Japanese Stone Lantern

5" x 8" journal page, pencil sketch, watercolor paint, rubber stamps. Set. 20, 2012.
I painted this from my original photograph, I like the way the background shrubs washed out. I also love the rubber stamp symbols of beauty and hope. The lantern is in a garden around the block from my place, I have photographed it several times, in different light. I decided NOT to go over it with my black pen, I think it would really help define the leaves etc. but I like the soft look too.
