Another Sumie Bird Wallscroll for ABS

This is another Kakejiku for the American Bonsai Society exhibition in September of 2013. It is a painting drawn by Natsuko Horinouchi. It is painted to be part of a winter display, and is an Onaga or Magpie. It is very simplistic, which would allow the bonsai to take the primary position of the display. If you would like a commissioned piece, please contact to for more information.

The scroll is done in an informal Maru Hyougu style and has a silver/gray cloth accented by a Navy flower karakusa (arabesque). The Ichimonji, (cloth bordering the painting) is a gold on gold flower karakusa. It is completed with a Navy Hanging string and black plastic Jikusaki. The simple style of the painting is reflected in the design and use of the other materials selected for this scroll.
