Amazing if we take the time to look we can find inspiration everywhere from every corner of this earth. I loved how politely you are welcomed to his site. Welcome to www.hiroshimatsumoto.com
I agree with Hiroshi that you can get lost in exploring the paths of colour. I particularily was drawn to this piece as I liked the soft colour combination. Lovely!
“I love oil paint, it’s texture, viscosity, slow-drying time and smell. I paint abstract. I never know what it is going to be until it’s complete. When I start to paint, I always put some colours on the canvas without thinking. My choice of colours is often accidental or intuitive. I try to catch the chance meeting of colour with composition. Sometimes I get lost, and then other times I find myself walking along a path that brings me back to where I belong. Abstract is for me a concrete way to share an inner sense, place and time with you directly and deeply.” Artists Statement Hiroshi Matsumoto .
