We have cantaloupes growing in our yard, but they could not get big some how. I don’t know how well they taste, but they are certainly make good still-life subjects. This painting will be shown at Galerie Kornye West at Fort Worth, TX. The URL is: http://www.kornyewest.com/.

You might wonder what the white object is at the front. It is a bird feed, which is used to hold a small amount of food for birds in a cage. I got it from my mother-in-law. It works so well for still life compositions.

Yesterday I gave my first painting demonstration and this is my demo piece. This event was organized by a local artists group: Plein Air Austin. The demo was performed at the Windberg Art Center in Georgetown Texas. I want to thank both PAA and the Windberg Art Center to make this activity possible.

Today I have reached the milestone: 100 posts on my blog. Since I started this blog in January, I have received enormous amount of help and support. At this moment, I want to express my sincere appreciation to my collectors for your patronage. I want to thank my artist friends who have commented on my paintings. I didn’t get a chance to response to you all, but your messages were well received. I feel really great to have this opportunity on-line to share my art with you, and sincerely hope that my effort can bring you happiness.

We planted rose bushes in the spring, but didn’t realize they were too close to the AC compressor. The Texas summer comes. The high temperature plus more heat from the AC are all dumped on the plant. But to my surprise, they grew well and bloomed. The flowers are so beautiful. I must paint them.
