Part of my talk and demonstration about ink painting, 3 meters x 6 meters in 20 minutes.  I have been doing sporatic live paintings for over 25 years in Japan.  What a thing.

 Quite a while ago.  I remember the building air conditioning blew my white cloth like the sail of a great ship. This one was filmed for TBS TV.

This was the first and only Yanaka Ginza Matsuri.  I paintes a long thing called, "Ox Walk To Fuji."  My friend Matsuno-san and his group played bluegrass music from the stage below.

The live painting was a collaboration with a wonderful Oud concert.  It  was the final day of my mid career retrospective exhibition.
