The Maiden Voyage of Japonica

My wonky calligraphy lives on! This is Rives BFK paper which is a bit too textured for calligraphy, not to mention my inability to form letters.

Last year in May I did a quick sketch of the daffodils. I like that one better I think. I’m not sure. The image is only 4 cm so tiny flowers. I think I blended too much on the yellow. But they are recognizable as daffs!

Anyway, I got going and did my first page in this journal, that’s the main thing.

I was doing better on my practice sheets so I’ll have to carry on.

      We must start a Wonky Artists club!

      Oh yes, I remember that pool and champagne around the pool at New Year’s. My sarong consists of an old yellow blanket, wrapped about me for most of the year over my clothes. I am perennially cold.

      One of the things about being in different hemispheres is this strange turnabout of seasons.
