Vangi Cathcart "Sunflowers" at the Joyful Jewel 2-21-15

Watercolor Sumi-e, from Henry Wo's class at Martha's Vineyard
16" x 26" original, framed to 23" x 33"

Vangi loves all flowers and grows a variety in her yard in Pittsboro, NC.  I know that she grows sunflowers and also chrysanthemums.  Flowers are common in oriental painting.  She says, "All over the world chrysanthemums bloom in the fall.  Their spectacular gold, orange, and maroon colors defy the frost and the colder weather still to come.  Because of this chrysathemum symbolize righteousness in oriental painting.  On a cold winter day, it's good to remember . . .
