This issue features news of the upcoming (this weekend!) art show by Toinette Lippe. Some examples of her work are shown. I think you'll find them appealing with light, life, and lightness. Also, Toinette speaks nonduality, so if you live in New York City, stop and see her and buy something. The prices are very reasonable. Toinette is showing and selling paintings and greeting cards.    


Hey New York City! Listen up...

  The spontaneous style of East Asian brush painting seeks to express the essence of something with a few swift and sure strokes. Ancient Chinese masters described it as allowing “the brush to dance and the ink to sing” and contemporary Sumi-e artist Motoi Oi says: “The aim is not the reproduction of the subject matter but the elimination of the inessential” or, to put it another way, the painter seeks to distill nature rather than record it. My hope is that the image will be intense and potent, that it will leap off the paper and into the viewer’s heart. The painting comes alive in proportion to how present I am and how lightly I hold the brush. As Kaz Tanahashi taught me, two principles must be kept in mind: “Undivided attention equals unswerving strokes” and “Do not hold a brush unless you are smiling.”    

        I bow to all my teachers—Koho Yamamoto, Zhang Zhan, Mildred Gallo, Charles Chu, Jong Wang Lee, Wanxin Zhang, Kaz Tanahashi, and Sungsook Setton—each of whom has guided me in different but essential ways along the path.


        I hope that one day my brush will express the luminous purity of Mary Oliver’s poems, the vitality of Paul Reps’ Zen telegrams (minimalist paintings of a “cucumber unaccountably cucumbering,” “consciousness delighting as crane,” and other small miracles), the exuberant love of life in Pablo Neruda’s odes, and the transcendence of Ralph Vaughan Williams’ orchestral piece, “The Lark Ascending.” I yearn to experience wonder, joy, and delight as I paint and to express these qualities in such a way that others may experience them too.
