Harvest Season
When I stand back and look at this painting, I can't help but think philosophically, that when you work hard and keep your nose to the grindstone, you will reap a bountiful harvest.

This is my largest painting to's very exciting!!!  In person it's so realistic, I have to admit, he's kind of scary and I think very hungry...FYI, I'll be demonstrating my painting skills again March 27th at Deng's Studio (670 South King Street, Seattle)...please come out to watch me along with other artists in action, from 2 pm - 5 pm

Long a symbol of abundance in China, these fish are often painted and offered at the start of the Lunar New Year to offer "Good Luck" to the recipient 
Wing Luke Museum
I'm delighted to announce that some of my paintings are now on display at the Wing Luke Museum in Seattle's International District during the month of March.  It's very exciting to get my art out in front of the public!  I hope you all have a chance to stop by and check it out.

Fairy in the Moon
In ancient Chinese culture it was believed that a fairy lived in the moon.  Her presence was worshiped annually during August of the Lunar New Year.  Today, we still celebrate the tradition, gazing up at the beauty of the glowing full moon, sending prayers her way, then celebrating with "Moon Cake"'s quite tasty!  
I stumbled upon the inspiration for this image at an outdoor cafe during one of those long, lazy days of summer.  The contrast of vibrant colors and calmness caught my eye immediately, so much so, that I had to cancel my afternoon plans and instead spend the time capturing the essence of this painting.

Spring is near!
Seeing the sun poke through the clouds and buds showing on the trees, I was reminded that spring is just around the corner and scenes like these will be plentiful...looks like I'd better start carrying my brushes with me!

Here is another of my favorite paintings.  I began this work after a day of quietly sitting and watching.  I love the sense of freedom I felt as I saw the the Cranes soaring overhead.  Their flight seemed so effortless, and while I know I can never fully capture their graceful motion, I hope a bit of their spirit comes through in the painting.
