I am so happy coming back. Now I am able to post on my blog myself. Thank you Eric (my brother in Canada) for helping me posting all my Beijing photos. When I was in Beijing I did several small paintings. I didn't post them because I didn't want to overburden Eric in spending too much time dealing with creating auction pages. To facilitate my daily painting in my parents' place was a big challenge. It took me several days to setup. I got only under a half of a desk area for all my painting activities. Two shoe boxes were used as the base for my setups. I used toilet paper to wipe my brushes since I simply didn't know where to buy paper towels. Lighting was a big issue. I wasn't able to find simple incandescent light bulbs more than 40W. Painting under this condition made my really appreciate the luxury I have in America, and I was so proud of myself being able to hack a quick-n-dirty way to keep my art going.

This is wonderful, sir. ( I think I would be out of the compliment words for you someday, since your arts are more than awesome. But I just want you to know that there's someone in the other corner of the world like me love your art. :D )

Thank you so much for finding a way to continue posting all the way from China. It was fascinating to hear your first hand accounts of how life is there now, and how it has changed since you left. Very happy to see the new paintings as well, Welcome back!

Welcome back! Glad you are home safe. Sounds like you worked very hard to keep painting in a difficult "studio". I admire your tenacity. I would have been tempted to give it up.
Your painting is gorgeous.
