Lucifer Hummingbird with Fuchsia, by Mary Stebbins Taitt. I made this small "Chinese Brush Painting" for Soldier Boy, my step-son, for his birthday. It will be placed on a card and given to him today at our annual family holiday event at ML's. I gave him another brush painting last year. A sad thing happened to that painting, but luckily, I scanned it. The black symbols on the bottom right mean peace, if I rendered them correctly, and the red symbols in the box are my signature. Since I never developed a signature, today's symbol means "wolf," which is one of my alter egos ("Lupo Grigio").
