Naoko says this painting is meant to evoke the feeling of going through a narrow path, and a little pond surrounded by trees appears. The closest two trees cross like the gate to the pond. Another tree spread its limb like a sunbrella. The water is half covered with algae, and its blue-green color is beautiful under the sun. The surface of the water shines in warm whitish pink.

Getting to Know Naoko

Naoko Tadotsu’s art is about three things: nature, color, and light. Naoko captures all these elements in perfect unison, a feat that takes years to master. In blurs of primary colors, Naoko is able to find the essence of life on the canvas.
