An imaginary village in Hokkaido during winter. I have not been to Japan so far but have been dreaming of going there for a while. This piece was created in a rapid way in one evening with slight finishing touches on another night. Inspired by memories of some Japanese movie with the vision of big snowflakes falling down in front of a forest background and then various lantern images. Also perhaps by Spirited Away. I’m not sure. It was great fun painting this. Acrylic, 2014.
