My home country, Korea, is a beautiful country. We have a clear four seasons in a year of which the landscape scenes differ one another and the moods and colors really vary upon the seasons. This is a studio painting from the photo I took myself in winter 2015. It was chilly but calm and peaceful to see the country yard at rest preparing the next season and the small peasants' houses under the remote mountains with their tops were smoothly curved. It shows a small peasants' road leading to their homes from working place. I really liked to smell the scent of my home country and wanted to move it onto the canvas.

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.
