All ready to go.....rice paper, brushes, ink and water. Today at Ruth's Table, we had the opportunity to learn Chinese Brush painting.  It is in conjunction with an exhibit at Bethany House and Ruth's Table of art from the Joseph's Fine Art School.  Joseph Yan and his wife Janny Huang taught today with Earl Speas, their long time student.
