This is the scene I saw on a hill near the beach on my way back to San Francisco from Monterey. I hope all viewers could see the unique windy sunny weather and beautiful poppies in the field of California. Traveling along the beautiful beach road in Spring 2015, I found a small hill by the highway, and walking up it, noticed a pathway lined with poppies and traces of water on the road. Under the sunny and a bit windy weather, the wild bushes had bent in the wind. I wanted to capture the impression straight away and finished the painting a month or so later.

I used to be a chemical engineer, a businessman in the petroleum/gas industries and retired as a CEO of a construction company. But now I'm just a humble artist, a painter. I am very proud that I'm an artist as I'm enjoying my role in the world creating artworks, a new world of my own on the canvases.
