My Fenghuang Painting
Hi, friends. How are you doing? We have been having hot days in Japan. I almost start to melt because of this hot weather!
I hope everybody is fine and enjoy the summer season.
I would like to show my fenghuang bird today. It was came from China, and it is not a real bird.
However, Japanese artists love painting and creating the statue of the birds. You can look at the most famous statue at the top of the Kinkau temple roof in Kyoto. It is one of the most beautiful temples in Japan.
I painted it with a Imari painting style. Red colors and blue colors combinations are quite common in Imari painting. I added some gold on my plate. You can look at the mark, 卍 on my plate. It is the mark as auspicious omens motif in Buddhism.
