Shiroi Matsumoto, my Japanese friend, has redesigned her website. She has posted some new work on it that is very, very nice. I like this one called "Birthday". Shiori told me that she actually drew the sketch for it on her own birthday. Shiori is quite an accomplished painter and she is taking part in a travelling group show in Europe that is called, " Venus and the Female Intuition" organized by SALBRU publishing (I think it will also be a book). It begins in Denmark this month and travels to the Netherlands and then, finally to France in August.
(Peter van Oostzanen on deviantart has more details about this show.)
