I pack for a trip—
In hope and anxiety,
Dog waits by the door.

This poem and painting, featuring a cute worried dog next to a little suitcase with a paw print, capture that intense mix of emotions a dog faces as its beloved human prepares to leave town. Many dog owners will recognize that woebegone yet hopeful expression as their dog parks himself by the front door, anxiously waiting to learn his destiny. This funny piece makes people laugh and say "awww..." at the same time. Share it with anyone who appreciates the sweetness and absurdity of life with canine companions.

I wrote this haiku and then painted the piece with sumi ink on rice paper. This piece is from my series, Haiku for Dog Lovers, which reflects the humor and Zen wisdom I find in living with dogs. You can see more about this on my website: http://www.makinostudios.com

The photos above show the print image, a detail of the image, and a closeup of my personal seal. The last photos show me at work with my Japanese ink stone, ink stick, bamboo brushes and rice paper.

This is an 8" x 10" digital print, professionally printed on an HP Indigo press that produces offset-quality reproductions. Prints are made using fade-resistant ink on acid-free paper from a supplier that is certified to be 100% carbon-neutral. I individually sign each print and stamp it in red with a personal Chinese seal bearing my name. It will fit in a standard 8x10 mat or frame.

This piece is packaged flat with a piece of mat board in a self-sealing cellophane sleeve; a flyer describing my work is enclosed. It ships first class in a sturdy photo mailer.

This image is also available as a 5x7 print or blank greeting card.
