Akamatsu Kana Exhibition – I’m painting here

Apr 20th Tue. – May 1st Sat. 2021 
Monday Closed

The birds are following and pecking at the ground, just behind the tractor tilling the soil.
A new year begins.
A crow flies by with a bunch of worms hanging from its beak.
Two moles, the same shape as a tube, came out of the trap we had set.
My husband said, "I'm going to bury them" and went to the back of the field.
