"My Mom"


Today is the Mother's day. I want share with you a pastel portrait I did of my Mom. She lives in Beijing, China. I am going to visit her in July. Mother's love is the greatest love. I cannot put into words to express it. At this moment, I want to declare to the world: "Mom, I love you!!!"

I did this portrait about nine years ago. It is on the wall of my studio. She watches me and gives me confident to paint all the paintings.

You are the sweetest man, Qiang. Your mother is beautiful and so is this portrait. I remember a lovely oil portrait of your father, too.
