I was talking to some great friends and one suggested that I do a rabbit for Easter so I took her advice and here goes. Thanks Pam. Peter Cottontail was hopping down the bunny trail and stopped here briefly for a quick Chinese Brush Art portrait. I hope I have done you justice Peter.

Having spent more than 9 years in Japan on three different occasions, the cherry blossoms carry special meaning and emotion for me. This is an example of one of my Chinese Brush Art painting of some local cherry blossoms.

This is the first Chinese Brush Art painting that I sold. I participated in the Potomac Bonzai Festival at the United States National Arboretum on New York Avenue in Washington D.C. in 2011. I was honored to have the President of the Potomac Bonzai Association purchase my work. This is an annual festival and the next one is scheduled for 3, 4 and 5 May 2013. Hope to see you there.

This particular watercolor was inspired by friends of thirty years, The Wilsons of Leesburg, Virginia. We've shared countless bottles of fine wine and great conversations over the years. As with my other Chinese Brush Art works, this is only the beginning. Like a fine wine, I hope my works will improve with age and practice. Imagine these grapes after 10,000 brush strokes of practice !!

I started Chinese Brush Art about 2 years ago. My first paintings were what you might expect from someone just beginning. This blog is about that journey of 10,000 practice strokes in search of that one 'perfect stoke'. And like my Chinese Brush Art journey, this is my first post of 10,000 on the way to the 'perfect' post.
