It was a very surreal scene in the Trinity Church garden in New York city.

My son was connecting with his friends in U.S. after a long day of sight-seeing in Florence back in the summer of 2012. It was a hot day there so we closed the drapes to keep the room cool since the air conditioner wasn't quite working. I was surprised to find out we had created a very beautiful environment for painting.

In the middle of the day, a handsome surfer rested on the white sandy beach of Santa Monica. The sun was so strong I felt like he had already melted into the sand.

Reading Christmas Choir Program

I attended my friend's German choir performance during the Christmas time of 2013 and caught this scene of a senior man reading the choir program before the performance. It struck me deeply as in that celebrated joyful time, he came alone by himself, sat there alone, and tried to read the small fonts on the printed program.

Feathery Purple

Painting the feathery costume is challenging but fun. The result is satisfying.
