Forgive me for posting this as a blog rather than as a comment, but I didn’t know any other way to share an image of my own art. Keiko, thank you so much for introducing us to Kumada Chikabo, an extraordinary human being. I had been depressed concerning my work and reading the interview with this wise man was like listening to the voice of a mentor. “I am like a leaf, floating down a stream.”
Some time ago I focused on painting the intricate details of the animals around me. These baby iguanas were done in the Yucatan, for instance. Kumada Chikabo has reminded me that perhaps it is time again to focus on that which is close at hand.
For those of you who missed Keiko’s link to the interview, I urge you to click on http://make.pingmag.jp/2008/09/30/kumada/ . It is a lovely way to begin your week. Thank you again, Keiko.
