When I was a teenager I was very into drawing and painting birds and animals. Everyday, after school I head to the local museum, using the displays of animals and birds as my model for my painting.
Pretty soon, the staffs got to know me by name and they started to buy my paintings. Almost all the paintings I done during that period been sold but I keep some for myself.
Shortly after I entered Art College, I discovered other arts and interests; eventually I stopped drawing and painting animals and birds all together.
One day, I packed away all those paintings and drawings and kept it in my parents’ basement and did not look at them for over thirty years.
A few years ago, I showed them to a close friend and he was surprised and amazed with the works from my youth
Early last year, I was toying with the idea of revisit my teenager passion; wondering how I would paint the subject after the long absent? I was curious of my long break how would my new works comparing to the old?
Almost as soon as I finished the first one I got my answer: my love for them has returned. I also gained the freedom and joys I did not had before.
Here is some of my latest.
