Sumi-e and Chinese Brush Painting

I have begun a six week online class with Henry Li of Blue heron Arts.

Painting in ink can be very relaxing when the mood is right. The energy flowing through the artist to the paper via the ink and brush is very meditative. When it does not go right Ink is the Devil's handmaiden!

Here are three that I have recently done. The inscription on the mood seal is a Confucian saying "To study, then you know you don't know enough" or "We know the deficiency after learning".

The caligraphy is my signature and the title "Orchid".
