Chinese brush painting on acid-free watercolor paper

By C Shore

This painting was inspired by Ms Shore's passion for tulips, her favorite flower.

She loves the play between the positive and negative shapes in this piece. 

Chinese Brush painting is the artistic dance of the fingers and hands. Each stroke

commands precise movement with a particular rhythm. Ms Shore studies techniques

of painting, and drawing at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art, at the

University of California Los Angeles, at international workshops, and with Nan Rae Parker

at her Pasadena Studio. Ms Shore is a Kaiser Permanente member. She has been an

educator in the Los Angeles Unified School District, employing all forms of art within the

classroom. She found that being bilingual and using art throughout the curriculum were

successful tools to teach subject matter to limited English proficient

students. Ms Shore continues to advance her education in art and language.
