Antique Calligraphy Brush 20 x 16 Oil on Panel

Last fall someone gave me this wonderful Chinese calligraphy brush.  I kept it on a table just waiting to figure out what kind of setup to paint with it as the main object.  It all came together when I got the pottery made for me.  I incorporated the way I paint my nests with the way I painted the brush hairs.  It worked out and now I plan on doing another painting with brushes.  One of these days I will paint the marsh landscape that I took a photo of this last summer.  With that painting I plan to paint the grass with the same technique as the brush and nest so that it incorporates my style of painting.

On to the next brush painting that I have setup.  Hopefully I will get it started this weekend.
