A Mini-Tribute to my father... PART 4

(continued from Part 3; sketches are my father's work.)

Painting...(my mother is seen in the extreme top left)
My father further pursued this pastime of sketching and painting (en plein air) when he began working at a large corporation, first in Osaka, then in Nagoya where he joined the company’s “painting club”. It was in this social circle that he also pursued a young woman, who a few years later would become his young bride and favourite model. The sketches that are left today from this time, especially during my parents’ days as newlyweds in New York, are intimate sketch portraits of my mother. (to be continued…)
