While exhibiting at Salon International show in Japan I was fortunate to watch presentation of Japanese traditional tea ceremony. There were several young girls with an older lady. And it was very beautiful and musical in a way. I took several photos of course for my memories. Later on, after a few years looking through the photos one of them inspired me to do that painting. I stylized the portrait to incorporate a little graphic technique to that . I do not paint in traditional Japanese graphic style but admire it a lot and was inspired by it in several of my paintings.
