My first attempt at making larger jizos, 2 friends asked me to make larger jizos for their gardens, they pushed me to new
demensions….if you want to see more of my jizos go to my etsy site http://www.PeaceGarden.etsy.com
Jizo’s are often found along walking paths in Japan. Stones are placed at the feet of Jizo in memory of a loved one or as an offering of thanks to Jizo for watching over loved ones and travelers.
Had a nice workshop this week…polishing up drawing skills.
We worked on eggs on colored paper as one exercise, it was fun =)
Katonah is a favorite place of mine…full of lovely old homes and lots of sidewalks to walk my dog Smudge =)
Here are two drawings I did while giving a workshop today. While teaching I have to work very fast so I don’t neglect
those who have come to draw with me. This is very good for me because it forces me to let go of control and draw in a
more responsive way. Please go to my Nature Journaling page to see their work…it was a great morning…
Bobbie drawing at Lasdon…….
Ginko at Lasdon….beautiful breezy sunny day!
Norwalk, Washington Street down by the water….bus stop
These drawings have all been done on my mac with the program linked below….there is a spider in the program that is lots of fun to play as well =o) I enjoyed drawing these pieces with no plan, no forethought…..free drawing…I often return to flocks of birds and patterns in nature….transfixed by the swirling schools of fish and flocks of birds…I never tire of them….hope you enjoy them =)
A favorite place to be among the lily ponds, bamboo and jizos……..
