About the Paintings

Lily 

Easter is coming soon.

Lily means resurrection. 

Biography of Matthew from the Bible 

Look at the lilies blooming in the field. How do they bloom? 

I didn’t work hard 

But even in Solomon’s glory, that dress 

It is not as good as this lily.

A Journal

When I went for a walk, the old house was demolished. The trees in the garden have also been felled. I retrieved the scrolling log and drew it.

關於作品

「百合」

復活節快到了。 

百合花意味著復活。 

摘自聖經的馬修傳記 

看看田間盛開的百合花。它們如何開花? 

我沒有努力工作

但是即使在所羅門的榮耀中,那件衣服 

它不如這個百合花那麼好。

「日誌」

我去散步時,老房子被拆了。 花園裡的樹木也被砍伐了。 我取回了正在滾動的日誌並繪製了它。
