Good morning from Japan! ☀️ (it’s actually R☔️I☔️Y today)
I’ve been packing my things up! I did start a few months ago but now I’m at the hard part of packing my art things. I took some pictures to show my recent work before they get packed away.
Do you remember this monoprint collage? I posted a photo of it in my Totoro wreath post. <click to redirect
The inspiration of this print came from a story from the Bible actually. The story probably most popularly known from the Broadway musical, “Joseph and the Technicolor Coat.” This is a scene depicting the end of the story where Joseph finds comfort in not only worldly possessions but in the love of his once-estranged family. At the end of the story, he seems to possess everything a man could ever hope to possess.
I don’t have a name for this piece (yet) but the idea of a wild garden in a sunny dessert reminds me of finding the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. It’s kind of unreal but the idea in itself is comforting, even refreshing. Maybe I should call it “Oasis.”
Another collage I finally got a frame for is getting packed away as well. I’ve already bubble wrapped it.
Back to packing! I’m wondering when Bisous will share more about her new book! 😬
