My Shodo Sensei is too cool. She’s a master of the craft, of course. Her specialty is modern style. You have a lot more freedom, and has a lot more “meri-hari” which means curves and bumps, sort of.
She’s creating a piece for a museum exhibition, and rather than just go for the traditional stuff, she wrote these two. They both are the same phrase. The left is done while holding two brushes. The right with nine. Nine!
I love the contents, too. It’s not some obscure Chinese quotation, it Saya, “Let’s see what it’s like to ride the flower petals blowing on the wind.”
My Sensei rocks.
