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.
