Red Flower, 32x32"

Q Li Holmes Oriental Arts

My painting flows along with my life, and "new expression" is the call at present. And as always, the joy of balancing on minimal ground thrills me.

My painting has also evolved from my Chinese origins and life in Western Massachusetts . I inherited the ancient path of Chinese art traditions which reaches back in time to vistas of misty mountains and glimpses of rain-soaked lotuses, sentient stones and pensive bamboo, but my life in New England has also given me a second nature of maple-lined roads, lichened stone walls and open fields with an occasional weathered barn.

The media are mineral color, rice paper or canvas.
