Artist's Description

The image of a squash plant pushing its way through a crack in the pavement was inspired by the “gutsy” fruits and vegetables (in Japan, they are commonly known as “do-konjo yasai”) that are sometimes found pushing their way through asphalt and other adverse circumstances, such as in the aftermath of an earthquake or tidal wave. Their resilience and determination to survive, and even thrive, lends courage to people who are themselves struggling in life.

This is a hand-painted Etegami on a soft washi card. Etegami is a traditional Japanese folk art that combines simple images with thoughtful words.
