I’m also starting a new one…Trying to get two done before my show in September…BTW, September 9th!!! The official date of my show!! @Open Ground Studios in Seaside, 1230 Fremont Blvd.
Admittedly it is not one of my typical designs, I guess, but this one I think is more for my mom than anything else 🙂 She told me to do one with cranes because she likes the elegance they embody (I’m guessing….XD). She’s a bird lady 😉
This snow crane is a symbol of Japanese culture and is also known as the red-crowned crane (for obvious reasons…). It represents luck, longevity and fidelity. When the snow crane mates, it mates for life and when a snow crane migrates, it will fly for hundreds of miles, a real show of strength. It really is an important symbol in Japan and with a bright red crown on a snow white brow, it’s hard not to imagine the Japanese flag.
Sadly, if I’m being completely honest, I don’t think I can finish this piece before my show in September…BUT!! There will be a nice work-in-progress piece to show 😀 So I guess that’s fine…plus it’ll be done for sure by the open studios tour at the end of September!! People will just have to come back and see the finished piece 😉
