Hi, Annie. I’ve started painting ( again), and finished 2 so far. 1 is scene from “Sand Key Park” in clearwater, and the other is ” Garden of Royal Palace” called CHANG KYUNG GOONG in Seoul, Korea. I hope these painting would help you feel better, and get well from flu immediately.
The painting size of Park is 24×36, and the royal palace is 18×24.
As you can see, the oil isn’t completely dry, yet, so I put 2 pictures from taking different angle. You remember the park, right? Me and dad’s one of favorite place. We cross the bridge in the painting to come to the park, dad used to fishing behind the hill, I read the cooking book ( so funny), eat sandwich, and a cup of coffee taste was incredible in there. This picture was taken 7.8years ago, when the park has been developed. So there is no more rock debris like painting, and everything is well settled now, but I like this look also. By the way, all those rocks are in front of the water, so people can seat, and fishing, and anything you want.
And another is autumn in Seoul, Korea. Me and my friends visited one of royal palace in Lee Dynasty. I used to go there for field trip when I was in elementary school. It has been changed a lot, and well reserved. I felt like I was in little kid again. This is first painting, and there will be second one coming out from the garden of palace. Taking picture is so different than taking foods. The real painting looks much better than this one, I think.( HO HO)
Annie, enjoy the painting, and I’ll send you next one as soon as I finish it.
Always take good care of yourself, for you and for me. I love you, soooo… much.
Korea’s east side is connected to Pacific Ocean. It is called East Ocean near the Korea side.
It’s very famous for clean water and beautiful landscape. Personally, it was my honeymoon course 30 years ago.
We went up to Sok Cho, 38 military divided line between south and north Korea, the city started with people who were from north Korea on Korean war 1950. They were run away for democracy, but miss their hometown, so settled as close as possible. Therefore, visitors can taste the authentic north side of Korean food .
The east ocean side is one of the favorable places for wedding and vacation. There are many attractive areas for couples and families.
There are more than 100 ginkgo trees lined both sides of the road. It reminds me of Soho – like atmosphere in New York city. Tiny, but unique stores are lined with trees thru 1/2 mile long. I found that most store’s owners are the real designer for their items in their store, – fashion designer for clothing store, industrial art designer for accessory shop, leather designers, galleries, cozy restaurants and coffee shops, etc.
It was an awesome day dating with my best friend, in a fine fall day, at the fantastic place. Talking, shopping, having coffee, eating , doing many, many things that when we were young, and single in Korea.- so warm and comfy feeling.
One shot in front of the strip. You can see the ginkgo trees and the shops side of the road. Oop? I didn’t know I was in front of the Starbucks, it’s everywhere I go.
I and JinWoo, my friend, went into a cozy coffee shop, it’s like european style cafe. nice, umm?
Temple is usually located in the secular area, like deep mountains. But the BongEun Temple (sa) is in the busiest city called SamSung Dong in GangNam. It has been built 1,200 years ago in the Unified Shilla dynasty. The traditional Korean architect surrounding modern high – rise building is undeniably charming. Even though, it is in the city, still gives me so much comfort and peace. Because of the location, there’s more foreign visitors than Koreans, – surrounding by coex convention center, the trade building, department store and hotels, etc.
The entrance of the BongEun Temple. It was a beautiful autumn day !
The autumn flowers, different colors of chrysanthemum, are decorated on the way to the DaeWoongJun (대웅전), the main temple, and is the center of all religious activities. DaeWoong ( meaning ” big hero” ) is another name for Buddha.
I used think that the reason of the peaceful image of temple is because the location resigned in a quiet mountain. Today, I realized that the meaning of the Buddha in temple makes people calm and comforting, not the location.
The painted ceiling of each prayer’s room. It has been maintained the originality as much as possible. It’s all painted by hand from a long time ago, and there is a Buddha’s statue down from the brown wall painting.
So impressed by the detail and sincere work with all their mind. Buddha said only mind exist, nothing else.
On the way to Korea:
It takes about almost a day, – 21 hours to 24 hour depending how smooth the flight goes. There is no direct airline from Florida to Korea, so I have to wait at the Hartford airport in Atlanta for 3 -4 hours, transferring from Delta to Korean air. Anyway, just thinking of the process to Korea makes me exhausted.
However, once you are in the process, you actually don’t feel that bad than you think. The flight from Atlanta was
departed 12: 30 in the morning, – insane hour, wasn’t it? but, on the other hand, we can just sleep, at least 4,5 hours.
I had the Bibimbob as a meal in the plane, – so cute and tasty, and a couple of snack times, watching movies, little sleep with tormenting position, etc. Finally, arrived at the Inchon airport 4:30 in the morning after 14& 1/2 hours of flighting, mammamia !!!
