here are my contributions :
Alone in Tokyo. 6"x12". Mixed Media on Wood. © 2010.
Daydream Believer. 6"x12". Mixed Media on Wood. © 2010.
both are framed and floated with a black matte.
one of the impressions that i got looking at the photos of street fashion
and what i know of the traditional japanese garments, and my impressions from being in tokyo,
was the patterns and layers - in both tangible/physical and intangible/mental ways.
that was my departure point of how i got to these pieces...
plus, the patterns were so much fun to paint.
the anal side of me (whatever little is left over after being dominated by my laziness)
was having a ball painting with a tiny brush over and over.
