はんせい、Hansei

My daughter asked me to write (draw, sketch, paint?) this kanji for her office. It means reflection; reconsideration; introspection; meditation; contemplation, -according to Jim Breen's online Japanese/English dictionary (A most excellent resource, by the way.).

 

To mount the finished kanji: I dampened the paper, carefully brushed out any wrinkles and flattened in on a stainless steel surface, dampened the mounting sheet and applied paste to it, laid it carefully over the rice paper brushing out any air bubbles, lifted the mounted sheet off the steel underplate and dried with an old, large, photo dryer.

 

9"X16" "rice" paper mounted on Bristol board.
