Daily Sunset Paintings of Baltimore

Painting is the art of seeing. It helps me look at the outside world and then express what I have seen through an interior process. I paint sunsets and the sky of Baltimore every day. It about seeing nature; at the same time, it shows the longing for home and the bittersweetness of living in a foreign land. Choosing to be an artist is to choose a lifestyle of communicating with my internal world, which means being honest with myself. Then I am in front of my paintings, and I am in my paintings.

 

Honesty is an essential ingredient to creating art. That means I need to face my limitations and examine the things I want to hide directly. I am thinking nothing while I paint. I start to observe myself deeply through an intuitive mind space which then shows up in my paintings. Missing home is an emotion that I cannot resist, which is expressed in my work. Painting Baltimore is an effort to make this place as home through my loving eyes. The things that I paint are the things I love deeply.
