"Blue Umbrella" --- Sold




Two days have been spent on this painting. 90% of the time, I just stared at the board thinking. "Painting by not painting" was the goal for this painting project. I tried to paint as less as I can but wanted to show as much as possible. I painted rather abstractly, but still representational. The process was painstakingly slow, but it looks spontaneous and fast. Do all of these sound oxymoron to you? Maybe I should call this approach: the oxymoron style.

I love it. There's something about a rainy day painting and umbrellas that say "comfort" to me.

This is a great painting. I love your still life paintings with more detail, but this is just so full of your imagination. We get to fill in what we imagine. Beautiful!

Wonerful! I don't know what's painted more beautifully the people and umbrellas, or the reflections.
