I worked on Cardinals about a year ago in Darlene Kaplan's class and was so frustrated. Then I painted them again about 6 months ago in Hsi-Mei's class. Still Frustrated. This past Saturday Hsi-Mei covered them again. I believe I'm finally starting to get the hang of it. Doing the strokes over and over really does help. The best part about a blog is I control what I show you. All of my mistakes turn 
into wrapping paper. I have a lot of wrapping paper.

Chinese Brush Art Christmas Card - Silent Night

I am back !!!   After a long sabbatical, I have returned to the studio - where I belong.  And, just in time for our first Winter's storm (maybe).  I finished our 2013 Christmas card just in time.  I hope you like it.  I call it "Silent Night".  I studied snow in Henry Wo Yue-Kee's class and it was the inspiration for the snow in this painting.  I studied the birds in Hsi-mei Yates' class.  It's a nice combination, don't you think?

This is my third Chinese Brush Art Christmas Card.  Last year's card was a cardinal.  The year before was a poinsettia.
