Pendant I made of Juno the husky mix using various colors of polymer clay and the eyes are glass beads. The back is a translucent color and gives appearance of beach glass. It was fun to make!

Creative Again and a New Pendant

Originally posted on Art-Z Jewelry:

IMG_0647I finally made a new piece of jewelry after what seems like an eternity. I was beginning to think I’d lost all desire to create.  Thanks to my talented daughter, Sam (of http://shinrinart.wordpress.com) I was able to create this dragon pendant.  She drew the dragon, free  hand, on a circle of brass for  me.  I then etched it, riveted it onto a section of copper and made this pendant.

Our big move to the country has been more of a  change than I anticipated.  The weather here changes dramatically from minute to minute.  We’re quite high up in altitude now and we were actually below sea level before.  The sky is spectacular with stars and clouds like I’ve never seen before.

And the moon – wow,  was it always that big!

Ronin Yoshino Illustration – Summer Clovers

New illustration I drew of the character, Yoshino, from my manga series Ronin Yoshino. She takes a break fighting and relaxes on a white clover meadow. I was trying to reflect the feeling of a warm sunny day.

Heian Noblewoman and the Koma-Inu – Sumi-e Illustration

Young woman of a noble family in formal Heian-era Japanese dress called “kazami.” She stands in her garden greeted by a komainu (supernatural dog guardian).

Koma-Inu are the lion dogs which guard temples in Japan. Their use is similar to gargoyles by repelling evil spirits. It’s believed that dogs can see ghosts and can ward them away. So, sleep with dogs in your room!

I drew this today with my Japanese brush in sumi-e (ink painting) style. Did you know the character Sesshomaru from the anime/manga series InuYasha, is based on the Koma-Inu and his “mokomoko-sama” (the fur over his shoulder) is supposed to resemble the mane of a Koma-Inu? ;)
