The three monkeys in Yasaka Koushindou temple in Kyoto tell us to look (judge), hear and speak carefully! If only human can learn from these monkeys, the world would be a better place.
From today until the end of the year (only 3 months away—how time flies!), I will be drawing and painting a lot of pictures about Japan. My plan is to create a kind of picture book, with watercolor paintings on Japan. I have a direction in my head but I do not think my mood and my right hand that are mostly responsible for the quality of my drawings will listen to it much. *sighs* This is one of the pictures I will use in the picture book. Kiyomisudera in spring. The waterfall will grant you wishes so make a wish (or two) before drinking. And look who have the new (c) trademark! In red color even!
I’m going to Japan again this November for work. After about a week in Hiroshima where the workshop will be happening, I will go to visit some friends in Tokyo. I might not be able to go to Kyoto, my favorite place though I bet it will look magical in autumn. But we will meet again someday!
Tsubaki flowers stole the show when I visited Kiyomizu temple on the day Sakura flowers were still sleeping.
