Not for Bonsai Display but a Tree nonetheless

Post  Kakejiku on Sat May 26, 2012 9:54 pm

This scroll is so large I am not tall enough, nor have a longer Yahazu to hang it any higher. Unfortunately this gets the unsightly handrail in the way. I love this is very simple yet complex at the same time. The brush strokes are also light and not as heavy as expected, yet detailed at the same time. This is the seventh in the series by Dee Teller, and if you would like to purchase her art go to

I chose the green cloth for the scroll with a very light gold pattern to match the theme of the tree as if in spring or summer. The gold Karakusa (arabesque) on white background provides a good relief. The Jikusaki, are a Ceramic cream and green two tone which seems to go well with both the cloth and the Ichimonji.
