Wordless Wednesday

 A Good Day’s Work

Practitioners of this ancient art form seek to capture the “chi” (energy) of the subject, relying on the “Four Gentlemen,” or strokes. 

In a future blog, I will introduce Ann, display more of her work, and chat with her about her experiences introducing Sumi-e to elementary school students, the elderly, and anyone in between who seeks to discover, as Ann says, “the power a single stroke can have.”
