This was the card i made for my friend’s birthday back in June.
I brought some remaining wrapping papers or origami craft papers I collected, cut or hand cut them into small small pieces, then glued them randomly filling the inside of the heart template.Such a fun experimental work as it got.💕
Kayse and I met in Tucson, Arizona in 2019 for the first time. I visited her and her partner Gary Fleck seven months later in Arkansas, then shared another sweet time in Sedona last month. Gary Fleck is (well, it’s not just me of knowing him so) the legendary crystal mining engineer who does crystal cut, polish, and make jewelries from the design.
Kayse produces number of blended essential oils aiming for healing and/or pleasure, all of which holds high frequency and struck me something when I first scented one of her range, named ‘Dolphin Joy’.
When I took Mermaid Magic on my hand first time and scented it, the world of the oil took me into so-called Kayse’s world, which was fantastic and warm, supporting, being embraced with love. It was literally magic.
The scent was enough to urge me to express how I felt in pastel drawing.
Festive period 2019 was something very unusual for me, because of the months-long bush fires that flamed up in Australia, particularly east coast and south area over the four states.
All graphics and updates cast by the media were of heartbreaking, and the blaze did not set back on New Years Eve and New Years Day.
Temperature on Saturday and Sunday last week soared to record-breaking high, which coincidentally some source was saying, apart from the subject of bush fires, that the earth took the closest position to the sun in her orbit.
This piece below was drawn while watching the circumstances, with the inspiration driven by my sincere wish of rainfalls and / or something good of element of aqua, embrace all of the burned areas and heal them. Yep, the motif is completely unrelated to the subject, but this is how I could send my love over.
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.
