This is my third time of visiting this calligraphy exhibition specialized in calligraphy of kana, or Japanese phonetic letters. Although I know this is a conceited comment, I am certain its level has kept rising. So, I was really looking forward to visiting its next exhibit. However, to my great disappointment, I heard this time would be the last.
Now, I do hope calligraphers assembled here will organize a new group and organize a new exhibition series.
The other day I wrote about my old works I happened to find. The photo shows one of the others. The pieces I wrote last time was kana (system of characters invented in Japan based on Chinese characters) works while this one is kanji (Chinese characters) piece. And another thing about is it seems I had it lined. What I liked about it, I wonder?
If you have a favorite character or phrase that you would like me to write, please let me know by sending it (them) to my address, email@example.com.
I posted photos of my teacher’s models of tasks for a test of teacher’s qualification that my teacher gave me about forty years ago and my present results practicing them. They were of print style and semi-cursive style. Now the photo here are my present results practicing with my teacher’s models of cursive style and kana, Japanese phonogram. I have identified myself as a qualified teacher of the school established by my teacher for more than forty years and now after those many years, I can’t help but wonder what level of calligraphy I handed in and got this qualification at the time.
