Another Scroll for ABS

This scroll is sold and is no longer available.

This is another scroll painted and framed specifically for the American Bonsai Society Convention in September at New York. I really like the way this one turned out. It has some beautiful features and is very easy on the eyes. This is a picture of a Mountain or Cold sparrow perched on a barren, thin tree branch.

The painting is done by Natsuko Horinouchi.

The scroll is done in a three step style called Sandan Hyougu. It has a Gold on white Ichimonji with a mauve color Chuumawashi and a khaki colored Ten/Chi. The colors are very harmonious and do not detract from the painting. The jikusaki is a ceramic piece with a color that is only slightly darker than the purple chuumawashi. The hanging string is a light gold color.
