Jean's Blossoming Bunka

I became involved with Bunka many years ago. As a young child I found this form of Oriental Art to be very appealing to the eye and wondered how it was done but, it wasn't until I was in college, that I managed to get my hands on my first kit, the design was a cart filled with flowers. I thought it was very pretty, not realizing that there would be a meaning behind the cart until my friend from Japan told me and I came to realize that almost all Japanese art work has a meaning to it.
