This is a pretty random collection. It includes paintings based on photos I took in China, 2005-2007.

I met a woman in Center City Philadelphia on the 4th of July and asked her to pose for a photo. She morphed into a compendium of every dedicated activist I know.

I followed these monks one very early morning in Xi’an. They seemed content, but the painting revealed a certain tension, not to say drama. This is the earliest painting in this collection.

I took the photo for this painting coming down Yellow Mountain in heavy fog. It made for a very traditional painting.
