Happy Thanksgiving

Tomorrow is the Thanksgiving. At this moment, I am so grateful to all of you who followed my blog, subscribed my painting email, supported my art, and gave me the opportunity to share. May all of you have an exceptionally happy time with your family and friends.

I am sorry I don’t have a painting for you to view today. I am sending this message to let you know that I will take a break and go away for a week. I will spend my Thanksgiving long weekend and several my personal off days to go to a retreat. In contrast to my complicated and fast paced daily routines, I will spend some time in complete silence, contemplating about life, future, and spirituality. There are many things we consider important in life: success, wealth, and good health. However, there is something more important than all those. I am sure you know what I am talking about. So, follow your heart. Follow your faith. Follow your path.

I will be back to my studio on December 3. All the paintings sold during the break time will be shipped after I return.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Qiang, I happened upon your blog while researching Fredricksberg workshops and I must say that I will be a regular visitor. Your comments and observations about creating art are wonderful (as are your paintings), but your gentle nature, frank honesty and loving kindness will inspire people to treat each other with respectful understanding...AND to create better art from the heart. Thanks for sharing you and your work with us. Loren
