Winter in Nippori

2017

acrylic   30″ x 24″

Nippori is a suburb on the fringe of Tokyo city, just 15 minutes away from the Shinagawa train station.  It is a shogentai ( shopping street ) that is lined with artisanal shops making pottery, textiles, teas; mum and pop cafes, temples and shrines and a famous rice cracker shop that dates back to the ancient Edo period.

It was a cold winter morning when I noticed this tree limb as I looked up into the sky.  It gave me an inspiration to paint it when I got home from my trip.  The bare branches of the tree broke up the blue sky and clouds.  The sky is never one solid color but a subtle shade of blues and whites giving it a mosaic kind of sky.-
