"I think the paintings tell us what we saw and what moved us at the destination we went on a trip. It goes without saying that each one is different. What I think was the best thing is that the scenery I drew is imprinted on my eyes and I will never forget it. Every time I see a picture, the atmosphere and excitement at that time revives vividly.
