Inspired by Haiku
Yosa Buson (1716-1784)
菜の花や 月は東に 日は西に
Na-no-hana ya/ Tsuki ha higashi ni/ Hi wa nishi ni
The canola flowers.
The moon in the east.
The sun in the west.
This work explores the emotion of surrendering to a higher purpose, be it a career or a belief or a mission, there is something so undefined in the surrendering. An emotion of being part of something bigger than oneself. It is an exploration of abstractionism and painted in blending softly brighter colours and turning into vibrant shades.
I like using acrylics as the colours blend so well together. This work has different pigments including Metallics and gold paint which is dried acrylic as well, different angle of image shows, side-on, the effect. It is designed to catch the light.
