PAINTBRUSHES & PAINTS FOR CHINESE BRUSH PAINTING

At a brush painting workshop recently, I was enjoying looking at how each person kept their paintbrushes & paints in different ways.  The teacher that demonstrated that day unrolled his brushes & he probably had a hundred of them!  One person just has her brushes in a blue & white jar & another one has her brushes securely attached in a bamboo brush holder.  Since these brushes can cost $50 each, it pays to take good care of our sacred tools.  I really liked the little porcelain dishes jumbled up in a box with chips of Chinese paint in them!  Part of the ritual of brush painting is to set up our paints prior to painting and obtaining a peaceful mindset.  I cherish my brushes & paints as they allow me a freedom of expression all my own.
