Hawk Winter Sumie

 This is a picture of a Hawk. It is not clear or detailed, but the brushwork is very powerful. In some ways, too powerful to be displayed with a bonsai, but we will see if there are any at the convention that will match to this painting. It was drawn by Natsuko Horinouchi.

I mounted the painting in a simple Fukuro Hyougu style, with a white cloth to help show off the black dots in the painting that to me represent snow and the dark image. I then finished it with a black plastic jikusaki and a Kon Hanging String.
