1989 Cedar Forst.jpg

I was making sketches of cedar trees for a certain purpose. Cedar trees are all over in Japan, so I painted cedar trees at various places. That particular purpose got cancelled, and so because of that I ended up with lots of material on cedar trees and I managed to turn them into a painting to submit for the Autum Inten exhibition. When I was painting this, there were two paintings that came across my mind. One is Shorin-zu Pine Trees screen of Hasegawa Tohaku and the other is Ochiba of Hishida Shunsou. But as I was painting I got too occupied with the painting and had no time to think of anything else.
