"Block One in the Rain" --- Sold

This is my first "Artists' Choice" award from a major plein air painting competition. I am so happy I have reached this milestone. It is a great honor to be recognized by my fellow artists. I began painting about 20 years ago. At that time, I consider art just as an hobby. I have received so many peoples' support. On my art journey, I did run into difficulties, but so many peoples warmed my heart with encouragement. Thank you, my fellow artists, from the bottom of my heart.

"Concho Jewels" --- Sold

I am very happy to receive the "West Texas Precious Water Award" on the recent En Plein Air Texas competition. Water is such an important resource, but most of us take for granted. So many water ways in the world are severely polluted. We all should put our effort into protect  this precious resource we rely on to survive.

"Demo at Yangshuo 2019 4" --- Sold

There is old village in Yangshuo. We went there as a one-day excursion. I did this one as a demo. I have been to this village in 2013. It has changed significantly. Many old houses have been remodeled into hotels. The conditions were not bad. I may stay at this village next time.

I have been back for a few days. The jet-lag is a terrible thing. I hope I will recover soon. Soon I will start to teach workshops again. Before the December holidays, I will teach at Huntsville Museum of Art, Quinlan Visual Arts Center at Gainesville GA, and the Scottsdale Artists' School. I believe there are still openings. Please check those places for information and signing up.

"Demo in Yangshuo 2019 3"

I have just come back from China last night. Since Internet difficulties, I have not able to post for 40 days. You might have thought I have fell into a crack of the world, well to me, it was felt that I have been to another planet. Thank God I am back.

I want to share one painting I did on my Yangshuo workshop. It was so beautiful there and we have spent 5 spectacular days. Soon I will post a video on Youtube to show what kind of place we have been.

This painting is available, so let me know.
