Finally back in the studio after nearly three weeks away, 2 in Japan and 1 in San Francisco. So nice to be back. Easing into the old routine, some painted pebbles depicting Otafuku, the Japanese deity of Mirth and all thing female, and her companion, an old man. (The two are often depicted together) plus a couple of foxes. Foxes are traditionally messengers of the gods so they are considered to be very good for business. I do not speak from personal experience but am crossing my fingers here. Acrylic ink on small stones. Eventually, when the weather warms up I will spray them and use them for chop stick rests.
