June 2009

I took hundreds of pictures during my two weeks in China last June. These are from the very early part of the trip spent in Yangshuo. This river trip was fascinating - the "mountains" that look so like the Chinese paintings one sees, are, in fact, limestone deposits. Vendors, balancing precariously on their shallow dugs, came right up to the boat and, while we collectively held our breath, managed, somehow, not to fall in. It was a misty day and a strong current from the heavy rains moved us about quickly.
I'll have many more to post - particularly when I have not managed to finish a painting without tearing it up.

  2. Thinking the same as Nick above. Do a portrait of the last photo cropped..Chinese man.

  3. Hmmmmm.....I haven't really applied myself to landscapes yet......Something to think about, Nick!

  4. Wow! I have to check my junk folder more often..Just found a couple of comments in there. So, thanks, Susan. I really loved this guys' face. He is a cormorant fisherman. The cormorants are his pets and provide him with his livelihood by diving for fish. You can see how they are tethered to the pole. And, they treat them extremely well...being pets of a kind too I suppose. :)
