and expression.

In short, I am very pleased to have made a time for a bit of art side.

Thank you for stopping by.
