Adding color makes the drawing come alive. I drew the tiger lily with my left, nondominant hand- larger and faster and like the results. Learning how to use watercolor paints is exciting. Oh, what summer fun!

She even included photos from my trip to Tokyo. It's a very special gift that will look great on my yellow studio wall. Thank you, Cynthia!

I printed this mermaid during a Gocco Print class taught by Shu-Ju Wang at the Focus on Book Arts Conference in Forest Grove the end of June. The Japanese orginally created the Gocco as a children's toy. Artists now use it to create books and fine prints. I'll play with it this summer and have more prints to share. Check out Shu-Ju's art at http://www.fingerstothebone.com/. I love her layered prints and paintings.
