Another Richard Man Wallscroll

This is another work by Richard Man.
This looks to me to be the character 
In Japanese this can read Yasui or Yasashii which can mean easy. However, it also has a meaning of fortune telling or divination. It looks to be written in Gyousho or Semi-Cursive style.

I made this scroll in the Fukuro Hyougu style, which is simple and elegant. I used a darker gold Suji (ribbon around the artwork) and a lighter reed color cloth. The Hanging string is a Kincha or gold and the Jikusaki are plastic 9 bun pieces.

Obviously he likes his works large this is a chart of the dimensions.
