The "Six Persimmons" is a painting from the 13th century and Wikipedia's lovely description of its meaning helped me decide on this name for my studio:
"In philosophy, the painting of persimmons by Mu Qi (13th Century Monk) exemplifies the progression from youth to age as a symbol of the progression from bitterness to sweetness. The persimmon when young is bitter and inedible, but as it ages it becomes sweet and beneficial to humankind. Thus, as we age, we overcome rigidity and prejudice and attain compassion and sweetness. Mu Qi's painting of Six Persimmons is considered a masterpiece."

COVID-19 UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2021: After much thought, and being aware of the evolving Covid-19 situation, I have decided to require in-person students to be fully immunized. Being a Registered Nurse working with a vulnerable population (palliative and their families) and also having a frail, elderly mom, it is the best way for me to move forward and offer in-person classes. I am sorry if this is difficult for some, and please know that I am not making this decision lightly. Hopefully, by 2022, this pandemic will be a memory! And to support those who chose not to immunize, I am offering live Zoom classes (and for those who just want to stay home and practice in their PJ's!!!)
