Hi Yu,

I do enjoy ukioye and have many books on the subject. I actually majored in Asian Studies in college and took a number of of courses in Chinese & Japanese art - along with political science and history. The pictures you see in the background are actually a picture of a doll and a flyer from a 2005 exhibit called "From Geisha to Diva: The Kimonos of Ichimaru". That was a very nice exhibit.

I only have one real ukioye print, it's a late one from 1940 by Toshi Yoshida. I keep it in the hall between my work rooms. He got the rainy atmosphere down perfectly in a woodblock - amazing!

Isuzu looks realistic in outdoor pictures. And thanks for showing us your collection of ukiyoe. It's amazing to represent rainy atomosphere without drawing falling rain drops

Hi Jim,

Glad to se the outdoorsy shots up. It looked mightily impressive indoors, outdoors, it takes on a whole new dimension in excellence. You did one heck of a job building this one and showed us lots of great tips along the way. Thanks for taking all the time with it.
