Chinese art blowing in the wind. Genius, eh?
For the past 10 years or so the Chinese Garden has been
added to the Huntington Library gardens.
On the right side, it’s not leaves you see, but some more of what once was white rocks.

They have gone all out with artistic renderings of a wall
that is reminiscent of the great wall. The Huntington venue
added a 2nd  lunch place, also in this garden, a gazebo,
at least 2 bridges, a beautiful walkway with in-laid shells,
and small waterfall and lake.
Now the above art design has been added since Last Oct.
and  this year Sept. an art studio with a Chinese artist –
as I understand it, he will probably show the process
of his art for the visitors.

Am kind of concerned the direction this is going.
Are there not enough artists who do American art?
Is this not located in California?? Have the feeling
this is becoming a little too much, and one-sided.
(There is also an Australian and African garden,
but not with buildings, specific ornamental pieces
of these cultures, or art of these regions!)
May write them a letter… it may not make any difference,
but I want them to know visitors notice uneven trends …

This art studio is in Northern California. Wonder if these
big arrows surrounding it means this is a Native American artist,
or one well acquainted with Native American art.

In Jackson, the seat of Amador county where I live.
Love these historic inspired murals!

  1. The artist of the arrows could be someone who loves (or hates) archers and archery. 🙂 I got curious and went to read about the Chinese Garden. Impressive details being tossed about when completed– largest traditional Chinese garden in world, about $23 million raised to fund it, and 12 acres big. I wonder whose idea it was to create it.


  2. I think home-grown art should be nurtured and encouraged, Jesh, and once that is healthily growing and expanding, the art of other cultures should be fostered as well. Like most others, I like the mural too.


  3. Dearest Jesh; I also love the mural♬ Well, first 2 pictures have Japanese atmosphere (Asian, maybe p;-) I think I can guess a little what you are telling us. Thank you very much for your sweet comments and hosting.
    Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*


  4. Summer is winding down and our grandchildren are back in school, but my favorite season is coming up so I am happy! Artwork of any kind and any culture is interesting. The Chinese garden is so beautiful!


  5. That final mural is so engaging! Also liked the wisterias (?) in the header of your landing page.It included a little nest box with evidence that it is occupied by some sort of critter.


  6. I have to take a tour of town to look at the murals, I can’t think of too many off hand but I bet there are more if you really look. I love the big arrows in the grass.
