Christmas wishes

Posted on December 24, 2010 at 12:38 0 Comments

Hi everyone

I just popped by to wish you all a wonderful Christmas and the very best New Year.  I hope you have good health, happiness and the very best of friendships.

For myself 2011 is already shaping up to be a very good year especially with an artists residency in the South Island which I will take up early in May.

Warmest regards

Lorna, Congratulations to you for winning a price which is not easy to get. That means you are realy way out by my husband's words. Realism is going on for so many years and so many wonderful merits hiden there. People will never give up realism as it first is coming from our life and then reflect to the life we are living in. Without realism people will lost. That is what I believe. Techniques are other things which can be abstract to creat realistic image. Well,  I'd better stop pretending to be a critics. Anyway, I mean, the fact showed that realism is still be appreciated and valued by the artists's striving effort, as you did.  Happy for you!  About competition, I read your words carefully and I agree with all your views.  By the way, today, a well-known peruvian painter's wife asked me to paint a garden with some houses, which was built in 1821. I was very brave and accepted  though I never paint things like that. I Just want to tell you that don't worry about me. I am confident and happy with my progress, sometimes even don't know where is danger . It made me painted some paintings far beyond  my knowledge of this art and  my limitation.   Lorna,  again, thank you for your time to write to me.My best wishes to you and your art.  Love, Li

Lorna, Thank you so much for you kindness and good will. I appreciate it indeed. For your information,  I won once already. Therefore, I sincerely hope that others have chance to shine. Or it will be sad for those who made same big effort like me standing in the shadow  for too long time. I am good in some way but still need a lot to improve and to learn. By the way here is the place for me to learn with fun and enjoy the friendship. That is most important for me. I told people that I only painted more than 30 pieces, they do not believe me. You'd better trust me, I feel I am not deserve to win too much, it will make me feel I am bigger than I really am.  Lorna  hope that you understand me. Love,  Li
