A girl with beautiful eyes that stands out on a light blue background. She is wearing a white tank top, and its pure whiteness blends perfectly with her dignified aura. The girl's black hair moves in a distinctive way, capturing the moment as if it were dancing, giving the work a sense of vitality and dynamism.

The girl seems to be looking at something, but since the destination of her gaze is not depicted, the viewer is free to interpret the focus of her gaze.

Beautiful Japanese paintings called ``See'' awaken the viewer's sensibilities and provide an opportunity to touch the girl's inner self. And that will lead to finding your own inner joy.
