I am sad yet not alone
There are sporadic moments of happy dreams
The painting depicts two people; the person at the back is staying closely to the person in front as if to bring comfort. Having suffered leprosy, it was an unhappy life but there were happy moments, at times, when encouraged by people whom the painter met. In this unhappy life there were moments of joy. The title of the painting is not “sadness” but “little sad “because all in all, sadness is alleviated by people. The painting is an expression of the dream of having been comforted through sad times and joyous times.
