"Bronze and Copper" --- Traded

After my Sacramento workshop, I went to the Bay Area and visited my friend Fongwei Liu. He is a wonderful figurative and portrait painter, and teaches the graduate level painting classes at Academy of Art University in San Francisco. If you are not familiar with his work, I highly recommend you check Fongwei's art blog. You will be amazed what this young artist can do. He has won an award last year at the 12th Annual International Portrait Competition hosted by the Portrait Society of American. In the near future, I will invite Fongwei coming to Austin and teaching a workshop. I will announce that when the workshop is confirmed.

I did this painting in Fongwei's studio. I learned quite a bit from him

Another great painting. Hope to see you at the Texas Stampede in Fredericksburg in March.

Lovely. I really like the contrasting colors so close together.
