Rainy Day in Vancouver
Rainy Day in Vancouver

Another rainy street scenery of Vancouver. I especially like the shape of those buildings.  Those interesting shapes always made your eyes go back to them.

One thing in CA I missed so much is in-n-out burger. I went back to southern California during my vacation and took a photo of this drive-thru. Came back to Seattle and painted this!

Winter Grazing
Winter Grazing

 Winter snow in the Seattle area is not unseen of, but it definitely is a special occasion. I love to be able to see snow during winter time, as it enhance the mood of the holiday season. During a snowing day, I can't help but take my camera with me and trying to capture the winter wonderland! This painting is done by using a photo reference I took at the nearby barn. Even during a snowy day, the horses still come out and graze in the morning.

Last time I went to NY was about 13 years ago. Since then, I always wanted to go back and fix the memory. It was a wonderful city to paint, but I didn't appreciate it last time when I was there!

One of the place I went often when I still lives in Southern California. This place brought back much memories.

Wet Day in Vancouver

Living in Seattle, Vancouver is one place that I visit often.  Beautiful city with lots of great foods.  Weather is very similar, which makes it another place I love to paint.

The photo was taken way back during 2007. My first job was here, doing this painting really took me back to the good old times. 

Morning Fog

I encountered this scenery on my way to work the other day. The heavy morning fog transform this street where I pass every morning. I love atmospheric scenery like this, and watercolor is probably the best medium when it comes to painting atmosphere.

I never really get tire of painting a wet street scene. When I do, I like using a tall and slim dimension like this to create the sense of scale and depth.

This one was painted on location during one of my sabbatical week. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable experience. Instead of bringing my own water for this painting, I used the water from the river which I painted from. Make this one much more fun and personal!

San Diego seaside

A simple painting I did referencing from a photo my friend took. Ironically, painting water surface with watercolor is rather difficult. But when I was able to pull it off, it's very rewarding.

This painting was done referencing one of the snapchat post from my friend Sean McCabe. I've been inspired and motivated by his message and content for quite sometime. When I saw this image he took with his entrepreneur friends, I really had the urge to capture how they always moving forward reaching their goal!

Wet Afternoon in Redmond
Wet Afternoon in Redmond

I drive by this place every morning. And I didn’t realize this everyday scenery is such a great scene to paint. It made me look twice at the places around me. 
You don’t have to travel far to find good subjects. They can be all around you!

Afternoon in Taichung City

Newly developed area in Taichung City, Taiwan.  Where my in-laws lives.  Every time we are there visiting them, they always show us great hospitality and make our stay in this great city wonderful!

Misty morning in Redmond is simply beautiful.  I drove pass the barn after drop my kids off the school.  Horses enjoying the morning as they all grazing around.

Driving from Washington to BC.  You see a lot of great Northwest sceneries along the way.  This happens to be one of it.

It was a nice tranquil sunset down at the Kirkland lakeside.  There we are catching the tail of the summer here in Washington.

Beautiful campus of UW.  Trying to capture the warm afternoon light.

My college years were spend in an art school.  It's a great school but it's very small compare to a Sate University.  Therefore I never really get to taste what it's like to study in a huge beautiful campus.  But at least I am free to visit and enjoy the place.

Beach scene is always a popular theme. This one was painted from a photo I took in San Diego. I particularly enjoy painting the palm trees and creating depth.
