Day 3 — Different kinds of marchés

These two consecutive weekends I attended two different

marchés.

.

One is a monthly event and smaller in size.

.

The other is much bigger and originally held semiannually.

.

I enjoyed both events; different sizes, different locations, different systems, different kinds of visitors.

.

In other words, I had a valuable experience this September.

Day 2 — Hide and seek

The photo shows a small part of my booth at the marché.

.

These “light” and “laugh or smile” don’t disclose their entire bodies but they hide some parts with pieces of thinner paper.

.

I did this following someone’s hint for creating something new.

Day 1 of the September Art Marché

Unfortunately, maybe because of the weather wasn’t very good, we had only a few visitors.

.

I hope more people will come to the venue to enjoy this fun, art event.  It will be open tomorrow (Saturday) and the day after tomorrow (Sunday).

.

Here is more information about this fun event.  The venue is here and the period is till Sunday September 20th.

New Moon in the Virgo and one more

Tonight’s moon is the Virgoan new moon.  I hope something drastically new happens.

.

Another character means “sky, vault of heaven, eternal time” and what not.

Feeling nostalgic 2

The other day I wrote about my copying practice years ago.

.

Here is another similar one, which I must have done around the same time as the former one for my first solo exhibition at the beginning of 2009.

Regular practice

The photo shows my new copying practice of the model that my first teacher left for me.

.

I am afraid I could do better.  For, I got too nervous here.

September Art Marché

It is a pleasure for me to announce that I was allowed to participate in this event.

.

I hope many people interested in Japanese style calligraphy will come to the venue during the period from Friday, September 18th to Sunday, September 20.

Day 2

Today was the Day 2 of the big event, the Kyoto Art Craft Market.

.

The event’s venue was in an old building, which was the former Bank of Japan Kyoto Branch.

.

Through this event, I had many new and fresh experiences, meeting and talking with new people and learning many new things about turning your favorite pastime into business.

.

I am more than happy to have participated in it and profoundly grateful to all the people that helped me do things well in the event.

Who is this?

It was the Day 1 of the big event, the Kyoto Art Craft Market.

.

A lady from the office of this event said, “If you use this “face shield” with your glasses, the whole world would instantly become foggy” and soon it turned out that she was quite right.

.

At the end of today, I got very exhausted because of the severe lingering heat, strong sunshine and humidity.  Still, I had such a good time meeting and talking with many people at the venue.

.

Now, I am looking forward to experiencing more fun there tomorrow!

Grandpa’s calligraphy

This is the official enumeration of commemorative gifts from my grandfather on my mother’s side to my grandfather on my father’s side on the occasion of my parents’ engagement.

.

I found this when cleaning and getting rid of unnecessary household goods.

.

As I thought my grandpa’s calligraphy was pretty good, I asked my paperer to frame it into a scroll.

New works

The photo shows my new works on Tanzaku or narrow strips of paper for calligraphy.

.

I hope they will be loved at the venue of this big event.

On wood, this time

I tried some of the same motifs as before on wood.

.

Paper, wood, cloth; they are very attractive as bases for calligraphic pieces.
