Japanese-Style Fan and Flower Painting

This is an up-close of the piece I submitted to Utrecht Ft. Lauderdale’s 3rd Anniversary 6×6 Show. My second oil painting ever, in life. When I went to pick up the work, one of the employees commented that it looked kind of like tattoo art. Good eye! This one – as a tattoo or the painting itself – is still up for grabs.

Oil and enamel on board, 2011.

  1. it is excellently painted and looks great. i would keep it a painting because it is a “little” feminine witch is not a bad thing. 🙂 i may show my fiance but she would like to get it tatted. congratulations on this being only your second oil painting.

    • Yes, it would definitely make a feminine tattoo. As you point out, not a bad thing, I think for a guy to pull it off as a tattoo would just be a matter of making it big, and probably darker in color. I have a whole page of similar designs on an earlier post here. If she decides to get it as a tattoo, make sure you send me a picture! 🙂 Unless of course you guys are local, then you can just come get it tattooed by me!
