First Brush of 2016

Blue Pine Ridge
by Casey Shannon

Sumi-e 10.5 x 15.5
MASA Paper
Sumi (ink) and Japanese Watercolor

This is my First Brush of 2016. There is a lovely tradition in Japan that on the 2nd of January in the New Year everyone makes their First Brush. It can be sumi-e (painting) or Shodo (calligraphy). Every year I do the same. I keep this tradition here in the United States. Doing so makes me feel as a participant in a greater Sumi whole. I feel the spirit and energy of all the other Sumi artists. We paint together. We First Brush!
