2001 Snow Scape.jpg

As the project for Fusuma-e paintings for the Eihei-ji temple started to kick in, I visited the Eihei-ji temple in winter to attend the ascetic training and make sketches. When I say ‘ascetic training’, it was actually for a day and I only attended the morning session, but I still felt that my heart was purified by it. This is the painting that I made from the sketches of that day. I competed this painting in black and white with the Sumi-e (sumi ink paintings) in mind, however with this painting I used Japanese style paints such as chalk.
