Mainichi Hanafuda: peony ribbon

This card introduces another ribbon variation: the blue (in Korean decks) or purple ribbon (in Japanese decks). This is the third and final style of ribbon in hanafuda, including the blank red ribbons and 'poem' ribbons. Two other purple ribbons are yet to come.

As I'm examining flowers and trees for this drawing project, I find that I'm also more aware of them in nature. During my daily walks to work, I'm attuned to the detail of individual leaves or the curve of a flower's petals. Drawing is a good habit for appreciating life!
