'blue' - watercolor and brush pen bamboo drawing by 

I like to work with things that I have around the house or with what I find on my walks. I found this old japanese/english dictionary thrown in someones trash. I turned it into a sketch book. This drawing is from page #89.

I studied illustration and design at The Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. I am married and the mother of two wonderful boys; one is a college graduate and the other is currently attending college.

I am inspired by the elegance and simplicity of japanese ‘sumi-e’ and Chinese ‘shui-mo hua’ painting. I love the grace and beauty of bamboo.

    there are so many parts of this that I love. the image. that Blue. that it’s a found dictionary page. that it is still a book. that “Bias” and “Beware” are entries. … Love this :) happy day and finding treasure wishes

  • thank you so much. I choose the pages randomly…but maybe they choose me.
