japonisme: moments in the day

moments in the day

in costume, subject, and layout, the paintings below embody some of the touching, beautiful gifts we received from the japanese. in addition, we are introduced to three new artists. how can we not know their names? is their work less worthy than those we know? why do i keep asking this question? perhaps instead i should continuously celebrate treasures found.

I am excited as I am going to meet a 90 year old Asian American artist today who does wonderful water colors etc. Perhaps she will let me take some photos for my blog.
