The Japanese Influence

In my last post I spoke of my love for Japan and its people.

I also love the art and the culture of this amazing country. It has influenced some of my art.

These are some of the ATCs I did some time ago. I've learned a lot about collage and layering since most of them. Still, it was a fine time to revisit them.

Such a heartbreaking time. It is always good to reflect on the beautiful images and art Japan has given us.

My 12 year old
is crazy for
anything Japanese
and my husband has
colleagues in Japan,
so this really hit
home for us. The
two of them are
even talking about
making a trip to
help with rebuilding
efforts, once things
have calmed down and
there are organizations
setting up such endeavors.
Your beautiful ATCs
are just that ~ lovely.
Happy Monday, Jeanie!

I said most of what I had to say about the crisis on the previous entry. Here, I'll just say, "Beautiful!"

I just found this amazing art/life juxtaposition. If the link doesn't "take", I'll email it to you - I never can remember what blogger will and won't allow ;-)

I really have no words to express how my heart breaks for the people of Japan

so glad your friends are alright...the pain in their hearts must be all encompassing ...still not the words I am feeling...

Beautiful ATCs, Jeanie! Isn't it fun to take out your older artwork and look at it from time to time? You can see how you've grown but also how good you were!
