• 3.シルバー色の背景の紫陽花のリース
    – Hydrangea Wreaths on Silver –

     

    しとしと降る雨に濡れて咲く花は青、紫、桃色がふんわりと混ざり合い、初夏の雨の日特有の霞がかかったような空気の中でとても幻想的。花の色が徐々に変わっていく為、花言葉は、「移り気」。白いのだけは、広くて優しい心をもっているとされ、「寛容」。そういう沢山の紫陽花をギューと詰め込んだリースを描きたかった。

     

    A gentle rain falls all day long in the rainy season in early summer in Tokyo and it lasts for about 2 months. One of the joys during the period is to see them showing their beauty by hitting the flower petal. And it makes the air in the city hazy and has dreamlike atmosphere and fantastic beauty.

    Hydrangea flowers with blue, purple and peach pink colors are blended softly.

    Since hydrangea changes its color based on the pH level of their soil, the language of hydrangea is thought to be “Heartlessness” or “Boastfulness”. In contrast, white one stands for “Generosity’. I have had such an image of countless number of hydrangeas as being stuffed into the wreaths.
