Dynamism in Still ...

... by way of the blooming flowers and the crashing waves.

It's Monday, and another session of water color painting has come and gone. As Linda counted, three down, three more to go. And we better have some results to show.

The Three in One Session

The 3 in 1 are the chinese brush painting, chinese calligraphy, and chinese cooking, a triple set of activity that we engaged today at Teacher Yang's house. The culinary demonstration of interest: chinese buns and dumplings. Just see the focused look on Teacher Yang's face and the yummy appeal of the finished products, all cooked and ready to be served. Truly a morning plus an afternoon of uplifting experience in body/palate and soul, thanks to both Teacher Yang (Chinese calligraphy) and Teacher Celia Fan (Chinese brush painting).

There is a kind of hush ...

... all over the world, tonight.

Thanks to the late Mr. Chung-Lin Yu, one of my favorite painters whose fan painting is legendary, I am able to put up today's paintings.

Painting the outdoors in class

Linda and I have signed up for a water color painting class held at the Life Enrichment Center located on North Boulevard. The class is held every Monday over 6 weeks. And we had our second class today during which we worked on several paintings shown here . Our teacher is Mr. Frank Bolock, an experienced water color painter. He brought along his paintings for us to use as guides, and coached us patiently through the various coloring techniques.
