Original bamboo drawing/painting on Strathmore Imperial Watercolor 140 lb Cold Press paper using a combination of lavender/purple ink brush pens and traditional watercolor paints.
Created at The Huntington Library and Gardens in San Marino, California while 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 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.”
