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

Materials used for this piece are sumi ink, gansai paints, and absorbent washi cardstock. The drawing tools I used are a bamboo quill pen and a natural fiber Japanese coloring brush. Dimensions of the original work are 10cm x 15cm (approx. 4” x 6”).

    milk and one sugar please………

  • Um, it is green tea in the tea pot. In Japan, we wouldn’t drink it any way but plain. Nevertheless, don’t let me stop you from adding what you like. : )
