I just want to say Thank You to Cloud 9 for featuring one of my prints on her blog. And Thank You to LDPhotography for including one of my paintings in her Etsy Treasury of ACEOs.
Shadow Shot Sunday
A couple of years ago, one of my ESL students from China gave me a gift on the last day of school. As she explained why she had chosen this gift for me, I could feel the tears welling up in my eyes. The word for frog in Japanese is "kaeru." Kaeru also translates into the word for "return." Souvernirs with frogs are given to travelers to wish them a safe return from their journey. And she wanted to wish me a safe return Home to my Family. The red frog is braided thread and sits on braided leaves. I keep it hanging in my art studio. On a side note, frogs say "ribbit" in the States and they say "Gero" in Japan. For more shadow shots, please visit Hey Harriett's blog.
