International Women’s Day

We have returned from our wonderful trip to Japan. I am still sorting through dirty clothes and half emptied suitcases. I have done a lot of sketching but I also found that there was so much to see that I couldn’t see if I was sketching just one thing…hard to find a balance. I have posted a few sketches on instagram, so if you don’t follow me these will be new to you….

Today is International Women’s Day, a global initiative to recognize women around the world as strong and equal, achieve equal respect and to encourage the support of all ambitions. I would also like to recognize that on March 3, Japan celebrates Hinamatsuri, also called Doll’s Day or Girl’s Day.

I am not sure how I am going to continue….I have a lot of work to finish in the sketchbook as well…and it is sort of becoming a bit of a scrapbook as I sort through the receipts and maps…..
