"Once Upon the Time"

Click here for purchase info

This painting project has been a hard one. I have applied a major effort to keep myself painting. I must admit that there is a tremendously powerful force around me, pushing me away from what I like to do, or what I believe is right.  The world around me is keeping on make fun of me, and has pressed me to a corner.  I am trying to fight, but feel lonely and exhausted. I don't know this world any more, but I feel I know myself better. Trying to be normal, to be fit in the main stream, that is my problem. "Walk your own way, ignore what other people say". Easy to say, but difficult to do.  I will do it anyway, stubbornly.

"Demo at Baton Rouge 2016 3" --- Sold

This is my last demo, which is high key with roses. High key gives more opportunity for using colors.  However, I personally still like low key better. Low key painting show more mystery with light.

"Demo at Baton Rouge 2016 1" --- Sold

I have just finished teaching a workshop at Baton Rouge LA. I want to thank Carolyn Breaux for organizing and want to thank all the Baton Rouge artists for coming and painting with me. This is my first demo. I have had a great time at Baton Rouge. Especially I want to thank Carolyn and her husband Jack for their warm hospitality. They kindly offered their home for me to stay and treat me delicious cajun food everyday. I have enjoyed so much these a few days.
