Happy birthday, Morris Cole Graves. His fine calligraphic brushwork and use of Japanese paper and sumi ink in this drawing of sixteen speckled birds in downward flight exemplify the Zen-like quality of his work, its meditative aspect, and his quasi-spiritual regard for nature.”Shore Birds,” 1950s, by Morris Cole Graves
