“Motu” is an original acrylic and ink brush pen wash painting. It is painted on an 8-1/2″ × 11″ heavy stock, textured egg shell colored paper.
In the language of beautiful Tahiti, the word “motu” means small island, or islet. It is one of the many homes of the graceful bamboo.
I am inspired by the elegance and simplicity of japanese ‘sumi-e’ and chinese ‘shui-mo hua’ paintings. This painting is from my ‘Beauty of Bamboo’ series.
