“Plein Air at Shangli 02"

Click Here for Purchase Info

This plein air painting was interrupted a few times by the rain. I don't know if it is considered finished or not, but I was really in a rush using the time when the rain was subsided into a drizzle. The scene was a complicated structure, but I was under the pressure, and it is impossible to take care of all the issues I consider necessary to be a painting I like. reality is reality.

I feel the process of this painting just like my life. We have to compromise to all the issues we wish we can take care of, but life is telling us that is the best we can have. Struggling in life is not always a bad thing. Just like this painting, I kind of like it.

"Plein Air at Shangli 01" --- Sold

I was completely disappeared from the cyber world for a month. I just came back from China last night. Our painting trip there was very exciting. 13 of us traveled and created art together. We have many stories to tell, and many photos to share. Unfortunately, I was not able to access to my social media during the time I was there. I was happy being there in China, and I am happy coming back as well, because I can show you images.

Shangli is a old small town in Sichuan Province. There are many remarkable old structures. The weather was 100% raining when we were there. I painted two paintings there, all in the rain.
