Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

One of my favorite themes in painting is water, and in particular reflections. I love the water lilies and the Japanese gardens, which I find to be a synthesis of elegance . I find very interesting the Japanese culture, in particular the beauty and traditions of the geisha world.
Geisha are a type of Japanese entertainer and performer. They are a culturally elite group who are highly focused on beauty and aesthetics in general.
Maiko ("dance child") are trainee Geisha who typically undergo training from their mid teens to early twenties. As a Maiko's training proceeds she will earn a higher status amongst the Maiko until finally graduating to be a Geisha in a ceremony known as Erikae ("turning of the collar").
