I found a tiny kaleidoscope my parents bought for me. It was in one of the boxes I set aside for later cleaning. The images were so clean and beautiful. I forgot the time passing by and just keep looking at the dream like colors.

I have just read Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton. It was quite entertaining. So I added a little dinosaur to my painting. I do not remember where this little guy came from, but just sitting on my desk for a while…like 20 years….my goodness…I am surrounded by so many little things and love them.

I found this red bottle at one of the antique store in downtown Charleston a few years ago. Love at the first sight! It does not matter whatever it is, a person or an object, our inner core touched each other’s. Then the small green showed up. It is wonderful!

It is raining all day today. Weather forecast says Tomorrow will be very cold. It may turn into snow…so they say. I will make a good cup of tea and read my new book then.

Long time ago, I read “Lost Horizon” by James Hilton. Time to time the image of this incredible sanctuary comes back to my mind. This is my ultimate dream. This might be the reason I kept painting flowers.

I am learning the technique for the wood engraving. At this point, I am in the mist. I do not know where I am nor where I am going. But at least I am having a fun. It will be great if I can take some workshops for printing itself.

It is always good to start a new year. Even the air feels different..more crisper and fresher. I hope that this year will be full of adventure and fun…and a lot of art works.

I hardly painted for last a few month. I was quite busy at school and did not feel like painting. Now I am full of energy and ready to tackle with what I was neglected to do.

I prepared 11 panels first and then started to think about what to paint. Then chickens came. It was very fun to paint those small images of chickens. I also am painting one landscape and one flower image. I love painting…. I am having fun.
This year is ending soon. It was a busy one. Now I am anticipating what is waiting for me next year. I can not control my future but at least I like to do what I am hoping to accomplish…big ones and small ones.

I am dreaming myself being in a cabin in the middle of the snow-covered wildness. All roads are closed and nobody can come near my cabin. Enough food, tea, books and paints will be my only friends. No TV nor Wi-fi, just books and paints….and my cats. How wonderful it will be….. At least I am going to make a cup of tea now.
