Nine Goldfish in Free Style Chinese Painting by Henry Li

chinese painting 九如图 – Nine Goldfish is a good omen in Chinese, which suggests best fortune.

Materials List
Brush:Combination Brush of Goat and Wolf hairs,

http://www.blueheronarts.com/product_info.php?products_id=199

Paper: single Xuan.
Paints: Marie’s Chinese Painting colors,
Ink: ground ink paste from tung oil soot Inkstick.
Glue Water: Peach Sap Glue Powder

http://www.blueheronarts.com/index.php?cPath=7

* Translation of the corner seal: “Once you’ve gotten the fish you can forget the trap” which is a line from the Taolist master Chuang Tzu. He said:
“The fish trap exists because of the fish. Once you’ve gotten the fish you can forget the trap. The rabbit snare exists because of the rabbit. Once you’ve gotten the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words exist because of meaning. Once you’ve gotten the meaning, you can forget the words. Where can I find a man who has forgotten words so I can talk with him?”
My interpretation: getting the right painting brush is necessary to paint the fish, but it is more important to captured the happy spirit of the fish. If you’ve gotten what I am trying to say, forget about my poor English words. :-)
I carved this seal 25 years ago when I was a graduate student in Nanjing University.

* If you like it I can make a seal like it for you.
