Delayed fulfillment of a promise

標準

These are for my dear friend from high school days.

.

.

I met her a month ago at a kind of a reunion and promised her to write one letter from her name 美 meaning “beauty”.

.

.

Actually, I am very grateful for her appreciation for my calligraphy, which is always encouraging for me when I practice calligraphy and try to create something new.

.

.

By contrast, there sure are some people who just don’t think good about my calligraphy.  Those people even won’t say flattering things about my calligraphy even though they fully know I have been practicing it for long.

.

.

For that reason, I knew I should have delivered on my promise immediately.  However, in actuality, these days I have only been thinking how I could make a good piece of the letter.

.

.

It took about a month and the worse thing is I only came up with my old idea, that is, a combination of a letter used at present and an ancient form of the same letter.

.

.

I sent her these two and the one put behind is my little, old piece with a phrase “fruitful, gracious showers” because she is precisely that sort of good-natured person.

I live in Kyoto, Japan, where I was born and raised. I began practicing calligraphy at age seven under the late Akiyama Kodo, a distinguished master of calligraphy whose calligraphic works are found even today on stone monuments for public parks and fasciae for long-established businesses. Despite my age, I think I am increasingly active in my calligraphic practice. "My works give the impression of lightheartedness and overflowing vitality, evoking the dance of air and the flow of clear water" is what people tell me, I am happy and proud to tell you. My distinct style has attracted many followers both domestic and abroad. Having continued for over half a century to be evolving as a calligrapher, I am never willing to compromise. May accomplishments: Solo exhibition, 2009 and three group exhibitions in Kyoto, Japan (2011, 2013, 2015) Participation in a group exhibition in Poznan, Poland, November 2017 Productions as requested from individuals, businesses and citizen’s movements
