For a long time I have been intrigued by Calligraphy. It is a beautiful art with a deep philosophy, It is a written language read by Chinese, vietanmese, Koreans and Japanese although they use different pronounciation.
"The Heart of the Brush", The Splendor of East Asian Calligraphy has a different approach to it that allows the art to be taught easily.
My first surprise is how much similarity there is between TAi Chi and Calligraphy!. You breath the same way while doing it and the philosophy behind either art is essential to its understanding.
Practice, pratice makes perfect.

As right now I am the happiest artist.
As part of my new year 2019 resolutions I wanted to take some Tai Chi classes to work on the concept of energy and take some calligraphy workshop to learn the tradional discipline of chinese fine art.
As it turns out I think that Tai Chi classes will be enough for me in 2019 . Both of these two disciplines require hours and many years of praticing to really integrate the full chinese rigourous forms of art.
Tai Chi is not disappointing me, to no surprise, and will probably cover the discovery of the energy in the movement I am looking for and more.
I decided to go ahead and do a succinct research on possible tai Chi classes on internet. I began to look for close to my studio places, so the commmute would no become to be a burden.
The closest one was just 13 minutes away. For the purpose of being efficient I decided to call them and have a feel for the place over the phone. The first exchange with the instructor was good, he was himself an artist and I could come next wednesday.....
So without knowing much about the different styles of Tai Chi I could choose from, I went head first.
One hour after a Tai Chi Chen Style practice with Professor Florin Szondi, 20th Generation Lineage, Chen Taiji Family and I was hooked. I know that a lot of practice and time and hard work will have to happen. but I know that it is exactly what i was looking for.
I am so inspired and I know that Tai Chi Chen Styles practice will bring energy, movement, balance and more to my art. It will bring MUCH MORE to my over 50 year old body and mind too.
Lucky me. Stay tuned!

I was invited by DANTE'S OLD SOUTH RADIO to record an interview on WUTC in Chattanooga, TN and I am very grateful for that. It felt as I was live on radio though.I went on talking too much about something I did not want to give the priority to and did not really talk as much as I wanted about my art and myself because It has always been so hard to talk about me and the part of myself I put into my painting- which is about the whole me- There is a reason why I paint and do not do conferences, isn't it?
It will air Jan 20, 2019 at 8:00pm on NPR, FM 88.1 . if you are interested . Feedback welcome.

This 48x48in Vinyl on canvas artwork has been a success on social media. It is certainely one of the public favorites.URBANE BRONZE 1. Warm, earthy but a lot of light, this is the perfect balance for a central piece. It will be easily the focal point of any room. I can help you get the perfect wooden floater frame to go with it. Gold or champagne color looks very good with it.
