1000: Flower thoughts (Haruyo)

"Flower thoughts" indeed! Haruyo has gone almost over the top here: the subject has an almost quizzical expression, as if to say "Me? Overdressed?" In addition to her elaborate obi and headwear, petals from the cherry tree flutter down all over her, leaving absolutely no blank areas in this puzzle!

Original title: Kasou

Detail

The artist Morita Haruyo studied both Japanese art and kimono design, and she combines these with elements of her own Western-influenced technique. (She travelled to London in 1977, exactly the year I [Brian Chandler] first came to Tokyo.)

Morita is her family name: she follows the tradition of signing - and sealing - paintings with her given name only.
