Chinese brush painting artist:
After returning in late April from a fantastic artists trip to China, hosted by Dr. Ning Yeh and his wife, Ling Chi Yeh, I could not come down from the excitement and enthusiasm it generated. I received instruction from some of the best Chinese Brush artists in the world, including professor Su Bo Dou (苏柏斗）, the foremost Gong Bi (工笔画) artist in Beijing, all of China, and probably the entire world. He hosted our group's lessons at his beautiful studio in Beijing.
Soon after recovering from jet lag, my enthusiasm still sky-high, I began visiting with Ann Crouch, the owner of The Galleries at Sunset Center about renting a studio. I also communicated our discussions with the boss, President of Shining Sword Studio, Vicki Eder, and decided to rent the vacant Studio Number 58 on May 6, 2013.
During the past several years, my friend, Tong Steinle, a brilliant Chinese Paper Cutting artist, has shown her work beside my Chinese Brush Paintings at gallery exhibits held at the Panhandle Art Center. I knew that our work was a wonderful contrast of two beautiful and unique Chinese art forms. So I immediately asked Tong if she would be interested in showing at my new studio. She was as excited as I was about the prospect and we began formulating plans for China Art. She is great at computers and has designed this page, always with my total agreement with regard to content, etc., and made it something we can be proud of.
Both Tong and I hope that you will enjoy our efforts at promoting our art and that you will visit this page often and come see us in our new gallery/studio, China Art.
