I studied with a Traditional Japanese Sumi e Master for four years. He always said, "You do not call yourself a Master, only others can say that about you". After being published on 'Simply Haiku' online magazine my search engine results for 'Sumi e Master' on MSN, Yahoo search engines showed me as number one. When I saw that result without my name, just 'Sumi e Master' I was delighted; it only took over 40 years!

Another experience I had was trying to win the state stamp contest. I watched what reactions people would have to my effort, some paused and looked. I had tried to follow previous stamp winners but when an Asian woman looked down at my work, her hands flew up and she started to say in a loud voice 'Sumi e', Sumi e'; she felt embarrassed and left. I will always be grateful to her for I returned to what I knew, that was 20 years ago. My style is Traditional Japanese Sumi e Art.
