Serenity ( 緑息 )

This abstract piece is inspired by one of the pictures I took while on a leisurely trip in Taiwan with a group of good friends and meeting other good friends there as well. As chance would have it, I got to visit Yangminshan National Park even though it was at the end of the day when we got there. We got a bit lost on a trail and were cold and hungry by the time we reached the Visitor's Centre, but all was forgotten when we got to witness beautiful dusk colours, like this forest scene, and a glorious sunset.

It is exactly this feeling that I want to capture with my colours and strokes on this green-themed piece - the feeling of beauty, the feeling of serenity, the feeling of unhurried leisure, the feeling of one at peace with nature, swaying with the soft winds and rays of gentle sunshine.

    Hi Yen, I was surfing on Fill-Your-Walls/Artspace and saw your works. My favourite piece is Zing. (I like the colours. Maybe you should travel to Europe more often and not SE Asia.)I draw a lot; no time to paint...you may view my works here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/19229072@N00/page2/ Like you, I have a day job and do art often (I try to do it weekly if I can). Just want to drop you a note of encouragement: don't give up!
