Three Friends of Winter in Traditional Chinese Painting (2/2) – Henry Li

chinese painting Go to http://stores.eBay.com/blueheronartscom to collect this and other original painting, or visit http://www.blueheronarts.com for the piston waterbrush pens, watercolor and rice paper supplies.

About The Three Friends in Winter (岁寒三友)
What are the “three friends”? They are bamboo, plum blossoms, and the pine tree. They represent three ideal aspects of the ideal person:
1. Bamboo – this friend represents flexibility. Bamboo grows tall, and can be strong. It’s so strong to use as a tool or as a weapon, yet it is also flexible. Healthy bamboo grows straight towards the sky and yet, when even the strongest wind blows, it will not break. In the face of great force, you can yield as necessary and then spring back from a position of strength, without breaking.
2. Plum Blossoms – this friend represents beauty among even harsh circumstances. Plum flowers bloom in the depth of winter. Amid great cold and dreariness that might kill other flowers, the plum blossom opens and shows its beauty. To be like this friend, you should find opportunity even in the most bleak situations, and let your beauty shine forth.
3. Pine Tree – this friend symbolizes survival through difficulty. The pine is green all year round, and does not wither even in the coldest days of winter. It can grow in places with little water and nutrients.
If you keep these friends in mind in both good times and bad, you may find yourself inspired to be flexible in ways you thought you couldn’t be — and perhaps you can blossom and survive in situations where others falter.

1. Wolf Hair Waterbrush – Branches of Plum with “flying white”

3. Synthetic and Natural Blend waterbrush – Caylex and Pollens, pine needles
