夏の夜
Natsu no yoru (Summer Niaht)


「日本の四季」をテーマにという事なので、私の大好きな季節「夏」を選びました。もっとも好き嫌い以前に「桜満開お花見」とか「紅葉」とか「ホワイトクリスマス」といった、日本人なら誰しもあリそうなシチュエーションに一切縁がない沖縄育ちには、夏以外の季節を好きになる機会が……。
そんなこんなで夏の夜、水面に映る花火を描こうと思い、海や浴衣に花火に神社に…と、描きたいもの、子供の頃に近所で見た景色や賑やかな中を飛んでいる蛍など、昔の思い出も含めてこの絵の中に詰め込んでみました。


As the theme was Japan's four seasons, I chose my favorite season, summer. Although I say it is my favorite, I come from Okinawa where we do not experience the ‘cherry blossom viewing’, ‘autumn leaves’, ‘white Christmas’ or other events that the rest of the Japanese enjoy, so I never had a chance to like anything but summer...
I decided to draw a summer’s night with fireworks reflected in the surface of water. The sea, a yukata kimono, fireworks, a shrine, all these things that I wanted to draw derive from the scenery of my childhood when the sky was full of fireflies, so I have included all my memories in this picture.
