Artist Comment

This is a wall done with the woman from Uemura Shoen's "Rokujo" (which is supposed to be the flames of desire). This piece is at the National Art Museum in Tokyo, and I found it to be one of the most beautiful paintings I have seen from that part of the world.

I do not know whether I did justice to this art in my wall, but all elements are taken from other asian art, with minimal effects and a fair amount of touchup. Hope you all like it as much as I like this painting.

    wow...fascinating. i like how you captured the 'asianess' of the art. btw, how did you add the japanese writing? is it a font style or an image layer? deserves my fav.

    Holy shamolies you guys. I just posted this one and I'm getting a whole bunch of response to it within about TWO minutes! He he...that's awesome!

    Thanks to all of you. The kanji is an image layer, which was a scan of a scroll out of another art book I have :P.
