‘Imprinted By A Great Wave’ – Day 345/365

‘Imprinted By A Great Wave’ – Day 345/365

Continuing my miniNature versions of great paintings that made lasting impressions on me is this one.⁠
.⁠
I saw it first in a book on Japanese art in a dusty library. Many years later I saw it appearing almost as a pop culture icon in home decor – not sure how I felt about the idea of my art one day being printed on doormats and shower curtains but simultaneously enamoured by the thought of showering alongside this great wave. ⁠
.⁠
I found out today while researching more about the artist, that we share the same birthday 226 years apart. How groovy?⁠
.⁠
Do you recognise this painting? I had so much fun finding my interpretation, albeit rushed (thanks Eskom and load-shedding!)⁠
.⁠
