Story about this watercolor painting: It was a July in the year of 2003, I went to China for a visit. One day when I was with friends in a village in southern China about few miles next to Hong Kong. We were walking to a mountain to a Lichi farm. As we walked through the village, I looked to the house at roadside, I saw a little boy eating snack on a small wooden stool in front of his home. There were a few pieces of cloth on the window metal frame. There was a chicken relaxing walking in front of the house. A bicycle as the common transportation for a Chinese leaned to the front wall and parked next to the door-frame, and the Chinese New Year poet "the thought and words of safety of the family worth a thousand gold" still partially attached to the wall... It reminded me the sweet moments I had in his age in China. I paused for a few minutes to enjoy my memory. Years later, I finally painted this painting to remember the experience and connection.

A local television station produced a program during my exhibition in New Hampshire and this painting was a part of the program. Click here to watch the video and learn more about the "stories behind my paintings".
