Lonesome Seagull on Cloudy Day

I went to Mendocino Coast three times in August.

Every time I was there, days were very cloudy.


My friends who live on Mendocino Coast, they got sick of gray sky.

I understand that feeling.


But I like to paint any weather. All weather have character.

528. Lonesome Seagull on Cloudy Day Oil painting by Mariko Irie

I love these colors of this painting. I call these color combination “Wabi Sabi”. It’s Japanese.

Japanese tea ceremony is based on Zen Spirit. Sen Rikyu was Tea Ceremony Master. He profound these color combination.


How do you like?
