His original drawing for his etching is only one sheet exists. From his own collection. He drew on very beautiful white color Japanese Washi paper, the backing paper also beautiful cream Japanese handmade Washi paper. Drawing and his paper show very Japanese mood. He used a pen, Sumi ink, colored pencils, and watercolors. This drawing is very nostalgic and romantic. 

There is something special about the solitude of winter, the contrast of snow against the dull manmade world and the empty winter forest, the soft sounds of snow underfoot, the stillness with only the sounds of the blowing wind. A warm fire and hot food await in the safety of our home. Families are somehow closer in the winter. After winter the cherry blossoms will surely come and our patience will be rewarded. His original drawing is the extremely special collector item.
