Painting - Ink On Rice Paper
When the cold autumn wind starts to blow and all other flowers have faded away, the lovely chrysanthemum starts to bloom. Defeating wind, rain and snow, it unfolds its delicate petals in all its beauty. A delightful sight, and its fragrance, so sweet! In Chinese painting the chrysanthemum symbolizes nobility and the courage to endure with grace the hardships of all adversities.
This sumi painting depicts the chrysanthemums with a direct and wet brush work.
