Got Clouds? 你今日睇咗雲未呀?

      Clouds in Sydney, Australia.

Starting off with CLOUDS. I love watching clouds. Clouds are sooooo beautiful. I wish I could have my graphite pencils with me and draw the clouds a bit. I like the size and shape of clouds.

I am originally from Hong Kong. There're lots of tall buildings in HK and my apartment is on the 2x floor. Sometimes I felt like the sky was close to me and it was always grey blue. When I studied art history and read the Western paintings, I loved how gorgeous the clouds were but felt like it's too fake because I had never seen any clouds like that. I appreciated the artists' good imagination.

I will never forget the day my parents sent me to the States for school. When I arrived at San Francisco, got out of the airport and looked up at the sky, I was stunned. I realized the sky and the clouds on the Western paintings were real. From that moment on, I fell in love with clouds and I called it American clouds. Clouds will be one of the things I miss the most about America.

This is the story behind my art piece "American Clouds."  Click the link below to check out this piece.

我喜歡看雲。雲真的很漂亮。如果現在我有畫筆在我手就好了。我喜歡雲的形狀和大小。

我在香港出生,香港有很多高樓大廈而我住在廿幾樓。有時候我覺得灰藍的天空跟我很近。我念藝術歷史時看到西洋畫時,我很喜歡畫中雲的華麗但嫌它太假啦因為我從來也未看過雲是這樣子的。我很欣賞畫家的想像力。

我永遠也不會忘記那天爸媽送我出國念書。當我到達三藩市,離開機場,我抬頭一望,我發呆了, 我發現西洋畫中的雲跟天空是真的。從那時開始,我就愛上了雲。我叫它作「美國雲」。我想念美國的雲。

我的作品「美國雲」就是這樣產生的。欲瀏覽此作品,按以下連結:
