Poetry reading, Chiho & the rebirth of the world 

Hello Bobbin!

I wanted to do some more outdoor painting…but the drizzle/ rain prevented such from occurring…and so the story goes…

(Insert BBC News Voice) The amount of rainy/cloudy days in Seattle, Washington on average, gets 220 days of measurable rain/cloud coverage a year…
Making normal spring/summer out door activities, an elusive wish rather than a practical reality.


(unless you are a real Seattle-ite and do Everything in the drizzle/rain then the sideways wind induced horizontal rainfall can’t hold you back!)
I’ve lived in Seattle, Washington since I was 8 years old…and love rain…but do grow very tired of it at times haha. While a thunderstorm or heavy rainfall will motivate me, and afford me a dark and stormy night writing/painting ambiance, those are few and far between…its the usual grey drizzles-like a gigantic sneeze -filling the air and dominating most of the weather regime, that does nothing for the ol’  self motivation. I default to hermit crab mode & I want to just burrito wrap into a fuzz blanket and let Netflix console me.
But, somehow I fought this feeling (plus I’d binged watch far too much over the weekend) And
 I decided to venture to a nearby coffee shop and get some poetry reading done.
The poet Wisława szymborska poems move me. 🙂

The disappearing/ reappearing act that the sun began performing sparked the idea that a museum visit was in order and I made my way to the Seattle Asian Art Museum for one of their Free Admission Thursday sessions (they do monthly). And I got to marvel and adore the work of Artist Chiho Aoshima
A stroll through the gallery was an instant remedy for grey Seattle blues. 🙂 Her work was the perfect blend of fanciful and hauntingly beautiful with a hint of aspirations of greatness .
I put a few of my favorites below. (Click on them to get a better view:) )
hope you fancy them as much as I do!

-Bisous ❤

                     

Bee-zoo, Bee-zoo

Ello from Seattle!

My name is Bisous.(Bee-ZOO) Its French… don’t over complicate it…
I currently live & explore around the very laid-back, Coffee addicts migration area, but scenically beautiful city of Seattle, Wa. For those who don’t know THIS is what Seattle NORMALLY looks like 😀

Ever so often, my desire to explore intensifies & I hop on plane to quench my thirst for adventure…and curiosity. I LOVE tea, it – like exploration- has proven a great ally against the forces of evil know as creativity/writers block! I’m an aspiring author, but I’ve recently picked up water coloring and will be opening an Esty shop.

I’m a fan of Thunderstorms and reading nooks, Swinging on swing sets and photographing tiny details in nature. I enjoy watching Game of Thrones ( epicness) as well as eating a yummy pieces of cake… doing both activieties together is a colossally amazing experience 🙂

Its me…BOBBIN!

Ello from Japan!

Its me Bobbin ❤ , short for TheFlyingBobbin. Now do you see a tiny spool of thread with wings flying around in your mind? Good! (^_^)

Just a little intro to who I am and what I do:
I moved to Japan in 2010 and live in the port city of Numazu
(that’s a picture of our tsunami gate below)

I came to Japan after graduating from Art school in Seattle and am still trying to figure out how to be a “real life artist”.
I adore cats, traveling, fashion, food, greenery, and arts and crafts. I’m constantly obsessed with a new craft project and once I’m done with it, I move on to pick up another skill!  My most recent obsession has been cross stitching.

My guilty pleasure is Starcraft Heart of the Swarm!
And i’m slightly afraid that I spend way too much time playing the game! Yep, I’m even in a competitive clan.

Question of the day: In your opinion what does it mean to be a “real life artist”?
