What does this mean?

Hello Jonathan,
Thank you for your appraisal inquiry with Mearto. The item presented appears to be an acrylic painting on canvas depicting a Japanese female in a garden scene. This scene is commonly known as a genre scene. The painting appears to be in a contemporary Japanese style, dating to the mid-20th century. Unfortunately, we were unable to translate the inscription seen on the painting. It appears to read "to be" but we cannot confirm; handwritten inscriptions can be quite difficult to decipher. Typically, inscriptions are poems or haikus relating to the image. The estimate provided is based on recent auction estimates and results of other comparable Japanese style paintings, dating to the mid-20th century. The estimate is contingent on a full condition report. Please note asking or dealer prices may vary. Thank you and please take care.
