Tai Chi Horse Painting

The circular brushstrokes release vital energy derived directly from the realm of my meditative Tai Chi practices.

why I paint

Born in the Year of the Horse,
I never feel tired painting horses.
We share commonality in nature,
but I am not really painting the horse species.

The galloping horses embody high motion in tranquility.
They are the visualization of the realm during my sitting mediation.
Right postures in stillness; right gestures of Tai Chi movement.
Calm down – focus – wondering thoughts – focus – void.
There is a spot of bright light in void.
Within the light, I am speechless-
I touch the reason why I paint
