This scroll is my only bonsai order for the year so far....
I worked hard on a larger piece of artwork, but the scroll did not work out. It was ruined in the final process. But the lemons are lemonade, because I think this is a more appropriate scroll to use for a bonsai display. It is still a little on the big side, but with a larger tree should work in a display environment well.
a. To provide a good contrast between the very dark painting and
b. To encourage the viewer to feel the moonlight is completely enveloping them as well.
The style of the scroll is a Nidan Hyougu which is a Semi-formal scroll, and it should go well with any type of plant with which it is displayed.
The Ten and Chi portion is a Golden to be neutral and allow for either a summer or fall themed display.
