This is something, I never was able to see in Hokkaido... Higanbana or Spider lillies.
They grow everywhere here now and in contrast to the yellow hues of rice-fields, Autumn-sun and green grass, it's an amazing sight. Farmers plant them arround the fields as a natural protection agains moles and mice, because their roots are poisenous.
Would love to paint this someday !!! ^_^
...and I'm having some great news about the group-exhibition in Tokyo. I will announce more after I checked my schedule and talked with my Dad.
