a painting

My English teacher teaches painting, too.
One day on the English lesson a few years ago, he brought some small pictures of his paintings, and we talked about them in English. And at the end of the lesson, he gave a picture to each of us. Actually, I liked two pictures. One was a picture of a painting of cherry blosoms, and the other was a picture of a painting of Komagatake (mountain). Then I chose the cherry blossoms' one eventually.

One day of last year, when I was looking for something at home, I found that picture of cherry blossoms by chance. And when I saw the picture, I regreted that I should've chosen the other one, Komagatake. I knew I will move out someday, and I thought I wanted to have something which reminds me of living in Hakodate.

I then asked my English teacher if he had the painting of Komagatake still then. He said he had a few paintings of Komagatake. And I said to him that I wanted to buy one if it was resonable. However, they were not so good for my apartment in size.
Then, my teacher offered me that he would paint a smaller one for me. I was a little surprised to hear that and I was afraid how much it would be. However, I had accepted it.

Finally, he gave me the painting last month. I had been really nervous before seeing it, but it was much better than that I had expected. I was so happy and like it very much.
He told me that he had painted it with remembering what he saw at around four o'clock in the early morning when he had stayed there.
No matter how many times I see it I don't get tired of it. And it doesn't need its flame and it is light in weight. After I brought it to my place, I tried to put the painting many places in my house except on walls, but there weren't any places that I was satisfied.
My apartment prohibits from pushing any pins on a wall, and my family has kept the promise since we moved here, for more than five years.
However, I broke it for the first time.
I ended up putting it on a wall in our living room.

I will cherish the painting for all in my life. It will remind me of Hakodate life in the future.
And, last but not least, I was really relieved to hear the resonable price of it.
I appreciated him very much.

I then asked my English teacher if he still had the painting of Komagatake. He said he had a few paintings of it. I told him that if it were reasonably priced, I would buy one. However, the available paintings were too large for our apartment.
My teacher then offered to paint a smaller one for me. I was a little surprised to hear this, and I was afraid of how expensive it may prove to be. However, I had accepted his offer.

I finally received the painting last month. I had been really nervous before seeing it, but it was much better than I had expected it to be. I was so happy when I had seen it. I like it very much.

He told me that he had painted it from memory of what he had seen on one particular morning at around four AM when he had stayed in Hokadate.

No matter how many times I see it, I never get tired of it. It doesn't even need a frame, and it is light in weight. After I brought it to my place, I tried to put the painting in many places in my house, except on the walls, but there weren't any places that I had found which were satisfactory.
My apartment prohibits the pushing of any pins in any of the walls. My family has kept our promise ever since we moved here more than five years ago.
However, I broke our promise for the first time.
I ended up hanging it on a wall in our living room.

I will cherish the painting for the rest of my life. It will forever remind me of Hakodate.
And, last but not least, I was really relieved to learn of the reasonable price for it.
I appreciate him very much.

Re: English Corrections

Hi, Shiroi Tora.

Thank you very much for the corrections.

I have a question.
What's the difference between 'My English teacher teaches painting, too.' and 'My English teacher also teaches painting.'?

Answer to Sakae's question

Sakae's Question:

What's the difference between 'My English teacher teaches painting, too.' and 'My English teacher also teaches painting.'?

My Reply:

Technically, nothing. However, when someone says 'too', it usually is in reference to a previously said statement. By saying 'too', a person may think that someone else previously referred to also paints.


Sakae pointed out a mistake of mine.

One day, during one my English lessons a few years ago...


My correction of my correction:

One day, during one of my English lessons a few years ago...

I had left out the word, 'of'.

Sorry, I should have caught that one.
