Striving for bliss and happiness - a young woman in a fine floral Japanese style kimono reaches towards a white glow. Little glowing spheres are captured in her hair which is raised in the style of Japanese prints, showing off the nape of her neck.
Japanese prints were a major influence in my early days as a painter and my interest was re-kindled when I saw a wonderful exhibition of Japanese Erotica at the British Musem in January 2014.
