"Red Table Cloth" --- Sold

Click Here to Bid

After my previous post, I have received so many kind emails and comments about the magazine article on my art. I feel like a marathon runner passing a milestone. I am really touched by your cheers. I took the water bottle you handed to me, quenched my thirst, energized my body, and kept on going. I know well I have a long way to go, but I believe I can make it, because you are with me no matter where. Thank you very very much.

I want to share this small painting with you today. I am exploring new possibilities of using light. I like the reflections from the red table cloth to the small white pot. I can't believe I can put cadmium red light directly on a white object. I like the drama.

Wow, you are getting bold, Qiang! Congratulations on another powerful painting. The cad red does add drama, and might I add that your amazing background (brushstrokes, value, hue) and the "red" stripe atop the mantle support the drama fantastically.

QIANG! the reflected warm red glow is great! pulls the viewer right in and makes me want to stay there. God is with you.
You don't need to be so humble.
Also the translucent quality in the cantalope yesterday was fantastic!
