One Breath Qi Paintings
Here is an example of such a attempt. I call it “Annie’s Wraith” in honor of the spirit of my little cocker, Annie. I’d just been told she had a very aggressive cancer and hadn’t long to live. I’d been too sad to do much and was simply lying on the sofa staring out the window, when I had the idea, “Go mix water, honey and ink on a plate and take its picture.”
I did that and was shocked by what the camera captured. Then, I added the calligraphy. I have made more joyous paintings, but none speaks deeper to my soul.
