The end of a hot day

This is a small painting of the white adobe building of Mission San Antonio de Padua during the CAC paint-out event last summer - I was mesmerized by the tranquil scene when I was strolling to the back of the Mission building to find something different. And this is the Aha moment. In this painting I was still focusing on the composition and color harmony, and tried to capture the peaceful moment of the hot summer day.

Spring Show 2013, Winner of the Small Work Award

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.
