Yatsugatake 6F (40.9 x 31.8cm) Written by Motoo Koizumi


This work is an oil painting depicting the arrival of spring, with one of Japan's famous mountains in the background.

The majestic figure of Mt. Yatsugatake rises in the distance, with snow still remaining on its peak.

In the foreground are cherry blossoms in full bloom, and their petals seem to be dancing lightly in the wind. The meadow is depicted in bright green and is dotted with spring buds and flowers, giving a sense of changing seasons and new beginnings. The colors depict the cherry blossoms in warm pink and white, and the grass in bright green, expressing the richness of Japan's spring landscape.

It can be said that this photo beautifully captures the life and prosperity that exists in Japan's nature .
