Jizo reminiscence

1000: Jizo reminiscence (Kuroiwa)

The countryside in spring — brilliant yellow rapeseed flowers contrasting with the palest cherry blossom, and the six Jizo figures in the foreground. The haiku reads...

Kaeri-michi / na-no-hana-batake to / tooi sora
The homeward way, yellow rapeseed flowers, and distant sky

The artist was born in Nagano in 1947, and specialises in Buddhist themes, with a distinctive whimsically warm style. (Kuroiwa is his family name - he signs his pictures with a stylised seal of his given name, Toyotaka.)
