This is an Etegami painting on a soft washi card. Etegami is a traditional Japanese folk art that combines simple images with thoughtful words.
The image of ripe persimmons on the branch are accompanied by the words “In the Fullness of Time.”
Materials used for this piece are sumi ink, gansai paints, and absorbent washi cardstock. The drawing tools I used are natural fiber Japanese writing brushes and coloring brushes. Dimensions of the original work are 10cm x 15cm (approx. 4” x 6”).
