Guest Artist

Today and Tuesday I sat in on lecture over traditional Chinese painting by Li Zhiqiang. It was very interesting to see the concepts behind each style of work. The paintings were also beautiful and wish I had been free to sit in on his demonstration. It was his first time in the U.S. I believe and didn't speak the language, but more than made up for the language barrier by his viewpoints and such.
