Chastain Art Center Week 1

It was good to gather with brush painting lovers to paint together for a morning.  I shared that brush painting in many ways is like a performance.  When you paint, it is like giving a recital.  The strokes are perfected through practice. The understanding comes through daily digestion of the subjects.  The composition is  your choreography of your accumulated understanding.  The expression embrace your collected delight and aspiration.  The painting exudes your philosophical attainment and reach.  The whole painting represent your signature.  No one can copy it.  They can receive your spirit as a disciple as you apprentice under other great masters.  The technique makes technitions, it is the spirit that makes masters. So the main challenge for a artist is to take care that your spirit is aligned to the highest worthy spirit you can find.
