"WINTER: Serenity, Peace & Reflection
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.
Winter is when we gather our thoughts and again find ourselves.
In this final piece of the series, the Japanese kanji for Winter "Fuyu" is brushed at the top right. Below it, the smaller kanjis (read vertically right-to-left) are: "Seion (Serenity), "Heiwa" (Peace), and "Meiso" (Reflection).
Ayano has returned to a ryokan (traditional Japanese-style hotel) for the final time to bathe in the steamy waters of the onsen which have flowed from Japan's volcanic underground hotsprings for thousands of years. She is comfortable and warm within the steamy waters of the rotenburo (outdoor hot spring), even as the gentle snow falls around her.
Sitting in the soft glow of the nearby lantern, Ayano enjoys just a bit of sake as she reflects on both the year that has passed, and the one that is soon to come: "Serenity," "Peace," "Reflection"... May they find their way to her again next year and also to those she knows and loves.
This piece makes an excellent gift for any season. (All 4 pieces can be purchased individually, or as a set.)
