Wayside Pond

Jin7 16 Mar 2020

This is a beautiful place called Aoi Ike( means blue pond) in Biei Hokkaido
The pond filled with fantastic fog.


This has a horror movie atmosphere.
When my husband and I dove in cenotes in Mexico there was H2S cloud under the water on the bottom of the cenote and trees that had fallen into the cenote. So those trees underwater were sticking with their limbs out of that foggy H2S and this painting really reminds me about this experience.

On the photos from internet this place is more alive than my imagination lets me to see from the painting.

Dear Sunnylady
I knew it, but chose it because this was easier to paint.

Looks great! Reminds me of Evangelion

Thank you for your nice comment.
There are places with similar atmosphere in Japan
Kamikochi, Nagano Prefecture, a popular tourist destination
If I show this to people without saying anything, will many say this is Kamikochi.

I really love this painting, its stunning.
