[Drawing In The Dame Lorraine]


[Fair Use; These are images from the internet i used in my Zetti]



[Notes]

1
Dame Lorraine: a mas character played by the 18th and early 19th century French planters, who would dress up in elegant costumes of the French aristocracy and parade in groups at private homes/yards during Carnival. It is now a portrayal done by both men and women and falls in the category 'Vintage Mas' Even children now portray Dame Lorraine. For children the costumes are simpler.

I Had to look up Zetti Art for my response to Three Muses this week

[BEST WISHES FOR A BRIGHT AND CREATIVE 2018]




[Nengajo 2018]

New Year fireworks -
a frightened dog runs
helter skelter

© gillena cox 2018

#Nengajo: The Japanese may not send very many Christmas or birthday cards, but they do send a lot of special postcards called nengajo that are delivered on New Year's Day. New Year's is a very special holiday in Japan - it's probably the biggest item on the calendar of annual events.

## Akemashite Omedetou Gozaimasu: A Japanese phrase which means Happy New Year




[HAPPY]
