Daffodils

It is a bit early to paint daffodils. I happened to find this pot at the market, I bought it, thinking it might bring Spring smell.

My favorite chrysanthemum

Chrysanthemum is my favorite flower, not only because they bloom in the season I was born, mostly because I had seen many spray mums in U.S. and people there decorated their yards and gardens with a lot of colorful mums.

Probably in Japan people don't favor mums so much, but they pick them anyway, because they are supposed to display mums while Ohigan (*Higan (two periods of seven days with the middle day falling on the spring or autumn equinox); the word higan meaning "the other shore," or, in Buddhism, nirvana. ) and other religious events.  Or, they may get the idea of nationalism and maybe remind of imperial family. Japanese don't treat mums casually, but foreigners do, after I found that fact I love mums very much in my own casual way.

きょうはお休み

将太もあたしも昨日から具合がよくなかったので、今日は一日ごろごろしていた。関西では高校生媒介の新型インフルエンザが注目をあびているので、少々神経質になったのだ。実際は熱もたいしたことなかったんだけど。

そんで今日は画材買いにいきたかったんだけど中止、もうキャンバスストックがなくなっちゃったよぅー

 

海シリーズはとりあえず描く予定のがもうひとつ。明日は買い物いけるかなー

Finished!

As I had set my goal, here I had painted another. I might be going to paint one more of Vietnam scenery line, but I already have another idea in my mind. Please wait to see what I can come up with!

 

The tree in this painting was very unique, I mean almost any trees I'd seen in Hanoi were nothing like the ones I saw in my life, yet this tree was outstanding among them! 

Shota was calling this kind of tree "Obake-Yanagi" which means ghost willow, but since it actually isn't a willow I modified to "Ghost Tree".

Another street, painting in May

I am willing to stick to one thing. But it is not easy, since I keep getting interested in one another, or I simply change my mind easily. Now I decided to keep painting the sceneries of Vietnam a little more at least 2 more.

 

This is also the one from the photos I took in Bat Trang, I only painted rear part of the photo, do you recognize which one I used??

I regret that I could have taken more photos in Vietnam so next time if I travel anywhere I will keep it in mind, "You may be going to paint this scene, miwa!"

One thing that makes me feel better is that I can paint a little quicker than I did in April…as long as I am not tired of what I am painting.

Painted Bag

最近作ったバッグ Piggy Tote Bags I recently made

 

ぶたさんはときどき描いてます。

数年前に作ったオリジナルバッグを持って買い物など行くと、ときどきほめてもらえることがあり、それに気をよくして(^^*ちょっとシリーズものにしてみようかしら。。。。と考え中。

「拡大写真」も取ってみたのでのっけます

 

 

もうひとつは「Piggy Farmer」。こっちのほうを先に作ったです。

 

隠れた工夫が、この「持ち手」!

ちょうどいい持ち手が手元になかったので、麻紐を四つ編みにして作ったんですが、いい感じに丈夫にできたので気に入ってます。しかも超安上がり~^^
