"On a Beijing Street 4"

Click Here to Bid

I want to thank all friends sending me emails and comments concerning my father's sickness and difficult situation of my mother and me. Your message really warm our hearts. We are very touched, and happy to know so many people are care and supportive. My father's condition is stable, and our maid came back two days ago. She is very helpful, so I have more time to paint and doing other things.

I continue on my Beijing cityscape series. My today's painting is another Hutong scene. I really like using palette knife now. My texture variation is still very limited, but I became more comfortable and freer. The subtly and drama of the painting are improving.

would you like us to send you some tubes of water miscible (mixable) oil paints, in your usual color palette? We will send an email, so that you can respond with an address, if you would like. We are keeping you and your family in our meditations, and hope your father is blessed with peace and comfort.

sorry to hear about your father's health. I wish you all the strength to recover well.

Nice painting.
I hope you will find the time to paint contemporary life in the city of Beijing as well while you are there.
