This is quite fun, fun and fun to paint same as "Wine Bottle People series".
I have no words about this series. Please just enjoy my art works. You may like this series, too.
This series, I wanted to paint many kinds of human life as funny creatures or toys or so.
I like to listen to the music. Especially jazz and classical music. But I'd like latin music like salsa or bossanova, country music and Beatles and so on, too.
Also I am very enjoying to see ballet and dance. Classical ballet of course, modern dance, jazz dance and salsa, tango et cetra. And musical, too.
I'd like to express human's life replacing with something new style of creatures, robots or so.
Especially I'm taking care of movements and streams of music, dance and so on.
If you feel happy after you saw these paintings, just I am happy. Yes. I want to express about human's happiness in this series.
I want to paint "invisible things" in this series. Which is the "Stream of Music", "Stream of Mind" or "Connection of People or Bugs" and so on. You could enjoy the background of my paintings.
See?? Now you can see how to connect people to people by music. Isn't it wonderful???

"Jazz Festival in Dallas" ;
As I told you, I like music. Especially Jazz and Classical. When I listen to good live jazz in Dallas, I can have something very comfortable feeling and kindly breezing stream from music.
Here in Dallas, the streams of jazz connect musicians and musicians, and became the music circle more bigger and bigger.
Almost of every musicians have very open mind and are very kind. Quite big music circle, which I wanted to paint as a first painting of this series.
"Circus, circus" ;
When we were children, we always dreamed of circus. Acrobatics, daring stunt, juggling with manythings. My heart bounded with joy.
Now? Of course still I like it. Circus make us happy.
"Love Song-II", "Love Song-VI" and "Love Song-VII" ;
Many kinds of music came up, and flooded every where around us, and connect people to people.
Pops, jazz, dance music and so on. Music became a part of our life. Most of time, music made us happy and comfortable. And join to people in "LOVE".
"Bugs' Groove in Blue Moon"-Series ;
When moon become at the full and blue, everybody feels happy and be satisfied. Dancing, singing, playing jazz, love each other. Not only human, but also animals or even small bugs. And enjoying their life.
If we have blue moon everyday, -----. Are you happy???
***"Bags' Groove" (not "Bug's Groove") is a jazz composition by Milt Jackson.
++++And first recorded by Miles Davis's quintet in 1954.
++++The recording was released on the 1957 album "Bags' Groove".
"Love Song-III" ;
Not only music, but also people's love support "Love". In the restaurant, on the plat form of train station, on the bus, everywhere we can see people's "Love".
In the restaurant, cook of course but waiter or waitress support us with their "Love". Making good foods, bringing these foods or drinks with "Love". People's "LOVE" flood all of the place. This is our "Earth".
"Love Song-IV" ;
We have many confortable place to listen to music around us. Wineries, restaurants, hotel's, Chocolate sellers and so on.
And of course, almost of the time we can spend very luxury and pleasant time with our friends. If we don't call it as "Love", what do we need to say these kind of things???
"Freedom Jazz Dance" ;
Jazz is one of the greatest music in the world. Jazz is freedom. Jazz is a passion. Jazz is life.
I can say many words for "Jazz". But this is my true mind. We should not cease such great music "Jazz" forever. Jazz is one of the greatest music in the world.
"Love Song-V" ;
As I told you, I like to see ballet of course, modern dance, jazz dance. Even break dance is fun to see.
But if I'm in Latin Country and on the beach, of course it's Latin dance like Salsa, Bossa Nove or Samba.
People loves music. People loves people. So maybe only "Love" can save world??? Maybe the answer would be "yes".
"Love Song-VIII" ;
Classical music. It's another my favorite music. Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Smetana, Brahms, Mozart, Dvorak and of course Tchaikovsky.
But not only full orchestra, but also I like very much small group classical music for example strings quartet or sonata for cello and piano. And I like also nocturne by piano or violin composed by Chopin and others.
Enjoy your life.
"Pleasant Meeting" ;
Junko painted as a CD cover for Dallas famous musician Buddy Mohmed. Actual title of his CD is "Peasant Company".
But Junko stretched her imagination and assumed first meeting of people. Buddy's group plays mainly his original music in this CD. All music are great, unique and fun to listen to. Great CD.
"Bug's Groove in Blue Moon-IV" ;
Fisrt time, Junko painted crescent in her Blue Moon series. But it was high in favor among people. At the first exhibition, this painting was sold out immediately. Even though many people want to have similar one, but Junko told me she doesn't wan to paint similar one soon. Maybe l;ater she said. I like Blue Moon, but crescent, too. ^0^
"Love Song-IX" ;
First time Junko painted Mexican music "Mariachi" band. Her's Texas. We have many opportunity to listen to them around here. So why not "Mariachi". ^0^ ^0^
"Bug's Groove in Blue Moon-V" ;
Junko combined two imaginations. One from her long-time-ago-series "New Romance" style which she imagened of Japan. And another is this series "Wonderland-Blue Moon". Mountains-Bamboos(Japan)-Gugs. Are they playing Japanes song or jazz?? ^0^ ^0^ Nobody knows, but Junko. ^0^
"Smooth Fuse-I" ;
This is also first time, Junko painted similar painting as "Love Song Series" but without young couple in it. "Love Son Series" have always one of young couple in it. Because Junko wants to expres about happiness. Music make people happy, friendship makes people happy, great atmosphere restaurant makes people happy et cetra, et cetra. But this small painting still expresses happiness without young couple.
She painted original one for the contribution to Northlake College in Irving, TX for wall mural. But Junko likes it very much. So she painted same design one as a second one and named Smooth Fuse-I instead of Smooth Fuse-original. This is nice new style of her. ^0^ ^0^
"Bug's Groove in Blue Moon-VI" ;
Recently Junko is trying to paint different siuation, many combination. This time, Blue Moon came to tropical island in the middle of nowhere-ocean. Bugs are playing music, and fishes are dancing. First time when I heard her idea, I said that fish couldn't play instruments because no-hands. Junko said that don't worry, they are just dancing. ^0^ Here it is. ^0^ ^0^
