I walked past ufo gallery in Central today which had the most gorgeous paintings on display. The exhibition featured intricate ink and mixed-media prints by Nanami Cowdroy, a Japanese-Australian artist.
My absolute favorite piece was 'Tsuru', which was a beautiful black ink print of three paper origami cranes. Early Christmas present I'm thinking? Oh how I wish.
Interestingly, someone has actually used the print as a design for a tattoo.

You can see the actual artwork here. It's been awhile since I last fell in love with any artwork. I long for my past arty days. Maybe it's time to start painting again...
