Oil on Panel with Worshipping Papers, 9″ x 12″, Collection of Artist
On the South end of Peel Street, in Hong Kong, is a tiny temple I would pass by on my way to Central when I walked from our apartment in the mid levels. This little guardian lion was always covered in ashes from the joss sticks lit for offerings and prayers. Since I passed by often I wanted to create a painting that would remind me, and be a momento of my daily life there. To add interest I used Chinese worshipping papers in the upper left corner.
