Imaginary Lilies, on the water or up into the air.
Becoming A Painter:
I was an accomplished textile artist, a weaver, for about 20 years. But, in the later years of that period, I often got frustrated for not being able to express myself, to release my inner creative energy spontaneously, and in the end, I even felt depressed.
One afternoon, in the spring of 2015, after ended myself as a textile artist for a couple of years, I felt an urge to paint. So I rushed to get some basic painting supplies, canvas, paint, brushes and an easel, and rushed back, started to paint.
I have been enjoyed painting so much since then, for its spontaneity and for its easy expressiveness!
In terms of the image of my painting, I like the simplicity which, not only presented on the colors I used, but also the scenery I created.
The series of “Lilies in Gold” and other paintings are inspired by the nature, but more is about the state of my mind, a mind of calmness. And, I want to share this inner calmness with the rest of the world.
The painting is signed and dated both front and back, and it's stretched on kiln dried wooden bars, ready to hang.
