This is a five-day art challenge that I accepted.  I was tagged to do a three pieces painting for five days by Mary at Oil Pastels By Mary. Mary is a very talented artist.  Her work is incredible.  You will enjoy what you find at her blog.

Day two:  I did landscape (13.5 in x 18 in), plum blossom (13.5 in x 18 in) and chrysanthemum (13.5 in x18 in) paintings.  They are all painted using Chinese rice papers, ink & watercolour.  Plum blossom (winter) and chrysanthemum (autumn) are the remaining two of the four gentlemen that we have to learn as a foundation in Chinese painting.

I would love to see NE. Perkins at NE Photo-Images join in the challenge.  She is a very gifted artist who lives in Oklahoma.  You will enjoy her wonderful work at her blog.
