Poise

I've photographed this angel so many times. She's in one of my favourite places - the cemetery and I cannot believe she is still standing. I definitely think she has poise. I drew her in pen & ink and then layered a photo of some old stone underneath the illustration. The grave is of a 13 year old girl called Boo who died in 1904.

Deeply moving piece. The underlay of texture creates a fusion of past and present. Stirring and captivating.

Oh, wow, Nicky! The moment I saw this, I thought cemetery. I'm drawn to old cemeteries. How sad for this little girl named Boo. So young. It's not right.

Did you know, here in Japan, people picnic under the cherry blossom trees when they are in full bloom. They come and picnic during the day or after work in the dark. One of the places people picnic is Aoyama cemetery, even at night!
