Drawings and Studies

Rock Study at Chikatsuyu
pen and ink on paper

We had a wonderful hike with Tiega in May along the Kumano Kodo. I started the study on location and finished with a photograph from our friend Jesse.

Park Study at Wakayama Castle's Park

Pyar and I had to go to immigration last week. Here is a sketch from the park on the grounds of the Wakayama Castle.

Inui san is our wonderful neighbor. She has a salon on the corner just down from the station and Okuwa. On our way to Big U a couple of weekends ago, she was outside trimming in her garden. We stopped to pet her sweet dog, we named him Mr. Pudding. We usually say hello in our little bit of Japanese and during this stop she gave us hydrangeas (ajisai) and parsley (paseri) she said as a thank you.
So, certainly, we want to thank her for being such a wonderful neighbor.
