I visited a thrift store, a retaining wall, and peeked into the windows of closed shops. I took pictures, and borrowed from some of these. I found as n interesting Oriental plate in Unexpected Treasures thrift. I walked along Dunsmuir and also Sacramento Avenues in Dunsmuir, California.
From the sketchbook of Linda M Smith, the view from my bed. That thing with the colorful beach towel draped on it is my Casio keyboard. I have a sliding glass door leading out to a sunny, fenced porch.
Here, I am borrowing several symbols from Asian culture, including a Japanese basket seller, Lucky Kitty, and Buddha. I added some origami paper. This was originally intended to be just a basic outline for an 18 x 24" acrylic stretch canvas painting.
