Forest of Shadows
The phrase 'Be Well' is a greeting between friends that is used frequently in Africa. When I visited that lovely continent, I picked up this phrase and I use it often in my everyday communication with others. It has become a personal greeting known to all my friends. After experiencing a devastating stroke several years ago, this phrase grew to have a heartfelt meaning for me. The large round red chop is interpreted to mean 'Be Well'. I have used this chop on each of the Sumi-e paintings exhibited in this gallery.
The original sumi-e painting is available for purchase at the Gallery Be Well ~ Art Prints called Forest of Shadows are available at my Zazzle Gallery and Fine Art Reproductions are available in my SumiSpirit Gallery at ImageKind.
