In medieval Japan, the founder of the Kano school, Motonobu Kano, said, "A well-painted picture emits a cool sound. It is the sound of silence. Listen to that sound." Imagine the impact such a work could have on people's hearts.

Hokusai, who painted until his death at 90, reportedly said, "If only I could live another ten or even five years, I would become a real painter." What is the state of being a true artist, whose paintings emit a cool sound?

With the aspiration of reaching such an artistic pinnacle, I strive to continue my dedication and improvement.
