Just Before Dark

Room 2203|Oil on canvas 33x24cm 2016

This beautiful sea view is of Qixingtan Beach in Hualien. You can feel the primitive energy from the land of eastern Taiwan whilst looking into the imposing landscape of the East Rift Valley. A view of heavy blackish greens and the sound of the waves of the Pacific Ocean. I can feel the tears of this land, then I express it by painting this scenery, silently, on the canvas.
