This is an 8x10 on Black Ampersand Claybord of a Tai Chi pose. I've been studying and practicing Tai Chi for over 10 years! C&C

:thumbsup: Bertoni, I should have recognized the spirit. Tai chi got me out of a wheelchair and has kept me walking for close to 20 years, and with painting has maintained (?) a certain level of sanity in my life. I love the single whip. It really is great. It also has given me the additional gift of leading me to membership in the Houston Chinese Painters Club. It has been a blast.:clap:

That's wonderful! Am glad Tai Chi has done so well for you!! :clap: I learned every movement by it's Chinese name!!! (Chi, Ben, Lu, Gi, On, Don Bien)etc.
That's the only way I recognize each move!!
I love it and don't know what I'd do without it!!:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

It looks wonderful. One never knows what you will choose for a subject, but they all come out well. Great job on the clothing.
