what I've been up to - Japanese temari
I'm still drawing in sketchbooks — and starting to work with colored pencil — but the majority of my creative time has been all about temari. Temari are thread-wrapped embroidered spheres; a traditional Japanese folk art that has become more widely practiced in the West over the past few decades. I've sort of been all about temari for the last six months. If you're interested in taking a look, here are some links:
I hope to post some sketchbook drawings soon! Meanwhile, enjoy the colorful three-dimensional temari! Sales benefit Kiva.org.
