SUMMER: Life, Love & Nature
Hand-Brushed Sumi Ink Art
Sumi is the name of a type of ink used in Japan for calligraphy brushing and art. The four paintings in this series are all hand brushed using traditional sumi ink with just a touch of color added for effect. All pieces are original art and have my name and stamp at the bottom. No two are exactly the same. They look great in a frame and can be hung individually, or as a set (special discount if you buy all four pieces). They make a wonderful gift for anyone who enjoys Japanese art, or who appreciates the beauty of the four seasons.
Summer celebrates life and love.
In the second piece of the of the 4-part series, the Japanese kanji for Summer "Natsu" is brushed at the top right. Below it, the smaller kanjis (read vertically right-to-left) are: "Seimei (Life), "Aijyo" (Love), and "Shizen" (Nature)
It is summer, so Ayano has returned to the ryokan (traditional Japanese-style hotel) to enjoy the warmth of the day, and one of Japan's many hanabi (fireworks) festivals at night. She has finished her bath, and as many young girls still do in Japan, has dressed in the traditional summer yukata (light, cotton kimono) to take in the overhead display. Cooling herself with the Uchiwa (flat paper fan), Ayano takes in the warm summer night and the beautiful fireworks while thinking of Nature, of Life... and of Love.
This piece makes an excellent gift for any season. (All 4 pieces can be purchased individually, or as a set.)
