The Japanese have a word, “Matsuyoi,” that means both the night of the 14th day of the eight month of the lunar calendar, and a night where one waits for someone who is supposed to come. A “Matsuyoi moon” is imbued with a sense of anticipation and wistful feelings, so I didn’t paint the moon itself, but only the brightened sky suggestive of its longed-for arrival.
