Gina, these are beautiful. It was enlightening to read about the prints. Have you been to Japan? I was there twice and could kick myself for not sniffing out at least one original!

G. R. Collia

Believe it or not, I've been all over the place but not Japan yet. That is going to be remedied next year- we have a trip all planned out. I have no willpower, so I am going to have to wear blinkers when in the presence of Japanese prints... That, or take out a second mortgage and sell my extended family!

Crafty Green Poet

it's a wonderful picture, and I like your explanation of physiognomy

G. R. Collia

I'm glad you enjoyed it!
