This is one of those paintings that was pure delight to create.
Got a phone call this week that my paintings are going to be used in an Acura commercial. The story-line is of a man who is trying to find his artist-girlfriend in San Francisco, and in one scene she's painting my pictures. It will be shown in China. Now when I go downstairs to paint it feels mythological, something foreigners would romanticize about. I was bound to get back to China, one way or another.
