kawaii has come to mean ‘cute or adorable’ in japanese, for more info click here

I hope you like this cute little geisha with her puppy dog. Going for a little walk down the main street, she closes her eyes for a moment to take in all the wonderful sounds and scents and enjoy them more deeply than when eyes are open and distracted by all around her. It’s a little ‘mindful’ moment in her otherwise busy busy day! Practicing ‘mindfulness’ is a very helpful key to staying calm and peaceful throughout each and every day. Kawaii!!!!!!

    FABulous, Karin- I am loving all this new work. Thanks so much for sharing ;) xxx

  • Aw thank you so much dear James!!! I still have around 40 new works to paint and upload, on a roll now :). I’m enjoying it, and it’s interesting to see how they turn out, some are a lot harder to paint than others, the details drive me crazy sometimes I wonder why out so much detail in, lol…this one was one of the easier ones, I’ll leave the harder ones for days when I have more energy :))xxx
