The instructor, Tanshopan was a delight and had many suggestion for me to discover ways for me to express myself through my paintings. It was a perfect setting in Bassett Park on a sunny day to share ideas. I highly recommend taking a class from Tanshopan. She is very creative and thoughtful.

Inspiration for this was just flipping through some pictures I took of my garden earlier in the season. I wish the peonies bloomed longer! This painting was done using Chinese colors and brushes on black shuen paper.

Title or Location: Panda in a Tree
Pandas are a common subject in Chinese Brush painting and are very entertaining animals. They look like giant stuffed animals and are always hanging from branches in quirky poses. I painted this one using sumi ink and Chinese brushes on shuen paper.

Title or Location: Spider Chrysanthemum
Spider chrysanthemums are one of my favorite subjects to draw or paint. I love how the long thin petals unfurl from a tight bud into such a flowing mess. This one is just starting to open. It is done in graphite on a 5"x 7" piece of sketch paper.

Title or Location: Flying Eagle
I thought an eagle was a good subject for the 4th of July! This one is done on Dragon Cloud paper, which is made from mulberry bark and has white thread-like fibers embedded in it for texture. The eagle is in detail style. It is lightly drawn out using a very small brush and sumi ink. Then a layer of shading is added with just the ink, followed by several layers of color. The background is done in spontaneous style.

Title or Location: "Shattered"
Typically, I begin a geometric abstract with a rough idea in mind and sketch it out before painting. However, while working on this piece, it continuously shifted directions. After multiple erasures and re-drawings, I eventually started painting and surprised myself with the final result. It's truly astonishing to me as I'm not totally sure where it came from.

Title or Location: Little Birds
You never know what you will end up with when you paint birds in spontaneous style. The goal is to have the feel that they are doing or looking at something interesting. In this one, I definitely get the feeling that the bird in flight is being squawked at for flying to fast. The painting was done using Chinese brushes with sumi ink and Chinese colors on a double shuen paper.

Title or Location: Sunset at Boukari Harbour, Corfu
I started painting 6 years ago after attending a paint night at a local bar (just for fun) in Vancouver, Canada, where I had been living. I was addicted! Youtube videos have been a great way to learn and grow. The journey has been frustrating at times but it has also become my stress relieving activity.I visited Corfu at the beginning of June and loved the sunsets at this location in the South East of the Island. When I look at skies, clouds , water etc I am always imagining how to paint them

Title or Location: He sees me.
This was a new experience. I knew I needed to be more efficient at creating. So I prayed and with all my art work being are a form of praise and worship, each time I sat to paint, time disappeared. Yet I finished it quicker than any other piece. Once this was done I asked myselfhow'd you do that? I didn't, He did!

Title or Location:
Part of an unreal series from the land of dead birds exploring human extinction. The Unreal series are inspired by the bleak landscapes of Western Australia. In this instance the Blackwood River in Nannup. A poet friend who doesn't want to be named sends me photos she thinks would form a perfect backdrop for the land of dead birds. The birds themselves are Frankenstein compositions all framed by Art Nouveau/Lovecraftian inspired frames. The land of deadbirds is part of a wider exploration of war
