august08Hello blog! It’s been a long month! I’m not going to type too much but I have some things I would like to post!

ハロー!みなは元気かな~?

august01I did this skull study before flying off to America for two weeks.

まず、2週間でアメリカに帰った!帰省した前にこの頭骨の絵を描きあがった。

My parents got a puppy recently and I finally got to meet her, so here she is making a guest appearance haha. We went to Maine for a few days right when I got back, but unfortunately I got a bad cold and fell asleep a lot due to bad jetlag.

両親は子犬を飼うことができた!!家族と子犬と一緒にメイン州へ行った。ホテルからの眺めはきれいだった。残念ながら風邪を引いて時差ぼけに苦しんでたぁ~。

august okRight around when I arrived in Maine, Lughnasadh passed by. I didn’t do much to celebrate though, but I did complete this sketch!

メイン州にいるとき、Lughnasadhっていう日が経った。Lughnasadhとは、昔の収穫祭だった。あまり祝えなかったけど上のスケッチを描いた。

After Maine, we headed back home to Massachusetts. I had a lot of fun seeing my friends again! I haven’t been back for 8 months but time really does fly and January doesn’t even feel that long ago. I visited a beautiful town on the water called Rockport, where I used to sell some of my art! There are so many small shops in this area and if you’re from Massachusetts, please go take a look and support them! I would love to sell my work at stores there again someday. The weather was so perfect at home; in Japan it’s still very very hot and humid.

久々にアメリカの友達に会えてうれしかった!前回のアメリカに行ったのは1月だった。。。8か月前だけど、時間をたつのは早いね。友達とロックポートっていう町に行った。この町は海の隣だ!海を見ると航海したくなるの!笑2年前にロックポートにある店で自分のアートを売ったものだ。いい雰囲気のある店いっぱいし、機会があればロックポートへ行ってみてね!!

マサチューセッツは涼しくてよかったな。日本はまだ蒸し暑すぎ!!

This was taken at a store called ‘Floting Lotus’ that sells yoga clothes, silver, singing bowls, and these really cool handmade cushions!

フローティングロータスっていう店でこの写真を撮った。あの店でヨガウェアや素敵なシルバーアクセサリーなど買える!

august11Right when I got back to Tokyo, I started thinking of ideas for a new project. I have a lot of traveling coming up in September and I am hoping I will have enough time to plot and plan and hopefully start something new in October!! But I’m always sketching down thoughts and ideas in between~

東京に戻ったあと、アートについて新鮮なアイディアとかを考えはじめた。9月に遠征の予定いっぱいあるので10月からたくさんの絵を描きたいなあ!!

忙しいわりに、いつもスケッチを描いてるの!

august12Here’s a photo of me in a yukata from this weekend. I was so excited to wear this before the summer ended! I have one already but I wanted something new, and all I had my mind set on was one with giant peony print. To my surprise, the first store I went into had this beautiful yukata and I was so happy! I wanted to end this post with this photo as a memory of a good day.

週末に人生で2回目浴衣を着た!いい思い出だからここに写真を載せまーす*^^*

Thank you for reading!! Please stop by and visit again!

いつも読んでくれてありがとうございます!また読みに来てね!
