Chrysanthemum - Janet-Ferrier Robinson
Janet told me she painted this beautiful composition after a frustrating morning. "I grabbed my Mr. Wu Universal Brush and bashed this one out in ink on an offcut of Linen paper - I thought it was rubbish because the painting was too close to the edge until I realised I had the perfect space left on the other side for the calligraphy!"

A beautiful painting in Ling Nan style.
Shikishi Board Peony
Not the best painting of a Peony, (by me - Julia Martin) but it does look beautiful on the Shikishi board in gold as the gold sparkles through the paint. Shikishi board comes from Japan for Chinese Brush Painting , in various sizes and colours - best part is that there is no need to back your paintings - why not give them a try.
Bird and fruits by Vicki Martin
Vicki completed this vibrant painting in a class tutored by Jane Evans.
Dragon by Julia Martin - after Talia LeHavi
I painted this dragon at a one day workshop with the Suiboku-ga (pictures of ink and water) artist Talia LeHavi. Talia is a wonderful artist and spiritually inspirational - I learnt a great deal - Talia says that what is in our hearts flows through our arms, hands and brush to paint 'true' pictures of the heart.

Annie Holland is a student of Li Xiao Bai and he has written the beautiful cursive style calligraphy on her painting of grapes - they are exceptionally good.
