Les Mimosas de Mesubenomori. 2013. 80×120 cm. Acrylic and oil pastel on paper.

In Nagasaki, I often went to Mesubenomori park. Around it bloom beautiful mimosa trees. I first began painting this picture in 2009 at the XXX Indies Art Club in Nagasaki. A small place where artists can rent a space to paint, meet other local artists and exhibit. I never could render the small coton like flowers of the mimosas, though. So I rolled up my picture and brought it back to France where it stayed in a corner for 4 years. A couple months ago I began using oil pastels. I like the rich texture of them. They’re wonderful to use. It didn’t take long before I made the connection between the softness, the rich yellow tone and the powdered flower. And Voilà !
