Sky is my Land
Watercolor on paper     100cm X 147cm     2008

I could stare into the evening sky for hours since my early childhood watching its mountains, seas and bays, distant villages. These celestial landscapes reminded me of a painting featuring an idyllic landscape that hung on the wall in the round frame at home. So I stared into the sky till it got dark. We could not travel over the world that time. The sky was my promised land.

Many years passed, and one day I found myself in Tibet. Standing on the top of a mountain 4600 meters above the sea level, I realized that the sky is not over my head, or, to be more exact, it is not only over my head, that it is around me, and I am in the heaven already. I remembered my childhood contemplation and thoughts about the heaven. With those thoughts in my mind I painted my series of Tibet watercolors.
