Share your Scroll(s)

I have been looking for scrolls for around 10 months. They can be almost as addicting as teaware ... almost. So, I hope you will share a scroll with your fellow TeaChatters.

My favorite themes are cranes, pine trees, and bamboo to name a few. This one is pretty old, supposedly, but no info was available, nevertheless, it is a fave of Mrs. Chip and me.

I had to look away from them for a while, it was cutting into tea and teaware budgets.

Here's one of our newest editions, a present I received last week. I really tend to like the cranes in pairs. The subtle colors portrayed in this one are extremely pleasing to the eye. Hope you enjoy it.

Thanks everyone, they really are quite striking.
The ambiance they provide is awesome, especially while sipping tea.

This is not exactly a scroll but it is certainly inspired by one. It was drawn by a friend of mine in high school in the style of Japanese block print. I believe it is charcoal pencil but he did a lot of similar cross hatching work in pen.

I have been hanging it ever since, and had it framed a few years ago. It graces the entry way to my house.

Don't have a photo of the scroll (my only one) yet.
This is not a scroll, but something on my wall that I like a lot

Thanks everybody for sharing these... very interesting!

Tim, who is the original author/painter of your scroll?

Is there a poetry translation? ;-)
