“ Rose Of Sharon ”

40 cm x 31 cm
8" X 12"

Oil pastel & Watercolor

On Watercolor Paper, ( Aug, 1995 )

( My Private Collection )




I painted this in August, 1995, while visiting with my son Michio, at my mother’s house,
in Middletown, NY…

My youngest sister Bonnie,
watched me while I worked…

My mother had extensive gardens, and I so enjoyed painting from them…

This piece sits high on my wall, above my desk,
I see it everyday, but it has never been documented before…

I thought it was time for that to change…







Such nostalgia
when looking at my old works;
a much simpler time…

“ Gardenia ”

This is the 3rd postcard in a series of 3, I did today at my monthly Etegami session…

On the way to class, I bicycled past a blooming shrub of gardenia;
the scent caught my attention, and also as a subject for today,
I like to paint its shapes, and silhouettes…

Today was our last session, before Summer-break.

We resume in September…

“ (Early) Cherry Blossoms at Inokashira Park ”
(1995)

Oil Pastel, Watercolor

40 cm x 31 cm
(15.7 “ X 12”)
on Washi Paper




I remember creating this piece, ”en plein air”,
22 years ago, at Inokashira Park…

I was camped out with all my painting gear,
along the bank of the boat pond.

I remember the passerby stopping to look at what I was doing,
and it made me uneasy…

It was this time of the year- still early for cherry blossoms, just a few were open.

What was more interesting to me,
was the color in everything else other than the blossoms-
It was a challenge to me, to capture that!

I remember the passerby looking at my “work-in-progress”,
with perplexed expressions…
I now prefer to paint either indoors, or in a quiet place free of passerby-

My work reveals all, when it is finished!

This piece is in my private collection,
it caught my eye today, and I wanted to showcase it…
