New Japanese

I have stuff I am supposed to be doing but I know my muse, and if I have an inspiration and do not go with it I will never be able to work on anything else. I bought a very cool Japanese style frame and was inspired to do art to go in it. This is what I came up with; "Tale of the Ketsune", 9 x 17, Acrylic, Micron pen, ProWhite and watercolor colored pencil on Canson board. Original and prints available. Picture 58.

Finally A Laurel Scroll

OMG, I just got the replacement for my Laurel scroll (which was not right) and it is AMAZING! I will post a picture of it soon. Unfortunatly it got a bit damaged between England and here and I am trying to make it flat before I attempt repairs. Rick Williams (I don't remmber his SCA name but and trying to get it) did it as a gift and I could not be more pleased with it!
OK, I had to take a picture and share, I love it so much. Based on a Fresco (by Mantegna from The Camera degli Sposi).
