The Japanese calligraphies I am using for my haiga have been assembled in the form of a scroll. It is about 15m(16.4yds.)long. The scroll was prepared by a friend of mine, who plans to sing the haiku and the story of Oku in Japanese style, accompanied by traditional Japanese musical instruments. He now wants me to add paintings on the scroll. It is already in scroll and is of rice paper so no redoing is possible. I am now painting carefully, and sometime boldly.
