My article in the newspaper, 新聞に私の記事が

There is an article about my solo exhibition in Japanese newspaper, The Shukan New York SeiKatsu No.275 (10/17/09 Issue). I tried to translate it from Japanese to English was a lot of job for me indeed. And a friend of mine corrected it. I'm happy to have it because it's a good one and is not only a detail of the exhibition but also included my statement in it as well. I would like everyone can read English Translation of the article (click).
この前のブログでもう読んだ方も多いと思いますが、週刊ニューヨーク生活に掲載された記事を英語に翻訳しました。私にとってこの忙しい時期に、なんで?こんな大変な事をしているのかと、自分に問いかけながら...。
良い記事なのと私の作品のステートメントを確実に書き込まれているので、日本人だけじゃなく、読んでもらいたんです。それで頑張ってやってみました。
私の英語力に情けなさを感じながら、ある程度私自身で訳して、友人に直してもらいました。本当に大変でしたが、でも良い勉強になりました。英語版はこちらを

Merry Christmas and hope you have a great new year!

Aww, your English is perfect and not strange at all !!! I wish I were that good in Japanese.
How are you? Hope all is going great with you and that you've had a wonderful new years celebration.
Here all is fine, but very turbulent at the moment... Guess what?!? We will move to Kyushu at the end of March. They suddenly offered my husband a professor position in Kyushu daigaku. We were so surprised and happy, because this is a great honor.
How is the art-scene in Fukuoka? Do you know?
Please, if you come to Kyushu someday again, visit us, o.k?!
Hope to see more art from you soon!

Love,
Julia
