An edited re-post from December 2008. This painting of my wife dates back to almost 20 years ago - before we met. It depicts a scene in one of the small ancient water villages around Shanghai, some of which unfortunately have become tourist traps in more recent years. I still remember the strange feeling when I first saw this one, as we lived in Singapore at the time, about as far removed from snow as you can imagine. It has been circulating among family members for many years and was returned to us a few weeks ago - it now decorates our gallery shop window.
