Li Shu 隸書 Chinese calligraphy sample lesson #2 (why prefer older rubbings?)

The shape, structure, spirits of each characters as well as nuances are well kept; however, due to aging and Acts of God, steles deteriorated over the years and the calligraphy needs to be deciphered, understood, and analyzed for practice or appreciation.

Chinese Calligraphy Scroll (High Definition) – Peace Love Joy 和平愛喜 with Signature

chinese calligraphy Reissued in High Definition with additional part of adding recipient’s name and artist’s signature. Chinese Calligraphy Scroll “Peace Love Joy (和平愛喜)”

Writing “Peace Love Joy” in cursive and semi-cursive Chinese Calligraphy for Katia from Russia during a Chinese music concert of Master Betty Zhang in McKinney Performing Arts Center in Texas. The writing was done on a pre-mounted blank scroll with printed dragons in light gold. Though the pre-mounted blank scroll can sometimes be wrinkled due to handling, the wrinkles can be removed with an iron. Like music performers trying to play correct notes, writing on a pre-mounted scroll can be risky since the Chinese ink cannot be changed. So I humbly asked the audience to understand and be as quiet as possible to avoid any distraction; otherwise, I lose the money and the scroll if a single stroke or any artistic detail has disappointed me.
First two characters ( 和平 ) mean peace; third ( 愛 ) love; last ( 喜 ) joy.
Picture: friends with the Mayor of City of McKinney, Texas.
