Joan Lok sumi-e demo for Women Artists' Forum on Lunar New Year


I was invited by the Women Artists' Forum to present the art of sumi-e at their spring meeting on February 10, 2013.  I discussed the differences between the art of the East and the West in materials, subject matters, and composition.  It was also the Lunar New Year, so I painted peonies, the symbol of good fortune, for the demo.  It's a perfect way to start the new year.
