Friday Art & History Feature - Japanese Art

I've been on all things Japanese kick lately...again. So today, I wanted to let you enjoy some examples of Japanese art that I love. As many other things in the Japanese culture, the art is often simple and minimalistic, which makes it so beautiful and unique. (There are also a couple of pieces inspired by Japanese art).

Happy Friday!
