春風の贈り物
Haru kaze no okurimono (Present from the Spring Wind)


日本の四季ということで私自身一番大好きな春をテーマに描きました。
咲く花、風に散る花、地面に落ちた花とそれぞれに心や意味を感じられる、そんな日本が大好きです。
擬人化というのも日本が生んだ素晴らしいカルチャーだと思うので金魚人魚さんを描いてみました。金魚の少女が春の季節に再び愛する人に会えた、という出会いのシーンをイメージしています。
春に感じる暖かさや喜び、期待などがこの絵から伝えられたらいいなと思います。


The subject is Japan's four seasons so I have used my favorite theme...spring. Blooming blossom, petals scattering on the wind, and petals covering the ground, each of these has its own heart and meaning. This is what I love about Japan.
I think that anthropomorphism is a part of the wonderful culture that developed in Japan and so I have decided to draw a mermaid who is half goldfish. I imagined a rendezvous scene,in which the goldfish girl will be able to be reunited with her lover in the spring.
I hope that you will be able to find a feeling of the warmth, joy and anticipation of spring within this picture.
