Orange and green "kotowaza" paintings

I made “kotowaza” or “sayings” in pairs and had ‘Every move you make’ (see below) as a standalone and looking for a partner. I needed another orange and green painting so I asked my family in Japan again for their input and they came up with some options.

I was astonished at the rapidity with which my daughter rattled off sayings, she seems to have an unlimited supply within reach. ‘Don’t push your luck’ is below.

Now I have a pair in the same colour scheme I can go on to the next project, which might be the old ‘CAPitalism’ series or else something new I have planned. I will settle down to work soon.
