I just got back from a wonderful spontaneous trip to Guam to visit Anson. My first visit to the island and I loved it. Unfortunately it rained the days I was there. We spent a day driving around the island exploring and I could not believe how much of it resembles where I grew up in Papua (Indonesia). It is now November and I realize the month of October really flew by. It's hard to believe it's really over. But I have been looking forward to this month for quite a while now and for many reasons...
- It's one month closer to having my love home again. I miss my guy.
- My mom is visiting all the way from Florida. I hope our colder Japanese weather isn't a shock. We plan to return to one of my favorite activities with her, quilting!
- Design Festa is this month, November 8th and 9th. If you're in the area this is one of the last chances I will have to share my work here in Japan.Design Festa is a biannual international art event featuring any style or medium of art. And it's huge! There will be 3,300 booths this year with 11,000 exhibitors. I will be selling prints of my work so stop by my booth, C-146. Held November 8th & 9th, 11:00 AM - 7:00 PM at the Tokyo Big Sight West Hall Central
- In the middle of the month I'll be headed to Bali for my first Bali Illustration workshop with so many amazing artists. It's a very small workshop with only 30 students so I'm really looking forward to the one-on-one time with the instructors. I still have yet to select which 3 portfolio pieces to bring for critique. Speaking of portfolio pieces, have you seen my latest?
So much going on and I still have so much to do. Currently have several painting videos on hold, waiting for me to edit and add an audio track of some sort for you. I love sharing the process behind each of my paintings so you should see some more posts soon regarding the ones I've skipped.
