       J = Outline of Japan
 A = Vulcano Fuji
P = Water wave
                      A = A path of cherry blossoms 
                      N = NO NUCLEAR POWER!

Land of rising sun.
A pathless path.
What a task!

For all of us. 

I pay my homage to Japan.
I've taken a brush and black ink and red. Then I stood in a kind of 
obeisance in front of the sheet of paper and draw.

This week's drawing challenge No. 9 'letters of the alphabet' is hosted by upbeat Nadine of woolfenbell. She's got the path to all the other letters from all over the boundless world.

Next week's drawing challenge will be hosted by flowery Milady Stephanie. I'm looking forward to the theme 'blossom'.

  5. Ariane, beautiful , thoughtful lines. strong black and that red! so meaningful and inspired. i thought of Japan too! it took my breath away, really.

  6. I just read Rachel's letter and I get the same feeling here. The anxiety of Japan and what happens to humanity vs our common hope and the beauty of life. Let's live our lives according to our beliefs, take care of each other and keep on finding beauty in our everyday life.
    See you, dear friend.

  7. I hope I didn't express myself badly, I meant to say that we all are sad and worried about what's happening in the world and that we need to remind us to take care of earth and our fragile lives. Each other. Remember what's important.

  8. Your Japan was beautiful and the wonderful description....perfect. I can't wait for your next...

  9. very forcefull evocation and indeed what folly to have nuclear plants in such a lovely and such an unstable part of the world. i would hope people would finaly learn their lessons...
