they are beautiful works.

there are also tattoos, ideograms, beautiful but incredible, in the second also the background strikes, in the blue as palaces appear.
the stories in the stories you paint. details,
strong works.

Yes, there is a temple in the background. It was painted under the coat of blue , then the blue was sanded before getting varnished. My son’s dad was half chinese . So these are references to what we knew until my son went to China and Korea where he worked. Thanks, Joe.

These could sell in a gallery in Los Angeles for at least $15K, minimum. What size are they? They are amazing.

I have another one, same subject , that had been rolled up for 20 years. It is 6’x9’.
When my son learned that his dad was dying, he would sit and look just like that for the longest time. He was sad and so angry at the same time because they had run out of time.
I would paint the subject over and over. I think that unconsciously I was trying to put his sadness on the wall. 😟
