The theme for this exhibition is the four seasons and there is a subject that I had wanted to draw for a long time. That is the feeling of youth, of fresh greenery budding in spring, an impression of weakness to external pressure but with the power of rapid growth to overcome it. This is how I feel every spring when I look at the view outside my room; for me, the spring season is summed up by an image of pale new leaves.
That is why I wanted to draw a picture of this moment of release from the restraint of winter but as a result, the picture looks rather too wholesome. It just turned out that way...

Isn't the power of youth great? I do not mean for the way in which it can be forced into any shape you like. It may be the fault of the sunlight shining through leaves, but it feels so bright that I am forced to close my eyes.
