i am back home from t a few fun days in chicago wedding dress shopping
with my son's finance, eating and enjoying this lovely city.
the early morning collages that i started to show in the last
post have continued in my altered book.
with each collage comes a story.
the process has taken me deep into my memories in a way that is compelling.
i feel like i am writing and collaging the history not only of my own
family but of the history of the japanese americans from the
early nineteen hundreds when they immigrated to the united states.
i am integrating what i have researched, images, memories and family stories.
i create them before the sun comes up, the quiet time of the day.
i find the world is mine to dig deep and that i am surprised at
what comes to me at that time.
a limited palate seems to depict the stories best.
if you are interested in reading more, they are all posted on instagram.
i visited the art institute in chicago. when i am there
i am always drawn to the breathtaking marc chagall stained glass.
thank you for visiting today.
wishing you a lovely week enriched by art, family and friends!

the art community!
