I thought this was a puzzle that would be fun to solve Isaly. I'm glad that you liked it :-)


What a brilliant painting by Yuko Shimizu. Interesting bio above about her and how Playboy wanted to commission her work. She has an interesting way of doing her art by starting off with Japanese calligraphy brushes and later digitally supplements with additional colors and backgrounds. Lots of time spent on a painting. I really like this.
