A day in the life of a grasshopper

Since I was a young boy, I love observe the insects like bee, butterflies, dragonflies and grasshoppers. I admire their freedom to move around and without being notice.

My latest painting, “a day in the life of a grasshopper” was inspired by the grasshopper in my mother’s Chinese vegetable garden. One year, she planted some bottle squashes and among the lush greenery I could see the tiny grasshoppers: although they only taking a small space of the painting but it required your attention to look a little longer.
