Japanese paintings are made using traditional materials and techniques that have been employed for well over 1000 years. These works have depicted the seasonal flowers in Japan drawn onto vertical screens reminiscent of hanging scrolls. The seasons change from the start of spring, to the full bloom of the flowers, to the beginning of summer viewed from the top to the bottom of the screen. The 11 varieties of flowers depicted are plum, cherry tree, tulip, Chinese peony, rose, wisteria, lily, lily of the valley, peony, iris and hydrangea.

A matière is made by applying silver on top of the base layer then making it into crepe paper. The flowers are drawn on top. Painting over many layers results in a beauty incorporating air and light.

Nobuyo always says her paintings have a sparkling beauty like the stars confined to a small screen. She speaks of Japanese art depicted through rock paintings made from crushed natural stones of vibrant colors being like a star-filled sky. What brings her happiness is if her works will inspire a sense of brilliance and warm glow.
