This is a piece meant to represent the changes in Japanese fashion/culture. From the old to the new. I googled Japanese street fashion and got these images.
The Geishas are from google and Art Chix. I did all the circles because I thought it looked kinda Asian.
The Kanji symbol says 'Changes'.

I have been experimenting with paints lately. I have never painted a picture before, so I'm kind of creating by the seat of my pants here.
My DH is fascinated with roosters. I don't know why. We don't have any. But he loves them. So I googled a pic and this is the start.

I'm using water colors.

Hi Mary! Thanks for popping in!

Your Japanese piece is such a cool concept and wonderful imagery! I love every inch!

And look at your painting! It is not an easy thing to master, I've tried and failed many times, and your are doing fabulously! Great work and I admire you expanding your horizons and abilities. I am trying to teach myself to play the piano - may not be my forte, but it's good to learn new things.

Enjoy your week!
