"Persimmons"

I had a group of artists coming to my house yesterday, and this is the painting I demoed to them. The two persimmons captured most of the attention because I did not have many colors in the rest of the painting. You don't need to have many colors to create the impact. As a matter of fact, isolating color in a small area produces the strongest color power.

You have seen too many of my demo paintings. You know what, I feel a little lost as well and don't know what I should do next. Hiking on my art trail, I need to sit down on a log nearby, wipe the sweat on my forehead, and drink a little water. The persimmons not only have vibrant color for a painter, but also very sweet to a ordinary person. So I am going to enjoy this sweetness now.

I never get tired of your demo paintings! Each one is a new gift for the eyes, a new lesson to be learned. You should try new things if your heart tells you so, but don't give up these hallmark demos.

I also love your demo paintings, they really are your trademark...I know when I see a Qiang Huang still life!

Take time for a breath...you are always welcome to come back to Lancaster!

I love your work, and I will never feel as though I've seen too many of them. I study and learn from them. But you paint what you feel like painting, because it's all beautiful.
