Being an animal lover, animals are often the subject of my paintings. Here, frog, is one of the symbols of prosperity in Japan.

Pronaunced 'kaeru' in Japanese, it has also a second meaning which could be translated as 'come back' and mean that the good things done or things given away in goodwill will come back.
