The three friends of winter

A symbol of steadfastness, perseverance, and resilience in Chinese brush painting.

I’ve been learning Chinese brush painting since I got back from my first trip to China. There is a very emotional and spiritual story behind, long story short, I hiked up to the temple of Guanyin and after having a chat with her she gifted me with a long lost inspiration to grab my brush and create something. That journey also inspired me to take photography onto another level, so I thought it was time to combine my passion for both arts into one creative project to pay my gratitude to the Goddess who gave me this very precious gift. Here’s the first image of the series, “The three friends of winter” which is representing steadfastness, perseverance, and resilience in Chinese brush painting.
