Painting is used to open the heart and embody a dream. Painters have the ability to show people the real world through a realistic painting and to give them a splendid dream through an art creation.
The beautiful scenery drawn by a painter is the inflection of the beautiful soul. Since my childhood, I have liked landscape painting. Soaring peaks, bold deserts, towering poplars, and nameless flowers in painting are the symbols of pure nature and songs of praise to life. Mountains in my paintings exhibit strength, trees show flourishing life, and rivers reveal an unremitting pursuit of nature.
Whether it is the West plateau of China or the European Alps, there is always a fascination with the landscape. Even during a tight journey, I enjoy the scenery as much as possible and I am always looking for that touching picture.
