Gazing out over the sound the water is an ever changing palette. The mountains float over the water softened by trees and misty clouds from which high peaks emerge. Mountains, water and sky merge, each one distinct yet one cannot be defined without the other. Nature and the Universe interplay, and the artist becomes part of the dance.
In Chinese landscape painting it is about capturing the essence and feel of what the artist sees and not an actual representation. The artist paints from within, drawing from personal experience and the mind's eye, as well as from the spiritual influences of Buddhism and Taoism. We see not only the personal interaction of the artist with nature, but also sense the soul and mind of the artist. The communication with the audience becomes an experience that transcends the surface to that mystical place that is a blending of the essence of nature and that of the artist
