Arrow Guan Weixing & Me!!

Hello fellow artists and art aficionados. Last Friday night I went to a reception honoring Guan Weixing (www.guanweixing.com). His paintings are truly amazing. Mr. Weixing was inspirational at his demos and thoughout his workshop at the Watercolor Art Society-Houston. He is not fluent in English but his mannerisms and handshake make him so friendly.

If you have a chance to view his paintings, you'll not regret it!!

Your friend,
Bridgett

P.S. I still don't know how to upload an image. I just get the url below. Sorry!!

Nick, you're a sweetheart....thanks for the compliment. What a nice gentleman...he's such a talent!!

Celeste, you could have stayed with me!!! Anytime you're in Houston, you can have a place to stay at my house. Guan Weixing is so giving and a true master.

Re: Guan Weixing & Me!!

Hi Bridgett - You are so sweet! Thank you for that.

I have about 20 friends that live in the area down there, so that wasn't the problem. It was just getting all the stuff that I have to have done by the end of July. ONce that's done, then I have 1 month before I dive back into 'no time' for a month.

Thanks again though!

Re: Guan Weixing & Me!!

Yes, I am a lucky girl to have met Guan Weixing, view his original artwork, buy a DVD of his demo and be in the same company at his Artist's Reception. He truly gives watercolor the respect and admiration it deserves because as we all know watercolor is not just a master's sketching tool.

Re: Guan Weixing & Me!!

Does anyone sell that CD here in the US? I've been trying to contact him for over 3 years and get nothing on e-mail. I want a copy of one of his cd's. Do you know how I could do that???

I've tried his website and I get nothing.

Re: Guan Weixing & Me!!

Yes, call Jackson Mayshark with Ambleside Gallery in North Carolina. You will have to probably GOOGLE the gallery name. OR, you can call him tomorrow at the WAS-H Gallery at 713-942-9966. But, he will be gone at 3:00PM Central Time tomorrow (Thursday) on his way back East. He can take your order by phone. The demo CDs are in Chinese but you will very easily be able to understand his technique.
