An invented landscape based on the outcome of a play session with charcoal and chalk, shown below.
The rain is falling incessantly, days are gray and moody. I am amazed at the effect it has on my mind, thoughts and emotions. While working on this painting I was reminded of the poem I quoted in an earlier post, and I think it is fitting that it go again with this painting:
Withered vine. Rotten tree, Dark cow, Little bridge, Running Stream, Homestead, Worn-out road, Western wind, Lean horse, The sun is setting in the west; The broken-hearted man is at the end of the earth. Ma-Chih-yuan (13th Century) Quoted in Creativity and Taoism, by Chung-yaun Chang
