Thank you for viewing my first painting in 2011. The year of 2010 passed like a flash. I was in a hurry all the time. Now, it is the time to plan the new year. Be honest with you. I don't have a New Year's resolution. If I do, I really want to slowing down. I would like to have my 2011 looks more like this painting: very much down to earth. I want to spend more time learning. I want to simplify my life as much as possible. I hope I can manage more efficiently. It is my first time to paint turnips. It offers me opportunities to presenting nice purple colors. They are not showing off as apples and oranges. I feel the taste of life sometimes is more like the taste of a turnip.
