Chi Gong #2 – watercolor on layered translucent polypropylene – 51 x 36″

Chi Gong #2 was developed specifically for the ART Santa Fe fair.  You can see it hanging in the Lady Minimalists Tea Society booth in the post below this one.  I had a very narrow space in which to show my work, so a vertical painting was called for.  This is not by any means the first time I’ve worked in a vertical format.  It’s a favorite of mine for the way vertical paintings can be “read” or felt as analogues for the human body.  And the Chi Gong series – which simply means energy work – presents an abstract evocation of my daily health/meditation chi gong practice.
