As I continue to work on my Chinese handwriting, hand  手 is a character I will enjoy practicing.

“The fluid effect of ink and brush is a prominent feature of Chinese art and a direct result of calligraphy’s importance in society. The brushstroke has tremendous expressive potential and lends a feeling of movement and spontaneity to the object.” – Peabody Essex Museum, Salem, Massachusetts.  The PEM has a large Asian art collection.
