End of January
It was quite a night on Friday. I was busy finishing up my major painting for Art-A-Day. It reminds me so much of my student days in Kansas, staying up playing with paints. The only difference was that my little Katherine was excited waiting by the table. Her job was to squeeze paint tubes for me. I am very lucky. I was pleased by the result. It has taken awhile for me to get into the flow. I am happy that after years of trying different themes and styles, I finally found a theme and know what I want to convey in my paintings. “Traveling Shoe and Rolling Hills” (size: 64" x 40") is a story about travel to new lands, fitting in, learning how to succeed and when to bow out in the human jungle. It is about my great grandmom, whose lotus feet was casted in my memory. This is the beginning of a series of work. I am currently working on the second painting, more about East and West.
