This scroll was refurbished and remounted from an old scroll. The painting has a very faint understated home with mountains in the background and a stream. It is very beautiful and hope it works well with the bonsai of the gentleman who purchased this. He has built his own Toko no Ma, and I hope to see it hanging in there soon.
I decided to do it in a fukuro Hyougu style with a dark gray and Kon (navy) color suji. This provides a very nice touch with a neutral scene. Although I think the painting would go best with a fall scene, I felt that the neutral Winchester gray color would allow flexibility in displaying it in a variety of seasons.
