* The inspiration of the artwork:
I met on Halloween 2008 Marie Yokota from Japan,. who showed me what a true friend is. She became one of my best friends over the few months she lived with us, she had to return home to Japan in may 2009. She inspired me to be a better person and to share my art with the world. I miss her companionship and inspirational talks. This is a small remembrance of her from me to everyone! She is the reason I am here and sharing my art today, before her it sat hidden away in storage and without her it would very much still be there.*description of the artwork:
the pencil details behind her represent the chaos of the world around us all and how we each take part in shaping it, her hand holds a ball of crystal to represent focus and the other hand transforms to branches showing her hand in life. She walks among the clouds being an inspiration to others dreams uplifting their spirits. the outfit she wears is close to the costume she wore when we met <however not quiet so showy>. She is well known in japan as a master flutist which explains the musical notes at her feet and the flute attached at her waste.
* I hope you enjoy my attempt at showing her how she has inspired me to try again, and share myself with the world.
