Had a free morning so I did a little exploring and a little painting. Near Yamato Saidaiji station there are some ancient tombs and next to them is this slightly less ancient house. It had a lot of personality with its sagging roofline and rusted corrugated steel siding. Hanging from bamboo rods in the shadows were many onions; I have no idea why, other than perhaps that’s how they dry them. It looked like the place was about to fall down, which made me like it even more.
In other news, I was pleased to have my painting “The Fiddler” in a recent exhibit at the Miraku Fine Art Gallery in Nara-ken. It’s a very nice gallery.
