Human's being face reflects the mixture of their own unique character and identity with their life. Isn't it the reason every day we look at a mirror to see and check our face? At the same time, we paint in our minds the most ideal portraits of ourselves. I guess that is a human nature. I believe, therefore, a great portrait must contain and express the model's unique identity and their life journey as well as the likeness. I think this is the main difference and difficulty of portrait painting compared to other painting genre. .
I thanks for the chance to awake my artistic passion and instinct. Thus, my first period paintings were mostly landscape paintings. I found that each men's face reflects his or her connotative character. Especially, elderly people's faces silently expose their long life journey they have been through. So, I was anxious to paint their portraits to express their comprehensive and unique identity on my canvas.
