Experiment with silhouette against the light. Not easy to create that effect with wet ink, but I am glad I tried. Used couple of inks on old paper. Used Italian language here.

I wrote “memories” in Japanese. It has sort of nostalgic feel to it, how I see it in my mind, in sepia, through the shadow of eyelashes, a bit fading, but happy. In reality, when we tired and hungry, sometimes, getting of the train it is a sweet pleasure to pick up here something on the way home, sushi or soup and eat (with a lot of pickled ginger for me) and watch TV or just chat about today’s happenings or plans for tomorrow.
I used ink on old piece of watercolor paper. I used up all ink on it and now up to another trip to my big ink bottle, a happy event.
Tuna melt. It is more like a journal page, I didn’t mean to write my thoughts, especially on 2 languages, but no matter how much I try – I can’t avoid emotions, because color, smell, taste, shape, joy of being with someone you love, happiness of being able to do and feel – triggers emotions and urges me to draw.
I used ink and Kuretake pens and one Durer pencil on amazing Saunders Waterford Watercolor Paper. This paper made me breathless.
One of the hopeful mornings, one of the happy breakfasts, delicious sandwich with smoked salmon and eggs halfway scrambled, halfway omelet, sunny conversation, brief hug and happy painting. One of the days to remember. Ink and Kuretake on Winsor & Newton.
Going back and forth to Long Island I was stopped by the flaming skies, it is near fire station. I am looking at the sky more than ever before, amazed by humongous symphony someone is playing every day for us, people. It changes quickly, leaving trembling melody in my heart. So I was trying to capture the moment. Used ink and Kuretake brush pens.
Red truck on the roadside.
This red truck belongs to the building inspector of Greene county. I saw how much it is loved and cared by his owner. I used ink and Kuretake pens.
Breakfast scene with BonJour french press coffee maker and cup of cereal with blueberries and almond milk, but mainly about joy of seeing each other in the morning and exchanging couple of sweet words. Ink and Kuretake.
This happy little car I met in Brooklyn. It says “Twins” on the side, because of 2 guys, musicians, who perform on events and gatherings in the community, I was told. It was in the shade of the tree, but bathing in the sunlight, spilled between leaves. It made me smile, I felt hope.
I used ink and Kuretake pens on Arches board.
