The Art & Zen of Howard Meyer


It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to my website and the Soaring Dragon online studio. My purpose is to present more than just a simple artist’s website but an inspiring and enlightening experience. I invite you to explore, the techniques and aesthetics that evoke rhythms of vitality through ancient and cherished Asian arts. This artsite is complete with paintings of lyrical beauty, poetry, cultural articles, calligraphy and zen inspiration all following in the tradition of the Old Masters. Discover a few aphorisms sprinkled delicately through your art filled path, vying in wondrous splendor.


I recently exhibited (June 2016) at the Hammond Museum and Japanese Stroll Garden, North Salem, New York as part of the Oriental Brush Artists Guild - Brush With Nature Exhibit.  


Please bookmark and return here often, to view and enjoy the rich world of Chinese art and culture. I will be continually updating the site featuring recent art works inspired by nature, new and exciting compositions and even more than I’ve yet to think of.

If you have any questions, inquiries, or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact me at:

Thanks for visiting!


With my Red Feather brush placed on its porcelain rest, I leaned over my painting of Summer Roses and questioned my magnetic fascination and passionate love for one of the world’s oldest art forms; that of Chinese Brush Painting.

Simply, I love it! It’s an opportunity for me to be in one with nature  and express my visual voice and artistic personality.When I’m painting, all my systems; mind, body and spirit are working in unison. I’m immersed in that painting in a moment of perfect balance between pleasure, serenity and harmony.
