The place where we live is very cold for quite awhile in winter but it often inspires me. Painting landscape is like telling a story, turning the painting into a visual poem.

I have been reading some art books and find it interesting to see different aspects of painting the same subjects. Too bad there are only 24 hours in a day!

Mountain Energy

We used to hike a lot, sometimes we would see people standing in front of waterfalls to do some kind of breathing exercise. I recalled the scene to make the mountain energy flow out of my brush again.
