Cannot believe it’s already mid October! Autumn is right on the corner. Pumpkins, Halloween, holiday season, birthdays of two of my beloved family members… Tons of stuff ahead. And of course, drawing, painting, doodles, picture books… Hope this is a fruitful season to everyone!

I decide to use the name given by Linda, “Soaring”, which comes with an air balloon soaring in the unlimited sky, it’s so like a fairy tale!
Well this piece is the 2nd part of a 3 set commissioned work. Looking forward to the 3rd one! Have been working on it for long time. Sometimes it’s struggling sometimes it comes so easy. No matter how much time it takes to complete one piece, one thing is for sure, quality comes with love. So do enjoy the process and the journey to the “result”.
I don’t know if you have ever heard about the legend of woodpecker, a story about a selfish tiny old woman who didn’t want to give her food to save a hungry guest. While in Chinese culture, woodpecker is more of the positive symbolic meaning, it’s a diligent hard worker, a kind helper in the forest, smart and with creative vision, full of knowledge and with a warm heart. Very interesting when I found out the very different symbolic meaning in different cultures!
