After she had demonstrated the different styles of Mu, she asked if we wanted to try it. I was the second person to raise my hand. She was so kind, telling us how to paint and it was so much different than I expected. I had tried to mine just as she'd done hers but it came out entirely different. I was quite pleased with it and also perplexed by it. I think the perplexity was half the fun. She let us keep the one that we'd done AND the matching example that she'd drawn! So I have mine and hers and want to frame them together.
There was something about the calligraphy that made me think to myself that perhaps I should have studied fine arts. I realized that I probably just need to paint more. I enjoy it so much, particularly when I try something new that turns out.
I'll try to post pictures of the calligraphy here when I get a chance. I'm so thrilled with them.
