Original bamboo drawing on heavy card stock. Including the border, it measures 5-1/4″ × 7-1/4". It is drawn with two different pale pink ink brush pens – and a delicate ink pen for the lines.
Drawn at The Huntington Library and Gardens in San Marino, California – June 24, 2011. I sat under the trees near the Bonsai garden.
The path of Zen leads to peace…
I am inspired by the elegance and simplicity of japanese ‘sumi-e’ and chinese ‘shui-mo hua’ paintings. This ‘one stroke style’ painting is from my ‘Beauty of Bamboo’ series. The bamboo is a magnificent gift from nature.
My drawings and paintings are created to relax the inner soul, bring peace and tranquility to the spiritual side of your nature.
“Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.”
