self portrait

AAIE Feburay meeting features 'artist self portrait'. There were 48 pieces displayed in the meeting. This piece is won the first prize.
 In order to prepare for this show, I ask Hanna Adler, my instructor of her workshop to take photo of me. We went to her backyard and she took pictures of all her students. Among the twenty some pictures we choose one most represent me. This painting is the end product from that photo.

In Memory of

My uncle passed away last month after a long battle with Myeloma cancer, skin cancer  and diabetic. I have been very close to him since I was small. He is a kind man, full of life and enthusiasm. His nick name is ‘Tiger’ for his ‘can do’ and direct attitude. He has given me many encouragement and support for my art project. I really miss him.

Two weeks after the funeral, my brother-in-law passed away with a heart attack. Our family has mourned for the loss of these two dear family members. I dedicate this painting in memory of them.
