Bamboo painting for your enjoyment.
Original Sumi-e or Chinese Brush Painting of bamboo. I am an avid gardener dabbling in permaculture these days as a means to help the planet and my family. Planting some edible bamboo is one of my next projects on the to do list. In the mean time, I have been enjoying painting it, playing with brush strokes

Manatee pretties.
Chinese brush painting or sumi-e of a manatee, with a poem. The painting is done in Chinese ink and watercolor. The poem on the painting reads "May we use our brilliance wisely that we all might share this earth." Manatees are very gentle creatures who are relatives of elephants. But our modern world is ver

Original sumi-e or Chinese brush painting. The paper is acid free. The painting uses a combination of ink and watercolors. I have been experimenting with splashes of color, and allowing those to inspire the foreground painting. In this case, they made me think of a loose interpretation of a sunset. Here

Laser pointer magic. 
Original sumi-e or Chinese brush painting. 11.25 inches by 9 inches approximately. The paper is acid free. The painting uses Chinese ink.

Crab!
Chinese brush painting or sumi-e of a colorful crab, with a poem. The painting is done in Chinese ink and watercolor. I have been a fan of T. S. Elliot's "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock." In it he laments his aging and mediocrity, using many metaphors. But one that comes to mind often is a line about c

Chinese brush painting or sumi-e of a jaguar in the jungle, with a waterfall behind him. The painting is done in Chinese ink and watercolor. We donate to jaguar charities to help these beautiful creatures. They used to roam parts of the US, but for the most part you can't find them North of Mexico anymore.

Original Chinese brush painting or sumi-e of a bird among crab apple blossoms. I was experimenting with tree blossoms, because I have always found them beautiful. I have been enjoying planting fruit trees as part of my permaculture improvements around my house, and looking forward to the fruit. The painting
