Flowers & Girls

It’s spring!!!!!!

Sprouts are growing, and flowers are blooming everywhere.

It’s a beautiful and colorful season. I’m celebrating as painting Flowers & Girls.

“Poppy Girl”: I painted same design, image size 11” x 11” in Watercolor & Gouache before. I love the design so much. I wanted to paint big in oil. So I painted on 24” x 24” Gallery Wrap Canvas.


I love Bird of Paradise. In Mendocino I didn’t see them blooming. Now in San Diego they are blooming everywhere. I feel passion from these flowers. Just like a Flamenco dancer.


Daisies are ordinary flowers and everybody loves them.

Once upon a time, in Japan “Flower” means Cherry blossoms. They bloom for only one week very beautifully and gone. When they are going away, becomes to be single peddles and falling, just like snow. Some windy day, it’s flower storm. Then ground and ponds are covered with white peddles in Japan.


Let’s celebrate this happy season, as dancing and jumping.


I’m going to show these paintings at the Mission Federal Art Walk at Little Italy. My show place will be with aaaSD, between Tent #302 and #303.  Our location is at Cedar St. between India St. and Kettner Blvd. near Indigo Grill. Please come by.
