Cathedral Interior

30" x 40" oil on canvas (1972)
“When I was a young schoolboy, every Sunday I used to go to a Christian church, a big, Caucasian church with high ceilings and stained glass windows. When they (the Caucasians) moved out, a Japanese minister took over. All the young Japanese went to this church. The church service was in English and Japanese. I used to go there on weekdays. I got permission and the key, since it was locked, and went in to practice my voice lessons. I made this image up.”
