Many, many of my dad’s paintings are of sceneries in China. He would travel to China at least once a year, visit different places. He has been as far as Tibet, Inner Mongolia… places that I hope to visit one day. Here are some his paintings of China…
The Hills of Flame at Turufan, Kansu (甘肃). Kansu borders Mongolia to the north and Xinjiang Province to the west.
Round Houses at Yong-ding, Fujian. The “round houses” are actually earthen castles of the Hakka people. Read more about these unique round earthen fortresses here.
Mount Huang (黄山). This is but one of the paintings that my dad did of Huangshan (literally “Yellow Mountain”). From the way he described it and from what I have seen in his paintings, this is on my places-to-visit list. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Mountains of Zhangjiajie (Hunan Province)
Jiuzaigou, China. Another UNESCO World Heritage Site.
