The Japanese calligraphies I used for my Basho haiga had 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 wanted me to add paintings on the scroll. It was already in scroll format and is of rice paper so no re-doing was possible. I painted carefully, and sometime boldly. We need to be inventive as to how we exhibit this long long thing at the museum exhibition.
