Notes from Atelier

The world of “Flower” is “Spring” already.


Time flies and it is already February. February 3rd is the day of Setsubun. The word, Setsubun litetally means “division of the seasons.” February 4th is Risshun, the first day of spring. It is thought to be the ending of winter and the beginning of spring.

I often visit some flower shops near my house. The world of “flower” is ”Spring” already. Multicolored Tulips, Sweet peas and Ranunculus are fabulous. Ranunculus flowers look like roses and their colors are bright and vivid. Such vitamin colors give me “Energy”. I am working on my paintings with spring flowers.
