Oil, 24 x 30 inch Tiananman Square
One summer, after our son had spent his first teaching year in China,
we decided “this is our time to go, because we don’t know
if we will ever get this chance again.”
This was some time ago. We spent a week in 4 cities on the mainland.
I kept saying, “All I wish is to see Tiananmen square.”
We spent the last 3 days of our week in China in Beijing.
Hubs and son visited the Big Wall, while I painted in the street,
we visited the Forbidden City (buildings of previous monarchs),
ate the famous Peking duck, and hotpot. All great tourist
places, but I still had not seen Tiananmen Square!
The very last day we stopped at an open-air market
to buy gifts for our family. Then a sudden rainstorm broke
out, and we ran across a large square to the restaurant
to the other side, and ate hot pot (One dumps thin slices
of meat or vegetables, one by one in a pot
with hot bouillon and spices – delicious). After coming out
of the restaurant, we discovered that big square
was Tiananmen square! The cheerful view of
all these umbrellas on this square belies the sobering fact
that once so much innocent blood of students was spilled.
As a memorial, I had to paint this capture after we
came back, with our son in foreground
The lives that were lost deserve it.
Driving along the freeway in Dallas –
judging from the other high
rises, this one looks higher.
Sorry, no idea which company it represents.
