Something is missing

標準

I tried to create a new version of “calligraphy on simple postcards”, this time combining letters used in modern days and my favorite, ancient letters.

.

However, the results don’t look good enough and I wondered how and where I did wrong and found out there was way too little blank space.

.

Now, I am determined to try to make better works; for three reasons,

(1) I love any kind of combination,

(2) ancient letters naturally are closer to “pictures”, origin of letters and

(3) these small simple works of art may realize the ideal “Joy of calligraphy in daily lives” held out by my first calligraphy teacher the late Mr. Akiyama Kodo (秋山公道).
