Description This describes my emotions while walking through the streets at night in Tokyo in my neighborhood. As a foreigner in Japan, it can be very lonely at times, and I often think about the people inside their houses. It creates a barrier of inside/outside and I felt I had to put it down on paper. The yellow which appears in many of my paintings represents a sign of hope or longing, or belief in hope for humanity. This painting also appeared in a refereed exhibit in Tokyo.
