Description I went to the Cherry Blossom Festival in S.F.'s Japantown, which is always a blast. The peace pagoda can be seen in the background, as well as a Giants booth. The two men on this float were throwing sake all over the crowd and making poses as the float was carried down the street. I haven't been back to Tokyo since 2009 so this satiated my appetite.
James Lane, Sacramento, Ca. Member Since September 2010 Artist Statement I am fascinated with the world, languages, and the intersection between place and time. I use classical techniques and symbolism, sometimes using dry humor, to express emotions and tell visual stories. The biggest influences on my painting are the places I’ve seen and the people I’ve met around the world. Artistic influences include Gauguin, Edward Hopper, and Hokusai; writers and poets like Paul Bowles, Basho and Pablo Neruda, and movie directors Fellini and Kurosawa. I paint in oils primarily. I often paint upside down to block out conscious interference and remain in a state of creative flow for as long as possible.
