What I love about Asian Brush Painting is the simple elegance of the natural subjects, plus the real and apparent spontaneity of the the process. Less is more. A few strokes can capture the beauty of a blossom or the fragility of a falling leaf.  There is a meditation quality to the process. I create each image at one sitting, with no preliminary drawing. The idea is to capture the natural essence of the image rather than a detailed botanical copy. These works combine elements of water color paintings and calligraphic line drawings, and, yet, have their own unique look and style. As an art historian, I love preserving and reinterpreting classic techniques for modern-day viewers.
