Peaceful Bamboo by Rebecca Rees

I am inspired by the peace and simplicity given by the bamboo.

Original painting was done with watercolor and dry brush pen on heavy stock, cream colored textured paper. Stamp in lower right corner is my name, Rebecca Rees, in chinese characters.

This my first original art work posted on red bubble.

I studied illustration and design at The Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. I am married and the mother of two wonderful boys; one is a college graduate and the other is currently attending college.

I am inspired by the elegance and simplicity of japanese ‘sumi-e’ and Chinese ‘shui-mo hua’ painting. I love the grace and beauty of bamboo.

    Beautiful..look forward to seeing your artwork

  • Thank you, your comments are encouraging. Next week, I think I will have some time to post more bamboo paintings. Painting is so relaxing and enjoyable…but, scanning, listing, posting….is so tedious.
