This scroll is a very detailed monochrome sumi painting of a pine branch. It was the 17th in a series of scrolls done for Dee Teller and her solo exhibition titled Asia Speaks. I really tried to keep this simple, but used the light green cloth (kireji) to help provide imagery of pine needles. I translated the Zenith in the title to be the Sunset, and so I used the orange/red and red lacquer jikusaki (wood ends on the bottom dowel) to try and reinforce that message. The scroll is quite small, but sometimes I think small turns out better in the end.
