The choice of palette has to do with the importance of colors in Japan. Red and white are prominent traditional colors in Japan. Both colors are used in decorations at events which represent happiness and joy. Yellow denotes sunshine and nature in Japan. Black is a popular color in Japan for electronics and clothing. It mainly denotes non-being, mystery, night and anger. This painting was juried and exhibited at the Las Lagunas Art Gallery, Laguna Beach, CA
