Well, something new here, a new painting, done in acrylics, an unusual medium for me, along with a touch of chalky pastels and charcoal. This image is a record shot.
The stats, 36" square canvas, painted over the course of 8 hours in my garage. A fellow artist, Zhang Hong, called the figures "Saints", and the name has stuck as a working title. According to ZH, the saints are standing on the clouds, and have come to greet the viewer. I'm good with this interpretation.

Above, something new, a three way collaborative effort by Ju Yanan, Zhang Hong, and me. All painted in one spirited session using acrylics. The painting measures one meter square, a format I quite like. I find the results pleasing. I seem to notice something new each time I look at the painting. To be sure, this is a record shot.
