A few years ago we were snowed in at Caiporri, much like we are now, and I started a series of snow views, taking inspiration from Hokusai’s ‘Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji’. I have painted 10 so far, which isn’t a lot considering they are tiny miniatures (roughly 8cm/12cm – 3in/5in) and along minimalist lines. (See the header of the blog for one I painted in 2008). I made a thick board with the mulberry paper and water and flour glue and then cut them up into small pieces and each year I see the views from my studio and the paintings come to me.
Here is the first in a series of four snow view miniatures from 2010.
The following two paintings were from 2009 and also from a set of 4.
2012. Just the one… Finally blue skies!
Here is the website of Caiporri, but only summer images so far.
