"Red Lanterns"

I want to express my sincere thanks to all the friends writing and praying for me. I am really touched and encouraged to continue on. In life we have seen so many "successful" people. They became well known because one or two gimmicks they have and the right timing. However their shine was short lived. Like shooting stars, Bright and soon disappeared.  I want to seriously work on my art, and it is a long and difficult journey. So please bear with me, if you see I do a boring painting, or a crazy painting. That is all parts of my growing up. Our conditions are not ideal. Our time and energy are limited. We move in baby steps. However, we are progressing.

This painting took me more than ten days to complete, due to my lousy time management. I started to deal with some new objects to make my painting more interesting. This painting will be sent to a gallery. I am so behind on providing works for my collectors.

This painting will make someone very happy. All of the elements work beautifully together. Love the red, paper lanterns against the brass lantern.

Just beautiful, Qiang. Well worth waiting 10 days for. I can easily see why it took more time. Your treatment of metal is marvelous. I love the ribbon and shadow beneath it! and the red lanterns, your treatment of the background and foreground, your whole composition works perfectly. Great candlestick! beautifully painted, and I love that touch of red/orange to the left, behind the brass lantern! Just the right touch! A perfectly done painting. Wow! Congratulations!!
