Here is my greeting card design of this year's winter season (2008 Christmas--'09 New Year). I painted this when I was traveling in Nagasaki in late November. It took about 30 min. to finish the outline and colors.
I came back to Tokyo with this piece and soon started printing greeting cards.
As the church, Oura Tenshudo, is known as the symbol of the wish for peace of the people of Nagasaki, I thought it should be suitable to show the piece to my friends, to share the wish for peace at the time of Christmas/New Year.
I sent out about 300 copies of Christmas Cards/New Years greetings with this design along with my wish for the world peace.
May the year 2009 be filled with peace and happiness for you and your dearest ones!
