Artist's Description

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

This image of a cicada was designed as a summer greeting card with the formulaic Japanese summer greeting: “Hoping this finds you well in spite of the heat of mid-summer,” but I’ve left the words out of this version.

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”).

Featured in Art in Asia group.
