"Place to Hide" --- Sold

Click Here to Bid

After I announced my career transition yesterday, I have experienced something I have never ever imagined before. I saw huge waves of congratulation messages coming from all directions. I was lifted up by all of you and submerged into the absolute happiness. My fairly new Mac Book Air computer has almost shattered into pieces due to too many words bombarding on its fragile LCD, and my Wi-Fi has turned red hot due to the too high current of bids coming in. I almost burst into tears, so touched beyond any expression. I have spent almost whole day yesterday and this morning reading your kind phases. I am deeply moved. I sorry, I feel so inadequate in expressing my feeling at this moment. I only can see: THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. Your cheers has inspired me to start immediately. Your encouragement has empowered me to go forward. I want to shout: I LOVE YOU, MY ART FRIENDS!!!

The painting for today was done a couple of days ago. I am really humbled in front of you. I feel blushed and shy like the apple in it, always try to find a place to hide. It is very clear to me. I am still a beginner in the art world. On my long journey, I am so happy that you are with me always. Hugs.

Dear Qiang,

I am so happy that you are allowing yourself to be uplifted by us - your faithful admirers. I hope you realize that you have allowed us to pay you back somewhat for so honestly sharing your struggles in such a self-disclosing way. You are an uplifter as well as a wonderful artist. Congratulations on taking this big step. I recently read....."Make a decision and then make it right." I have no doubt that this is the right decision for you.

This painting is lovely -- warm, harmonious and masterfully painted!

Congratulations on making this monumental decision.I have wondered for some time how long it would take you to see the path that the Lord has laid out for you. Continue to share your talent and gifts with others in your teaching and painting. Blessings in this great endeavor

All the very best in your new career, Qiang. I know how excited you must feel as I too begin life as an artist... although with not quite so much talent.

Joyce Washor said...

I forget who said it and exactly how but the essence was that we can measure our success by what we are willing to sacrifice. And this is a biggie! I'm sure you won't regret it. Your work is inspiring and your humility enviable!!

Leslie Bishop said...

What a blessing you are to so many! You will do very well, I'm sure. Your talent, skill, and graciousness show in all your work. I feel so fortunate to have one of your pieces. Best of success to you, Qiang. It will be an adventure and inspiration to watch your journey. Thank you very, very much for sharing it with us all.
