I have been exploring the Ancient Chinese concept of painting as silent poetry and poetry as painting with sound. This concept appears in the West in the 19th century with J.M.W. Turner, who wrote poetry about the subjects of his watercolors, and  with French poet Stephane Mallarme, who wrote poetry that coincided with Impressionist painting. I continue to use nature as a basis for watercolor exploration of the effects of clouds, mists, and water.
