Condiments for Conversation (soy sauce 1) by 

This etegami depicts a kind of glass server for soy sauce that is found in Japanese homes, along with a dipping dish and wooden chopsticks in a paper sleeve. I mixed sparkly gansai paints with ordinary purple gansai to produce a luminescent effect that doesn’t show very well in the scanned version. The original has a soft sparkle.

Featured on Inspirational Greeting Cards group.

I am a professional Japanese-to-English translator and an Etegami artist. Etegami is a traditional Japanese folk art that combines thoughtful words with simple images painted on washi paper.

    You know, this isn’t as easy as it sounds, I am always trying to perfect my attitude and watch my tongue in conversations. Some day I may get it all right, when Jesus comes back that is!
