This scroll was just completed on October 30th, 2009. It is a Sandan Hyougu which means three step scroll. This has a Gold leaf pattern Ichimonji along with a Cocoa colored Chumawashi cotton cloth and a Forest Green Ten and Chi.
This picture was painted by Darlene Dihel a Sumi-e artist in the Seattle Washington area. It is a beautiful work.
I used the Green cloth to complement the color of the pine in the picture and the brown to represent the Earth from which everything grows.
