"The Song of Silence"


Painting still life when moving constantly. It sounds really oxymoron. Well that is my life now, and it will be like this for a while probably. I am learning to adapt this new life. Currently, I am staying with my friend Fongwei Liu in northern California. This is a painting I did in Liu’s studio. I spent two days on this 16” x 20” and plan to send this painting to a gallery.  It feels so good painting together with a good artist. Painting large is very different from painting small paintings. I feel happy I am able to do some gallery level paintings when I am traveling. So I gave a oxymoron title for my today’s painting as well.

Absolutely stunning! I was so looking forward to learning from you in Sacramento but I had to cancel a few days ago as I broke my shoulder and it is not healed enough to paint. I admire gour work and knowledge! I hope you will come back next year!

Wonderful painting! I love the colour harmony in this.

I wonder, did I meet you in Chipping Campden in the English Cotswolds several years back, you were leading a painting class?

Congratulations on this beauty. It is a stunner. The background color is so nice and the shadow colors in the white cloth are perfect.
