Rose garden [My moleskine art]
I stamped an eraser stamp on the moleskine sketchbook. I wondered what to draw. I draw roses on this.
My holiday lunch time
I drew the scenes that my lunch times on my moleskine sketch book. The lunch time is very important for my lovely life. I’m Japanese, so I love Japanese foods. And, I like Italian foods, Chinese foods, Western dishes and Fusion cuisines. Today, I ate the wheat noodle with tempura. The wheat noodle is “UDON ” in Japanese. This was very good. On weekday, I usually take a lunch near my office. On holiday, sometime I have brunch on my house. These illustration is my holiday lunch menu.
I loved seeing all of these beautiful stray cats receiving some dry food on a cold day.

This is one of the 88 miniature temples on a mountain path behind Ninna-Ji in Kyoto.
I stopped momentarily to catch my breath and do this quick sketch of a charming little six sided temple. This is a mini pilgrimage for those who cannot do the real one on Shikoku. It is called Hachiju Hakkasho and is a lovely hike off the beaten tourist path.

I have always been fascinated by these stone images in Japan. The peaceful faces, the red bibs and the wool hats are so charming. This group sits in the cemetery of a small temple behind the Kyoto Okura Hotel. I visit them twice a year.
