I took the time to take pictures of my latest art work with my two inspirations. It was a joy putting this project together as I made the idea and vision a reality!
Satoko was very welcoming in accepting the donation for the project and took the time for some photographs to be taken. It was an honor to meet her.
“Sakura / All for Japan” was a special gift from the heart, a donation for the beautiful people of Japan. It was an emotional experience at the Japan Consulate in downtown Chicago.
I would like to thank all the Art fans and friends out there for making the “SAKURA / ALL FOR JAPAN” possible; mission accomplished, delivery complete! But specially Hailed, Mike, Becky (For the adventure / specially at the gas station) and most of all my friend Suzann (Thank you for your guidance, advice and direction). It made a difference to work on such a special art project that came from the heart; a piece of art work that means so much for all of us and to the people of Japan.

Erica Kono wrote this beautiful email on May 11th, Exactly when the events occurred . After speaking with her on the phone she accepted the donation a couple of days later. I am very happy to see that the masterpiece is going to a good cause. It was my pleasure and honor to be part of this special moment as it unfolds emotions of joy and happiness.
Erica was kind and very welcoming, but was unable to attend when I arrived, but I had the opportunity to meet Satoko Ogi who was very welcoming as well. After taking several pictures and a few tears and smiles we parted ways.
An Emotional trip
