Back to my roots

After a long (30+ years) hiatus, with fits and starts in between, I’m hoping to get back into Chinese ink painting. My dad has been trying to clear things out of his house and gave me many of his brushes, inks, and Chinese art books in hopes that I’d put them to better use than he did.

I plan to take this further along than I had previously–striving to make one small painting a day–but am worried that, in the end, I will disappoint him like most kids disappoint their parents.

And on that cheery note, here’s one I titled “Falling Petals” (9″x7.5″; 23cm x 19cm on watercolor paper). All these original paintings will be for sale for about $20 each, so let me know if you would like to purchase any! Contact form at
