    Hello, there! I didn’t know that you are in Germany. Thank you for your continued encouragement. I consider myself a teacher or transmitter of Chinese art because there are thousands of Chinese artists who can create better artworks than me but they don’t speak English or know how to teach the foreigners Chinese painting, which is much more than being a good artist.

    Thanks, Linda. Good to hear a possitive comment from a southwestern viwer. I like the dry, rough beauty and grandeur, which is very different than Northwest or any other places that I have been.

    Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge, Henry! Chinese painting is so beautiful! Especially this one! I saw a display of Chinese art in a museum here and I always wondered how they could create such detail. Now I see that a lot of the detail is also in they eye of the beholder. It’s like magic how a simple stroke can create so much! I can hardly wait for part two!

    Good camera work too!
