Practicing Butterflies!

Hi there!

How have you been? We have snow in Japan, and the weather is really cold. I started knitting for the first time in three years! I am knitting a pair of mittens to my mom.  However, my kitty, Jiji annoys me a lot when I knit. I can’t focus on knitting. Even so, I am enjoying knitting and playing with Jiji at the same time, lol.

Today I want to show you my butterfly plate.  I bought lots of painting supplies at my Italian painting teacher, Patrizia’s and to get used to them, I started practicing both with her painting supplies and techniques. I chose butterflies as my first practice subjects.

I know I need practice more to paint butterflies, but I am happy that my first butterflies look good. I have more ideas about butterfly paintings, and you will see more this year.
