and on to the drawing board
I have started the calligraphy component on ten works for my upcoming exhibition.
February 7 - 28 2014.
I have chosen to use some of my fine eco-dyeing papers with the words of
Otagaki Rengetsu (1791 - 1875). Rengetsu, a Japanese Buddhist nun was a potter, a poet, a calligrapher and a painter
and is believed to have created over 55,000 pieces in her life.
The words of her poems resonate with me and I enjoy working them with my naturally dyed papers.
