Hi there!

Sunflower, drawn after walking home along a street with sunflowers taller than me.

I didn’t know what words I would use at first, but the way the leaves turned out sort of seemed inviting, like she was saying “Hi there.”

Also, it just seemed appropriate — I haven’t posted much lately, beyond what’s been in my inbox. I have finally had some time and inspiration to paint , and just wanted say hi again!Sunflower.HiThere.07-20-13

This second card uses a favorite Japanese word of mine, nonbiri (のんびり), and I used a bamboo dip pen rather than a brush to paint the black ink, resulting in very blobby lines.Sunflower.Nonbiri.08-25-13
