I finished the series; “After an artist died, the ten blue poems left in the forest”!

Hello, everyone!
Today I finished the series; “After an artist died, the ten blue poems left in the forest”.
In this series I attempted an impossible combination of the image and inspiration that begins to rise from the original text of the poetry, such as T. S. Eliot and W. B. Yeats, and the oriental base that I repeat Buddhist sutra towards the Buddhist altar every morning.
And I also challenged one attempt to express it in English into a painting rather than in Japanese.
I probably felt that one new expression would be born at the end of this unlikely join.
The initial feeling became convincing when I saw several stray cats which rested to the ancient shrine when I visited Rome in June, 2017.
(Do you know that the ancient shrine; Largo Di Torre Argentina where Julius Caesar was assassinated is now a protection center for stray cats and abandoned cats?)
A new expression born from unlikely combination.
abcde+Buddhist sutra=a new fusion.
A most unexpected idea.
A challenge for that.
The sentence; “Stay hungry. Stay foolish” also appears again here.
An improbable combination of life itself that can be connected by dot and dot.
From a needlewoman to a weightlifting player.
From a weightlifter to a seamstress.

I think personally that through the series, I got the most well is No.2.
And I was convinced that a new expression was born at No.8.
By deepening this 8th expression, I strongly have a hope for my future development.
When you click on the “Watercolours” in the Categories, you can find all works through the series.

Thank you.
