White Lovers II, Japanese Landscape Painting

White Lovers, Hokkaido II
White Lovers, Hokkaido II

For many people, last month's Valentine's Day may be a thing of the past.  However, in some Asian countries, the whole thing doesn't really end until March 14, which is called White Day.  In Japan, for example, it is expected that you know the unwritten rules: if you're a man and received chocolate from a woman on February 14, you are supposed to reciprocate one month later by giving her something equally nice or better.  I think it's safe to say the overall tone of this practice is fairly light-hearted, which is enjoyed more like a game by most people.

Depicted in today's painting are some of many small islands on Lake Oonuma in Hokkaido, Japan.  These islands are all connected by bridges and they look beautiful especially when they are covered by pure-white snow.  Click here to see another painting "White Lovers I" and read related post.
