I’m excited to be facilitating a short watercolor workshop in my community this year, as part of a series called 「えいご あそぶ LOVE」— Here’s the flyer:
I wanted to take a moment to show the painting that I made for the art show mentioned in the last post. It's called Second Sight, and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.
I have to say that I'm really glad that I attended Ash's book release party. I had the opportunity to hear Ash's powerful reading of her poetry, look at beautiful artwork, and meet other interesting Portland folks. I also felt deeply touched by the kind feedback I received on my painting while at the show. My painting will be up along with other lovely pieces until April 30th, so if you happen to be in the area, definitely stop by!
UPDATE: As it turns out, my painting sold! I'm not sure who bought it, but I was filled with joy!
I wanted to share the good news that I've been invited by local poet Ash Good to have a piece of artwork at the release party for her new book "These Things Will Never Happen Quite Like That Again." It will take place on Friday, April 14 over at Mink Boutique on Hawthorne. Ash will read from her book, and all the artwork will be up for sale with part of the proceeds going to help women in Oregon. If you're in the Portland area, it promises to be a fun evening!
