Orchids, Chinese Brush Painting, by Mary Stebbins Taitt. I've been reading about Chinese brush painting and making various attempts at it. I can see why Zen brush painting is good for Zen practitioners; it really takes a lot of attention and I am NOT very good at it. The middle one was done on newsprint, which is recommended for beginner to practice on. But they don't come out as nicely.
I am also trying to learn the lettering but I am even worse at that. I understand that it has to be exactly right or means something else, but I know mine is NOT exactly right so I will tell you what it is supposed to mean: return to serenity. View my rocks here.
