In the first week of March last year, coming up to one year ago, my husband and I went to Japan for a week. It was a holiday that we were very lucky to take, as a week or two later, travel restrictions came into effect because of Covid19. As it was, whilst we were in Japan many of their indoor attractions had closed down, children were not at school, people were working from home and crowds were not allowed at sporting or cultural events. At the time, it didn’t even occur to us that similar restrictions would be introduced into Australia a few short weeks later.
Although Japan was a lot quieter than normal, there was still plenty to see and it is such a beautiful country to visit. Although Tokyo was an amazing city, I particularly enjoyed Kyoto with its temples and gardens.
As is normal practice for me, I took way too many photos and once home, created a photo book to remember this holiday.
In July of last year, the City of Prospect was calling for residents to submit artwork for their annual Community Art Exhibition held in the Newmarch Gallery. I decided to submit something which represented our holiday to Japan, and created ‘A Week in Japan’ – a colourful Wall Art piece with a selection of sixteen different images depicting a wide variety of sights typical of Japan.
The exhibition long over, this Wall Art piece is now hanging in the living room of my house. I love looking at it, and it serves as a reminder as to how lucky we were to have this experience – particularly with overseas travel now being off the cards for the foreseeable future.
Wall Art is a fabulous way to display a selection of images – travel photos, family photos, pet photos – anything really! Click here to view samples of what I’ve created.
If you like the idea of having your own piece of Wall Art, using your own images, but unsure of how to go creating it, please contact me to discuss how I can help.
