The first bowl moistens my lips and throat; 一碗喉吻潤， The second bowl breaks my loneliness; 二碗破孤悶， The third bowl searches my barren entrails but to find 三碗搜枯腸， Therein some five thousand scrolls; 惟有文字五千卷， The fourth bowl raises a slight perspiration 四碗發輕汗， And all life’s inequities pass out through my pores; 平生不平事盡向毛孔散， The fifth bowl purifies my flesh and bones; 五碗肌骨清， The sixth bowl calls me to the immortals. 六碗通仙靈， The seventh bowl could not be drunk, 七碗吃不得也， only the breath of the cool wind raises in my sleeves. 唯覺兩腋習習清風生。 Where is Penglai Island, Lu Tong wishes to ride on this sweet breeze and go back. 蓬萊山﹐在何處，玉川子乘此清風欲歸去。~ Lú Tóng 盧仝
~Lu Tong 卢仝, 790–835
Artemis: :-/ Lu Tong was a Tang Dynasty poet. Most of his poetry was about tea and the tea ceremony. Lu loved his tea. LOL
From Wiki: ”Hiroshi Senju (千住博 Senju Hiroshi, born 1958) is a Japanese painter known for his large scale waterfall paintings. These waterfall paintings often focus at the base of the waterfall where the falls crash into the pool below, usually cropping out the top of the falls. As a painter he primarily uses traditional Japanese painting techniques; employing pigments derived from natural materials and applying them to a specially designed mulberry paper. In contrast to the norm of displaying such works in a dimly lit, tatami mated room, Hiroshi prefers his paintings to be viewed under natural light.”

1956, Picasso Paints in real-time, intro clip (via:youtube | AlistarMacdonald)
Using a specially designed transparent ‘canvas’ to provide an unobstructed view, Picasso creates as the camera rolls. Begining with simple works that take shape after only a single brush stroke, Picasso progresses to more complex paintings adding and removing elements until at last the work is complete.
Artemis: This is from the film Le mystère Picasso, 1956, Directed by Henri-Georges Clouzot. HERE
