As a child, Christmas existed only on TV and in churches. Adults' conversations were always dark prospects that the economy was not good, and my parents struggled every day with various bill pay. Setting up and decorating the Christmas tree and exchanging gifts in this environment felt like a fairy tale. But as an adult and able to stand on my own, I was able to set up a tree in my house, decorate it, listen to carols, and give and receive gifts. Of course, like my parents when I was young, I worry about bill pay, the economy is not good, and there are many difficulties.
Looking back, we were able to celebrate with even a small candle lit at that time. Because even during the war, they make trees and celebrate Christmas. Why didn't we have Christmas at that time?
In my memory I loved Christmas. I was able to make cards by drawing on white paper and distribute them to people around me.
When you think about it this way, art is like a Christmas tree to me. Painting has always helped me overcome difficult situations and dream.
And painting is my best friend anytime, anywhere.
I still make cards now. Now times have changed, so I made this card like this. I would like to dedicate this card to all who love painting.
Have a merry Christmas~
