Every year around January I always remember the 23rd was the date our family arrived in Canada. However, this year with the Chinese New Year on the 25th I just completely forgot!
Last year I painted a painting for a lotus to commemorative our 35th anniversary, this year for some unknown reason; I was painting another lotus painting without even thinking about that date. This painting has the two different techniques from the two cultures, the east and the west which I know of. Watercolour on Arches 140lb rough watercolour paper, 2009.
