The more I paint, the tougher I felt. Maybe that has kept me facing to my painting.All the difficulties have been melted gradually, so now I rather have to add up something.
It is inevitable for anyone not to be shifted into the spectacular world of Sugawara's paintings when one sees it. They hold the spirit of nature that a viewer can fit in to make painting itself complete.
