I painted it for my American friend, Paula. I met her last year at Tybee. She is friends with Suzanne, the owner of the GA school by the sea porcelain arts school in America, and Suzanne introduced me to her. She invited me to her really lovely house, and we had a great time!

She lived in Japan for several years because of her husband’s job and while living in Japan, She had been teaching English to Japanese students. She has been collecting a lot of Japanese antiques and her house is full of Japanese antique furniture, dolls, vases, plates and stuff. Her house is so organized and like a house from a magazine!

It was very interesting to look around Paula’s house because she was really good at arranging the Japanese antiques into the Western style.

I took some pictures of her house and want to show them. It seems to be very Western from a Japanese point of view but very unique.

I think I’m extremely lucky because every time I go to America, I can make a lot of friends. I’ve been experiencing wonderful things that usually many tourist can’t experience. I appreciate all my friends that I’ve met!

I’m looking forward to visiting her house again and see how she has been decorating my hand painted kutani bowl in her house! When I visit her, I will take the picture and show you!!!

Thank you so much for sharing a wonderful time with me, Paula! See you soon again!!!
