Kaki (Persimmon) Sumi-e Scroll

This is a monochrome painting for a suiseki customer in Southern California. It is a beautiful simple scroll, that will go well with an informal
stone. I hope to see the final installation.

I did this in the Fukuro Hyougu style as it is the most simple for me based on what the customer wanted to present. It has a very dull grey/brown cloth that is nice for a fall feeling. It was painted by Mariusz Szmerdt, and he did an excellent job. The jikusaki is a lacquer that has a red orange tint, to help visually reinforce the painting's theme of a Kaki (persimmon). The suji surrounding the artwork and in the Ten and chi is a light gold, usukin. The hanging string is also an usukin.
