And here is the lovely painting I received in exchange. The red Kanji written across the building reads KUMA (Japanese for Bear), and the image perfectly captures the the feel of the small town streets us Kochi English teachers see every day. In truth it reminds me most of the street right outside my best friend's house in Nakamura City. Marie I love it! Thanks for the great swap. To all other artists reading I am always game for another swap!
See you on thursday with the results of the firing! Have a great week.
