書法-和 harmonious/peace 2013
Chinese Ink and Brush works

This is what’s On Ni’s Table Today- a variety of harmonious/peace in both Chinese Oracle Bone Script and Chinese Bronze Inscription! I have been practicing my Chinese calligraphy 書法 skill everyday now. It really calm me down and prepare me for busy schedule ahead. I used to practice writing it in my school years back in Taiwan. At time, it was mainly homework for me,and I did not put much effort into practicing it. However,  I am always fond of  Chinese calligraphy書法  Chinese literature 中國文學 and ink and wash painting 水墨畫. It will take years and years of studying and researching to know better of these three areas. Now, I have fallen in love with Chinese calligraphy all over again,and really want to get better at writing it. It will take a lifetime of being persisted to practice daily in order to master this unique art of Chinese treasure. My goal is not becoming a master of this art,rather enjoy the process of practicing and putting my handwritten calligraphy into my arts which I have been doing. Please go and see my Asian Button Girl 01 Faith to see my illustration with my handwritten script. So, here is what’s On Ni’s Table Today.

According to Wikipedia-the free encyclopedia about Chinese calligraphy 書法, there is a general standardization of the various styles of calligraphy in this tradition. Chinese calligraphy and ink and wash painting are closely related, since they are accomplished using similar tools and techniques. Chinese painting and calligraphy distinguish themselves from other cultural arts because they emphasize motion and are charged with dynamic life. There are indeed many Chinese script styles, and each style has its own beauty and way to write it. I am fond of each style,and want to explore more whenever I can. After all, I am so happy to carry  this tradition of my culture and combining it with my art. Please click on any word or phrase that you would like to learn on this post as I have linked them to Wikipedia for you to learn more about Chinese calligraphy. Also, click HERE to see various styles of Chinese calligraphy from google search.

Over the past few years, I have been combining real buttons with my illustrations. I have been exploring this combination ever since I created my first button piece called Identical for Illustration Friday topic back in 2012. (I will share this button girl illustration with you next.) I then start to play around with real buttons,and have to say that I love it! I am fond of buttons,especially antique buttons. However, Antique buttons cost a fortune and hard to get. So, I stick with the buttons that I can purchase and always look out for some unique ones. Anyway, I thought that it would be fun to combine my love for real buttons and my own illustration. Then, I spent the past year and half exploring this technique and combination. I have so much to share,and I will start with the first greeting card design that I did with real button. It is called ” Cupcake Love”. (Second Image above) I am having fun,and will continue to introduce more button illustration with you all. This is another idea of mine to combine what I love into my creative process. It has been a fun journey for me using real buttons! I am going to share all my button illustrations and a series called “Ni Carnahan Button Girls” in the near future. Please follow me or stop by anytime to see my little cute button girls.
