“Thank you for considering my work. Someone not trained in the painting arts might overlook my chosen colors of green and red; they are opposites to go along with the yin/yang theme. I have recently completed a painting with oil on canvas. The 20×24″ realism piece depicts an eager, perhaps twelve-year-old Japanese girl beginning to throw a twenty-year-old male uke. She is employing the technique of shihonage. She wears a white dogi jacket and pants, while he wears a white jacket and a hakama. Portrayed in a number of ways, the blending of yin and yang is my primary theme.”
