christmas painting 2008

Every Christmas I would complete a painting to dedicate to a person or an event which were important to me. This year’s painting of a Chinese Garden was for my grandfather whom I knew very little. He was a well respected artist and scholar back in China, the first one from his village to graduated from a major university but he passed away before I was born. Due to the war none of his paintings and writings survived however I inhered his artistic genes because none of my siblings or cousins are artistic.  At a trip to China a few years ago while in this garden I felt a strong connection to him
