Appreciation of fountain pen calligraphy
A few years back when I visited the American National Archive, I saw some masterpieces of Chinese calligraphy which were actually the handwritten offcial documents of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) that were taken and stored in the US. I was really amazed, exclaiming "Aren't they in print?" but the answer is no. They are 100% real handwriting done by the secretarial clerks to the high officials or the officials themselves. As we all know, in those days, an offcial that could become an officia ...

Share No Deal
2019-3-20 10:16
Recently I nearly had one of my work of art sold to a lover. The painting is very nice, in which there is a lady in Chinese style dress who is playing a flute and it is very vivid, showing the beauty of the traditional Chinese females, either in posture or in manners. So I am very convinced the buyer was highly impressed. But why no deal? That guy is a businessman and he said all his money has been tied up in his business and that now what he can offer is the wine worth 400 thousand ...

Even I myself did such foolish thing during my earlier days, here I would lik ...

Share Regarding Election
2019-1-13 17:01
Today I learned the news that one member of Democratic Party who is also a congresswoman will join the battle for next presidency of the United States. But with her predecessor Hilary Clinton losing a few years back without really knowing the reason, her efforts to challenge the billionaire are most probably brushed aside into the waste basket. That also reminds me the local election in my neighborhood a while back. When there were two candidates given on the public notice and on ...

My Dream to Become a World Class Painter
It was a while back, yeah, quite a long while, when Internet was something non-existing even in our wildest dreams. Having read a notice in a trade magazine of fine arts calling for paiting works to be exhibited and evaluated for award, I began my strenuous painting of copying a masterpiece and lasted for many days and nights. On completion, I loved my work so much as if it was my son and that I was reluctant to send it to the organizer. However, knowing that if I did not make this known to the ...

      kevinruud: Why not show us your family heirloom? Today's students are too tired to make good writings in their daily work.
      This is a good idea! But I have not uploaded any photo onto the forum since one year ago due to technical problem! Maybe The CD meeds hardware updating or improvement!  Sooner or later I will do the job!

      SEARU: In ancient China ‘students’ were asked or forced to put almost all of their energy on brush-writing and bamboo-calculator sums. So many ordinary sch ...
