I was just notified by the Academy of Art Spring Show 2013 that my painting "Docking" was selected for the winner of the MFA small work award. It was a great honor to be a part of this highly-acclaimed Spring Show, let alone be a winner of one of the awards. If you get a chance to visit San Francisco in the next week or 2, feel free to stop by the beautiful Palace of Fine Art and see this wonderful show presented by the best of the students at AAU.

Sometimes I feel I should be more thoughtful on my color choice. All those famous landscape and plein air painters are masters in color. So in this painting, I am really working on the colors to see if I can control the color usage more maturely. What do you think?

I've been busy like a squirrel recently. In addition to my Academy course and my corporate job, my painting "Noon Ride" is showing in the Salon International 2013. Also, I am building my website so I can present my art work in a more organized and professional way to you all. It's quite a challenge to juggle many things at the same time, but I enjoy it very much. After all, doing art is one of the most rewarding things in my life - in addition to raise my family and being with my friends. I will keep using this blog for posting my new paintings, and hope to sync the paintings to my website too. Please visit my website at: http://ranwuart.com and let me know how you think about it. Thank you for viewing my art.
Now the spring is coming, the field is full of lives and with the sun lit on everything, it's perfect for landscape painting. Love the weather here :) Nowadays I am really focusing on my composition and hope the composition of this painting captures the eyes of the viewers.
