    Description

    It looks scary and strong, powerful and overwhelming. It has large, dangerous teeth, round, wide-open eyes, and a threateningly oversized red body. It appears to be undefeatable, and that the best anyone can do is to stay out of its way.

    But a red monster is not a free being; it lives with its owner. And each of us carries one with us and knows this spirit, though perhaps only few know it in depth. This being is named Mara, a little anger demon. He is not terribly smart or creative; nor is he intelligent. Mara is simple and has only one way to interact: by scaring others. He has no particular reason to do so, but it is the only thing Mara knows. In reality, he isn’t strong at all and is burdened with his own fear. Actually he would like to be guided and  be called only when he is needed. Instead  Mara is struggling without clear commands  of his owner and acts unpredictable, chaotic and carefree.

    The female figure in my painting has got to know her Mara more closely, and she is in the process of becoming his master.

    This painting brings to mind how fragile our environment is. On a recent hike in Lake Tahoe forest, saw how bark beetles have such a great effect on the forest.

    Nice color, composition and mood, with wonderful brushstrokes! Love it!

    Very believable use of color. Painterly brushstrokes and the glow of the sun through the tree keeps the viewer in the painting.

    This painting just draws the viewer in. Really like the reflections in the puddles and the depth of field.

    So good!
