LOVE TO SONG

Today is the Valentine's Day, and the Chinese New Year as well. I want to devote my today's post to my beloved wife. Song and I met in high school. We married in Alabama. For 17 years, she has been on my side from the Deep South to New England, from California to Texas. We have gone through together the hardship of the first generation of immigrants. We have enjoyed every progress in our small family. When I feel blue, she cheers me up. When I lost, she is my best guide. When I feel tired, she is my Yoga teacher and acupuncturist. Without her help and support, I can't imagine my art can be successful. Many of you have met her in my workshops and shows. Recently she starts to organize workshops. English language and computer operation are big challenges for her, but she works very hard and progressed wonderfully. I feel I am very fortunate and grateful for being with her. The art I share with you today is a pastel portrait of my dear wife I did many years ago, and I want to say: Song, I love you forever!

Mr. Huang
That is an exceptional comment to post. I would suggest you both are lucky, you to have Song but also for Song to have you. You express your feelings well in your words as well as your art.
I am artist also and strive to paint with the simplicity and yet convey the feeling you express so well I have 2 of your small paintings in my studio which I see whenever I paint. Please do not stop.
As an aside my first portrait was of my wife Paula, we have been married 42 years.
My mentor is Ann Warner she took your workshop several months ago.

Happy Valentine's Day to both of you, Qiang and Song.
To know her is to love her; her firm and gentle way does guide you to the best thing, I've seen that.
My love to both of you and Happy Chinese New Year!
