Clouds Abstraction 03

Inspired by the clouds formation in the deep summer heat. The shapes and color changes. Everything changes. The intensity changes into lightness; the feather-like clouds changes into thunders. Everything is in constant flow - coming and going.

Sunset Series 5

Yin and yang are inseparable. It is the principles of mutual generation and mutual formation. One cannot exist without the other. There is light, and there's darkness; there is dawn, and there's sunset. Fire, water, air, earth, interact themselves with each other. The cycle continues and changes forever.

Pears of You and Me

Pears of you and me

And the others,

We are a family.

So sweet, so juicy

So much possibility not to make it.

It is good to be here.

It is good to ripen.

It is great to be of service.

Pears of you and me, and the others,

We are a society.

Fiery Midday Sunflower

In this day and age people often feel powerless, lacking of energy and purpose. Our life is occupied with meaningless chatter and noises. However, a sunflower, like nature itself, it is powerful and unapologizing. Its strength shocks us. It is more than mere beauty. There's no fear in being herself.

Pears with a Pink Bottle

The world of still life in the afternoon light of the studio. It brings great comfort to this chaotic life. No matter how things go, I will keep in touch with the warmth and kindness of my heart.

Sunflower No. 7

That summer we lost our beacon,
We drifted on the vast, turbulent sea, we are so lonesome!
We cried every morning.
At night we searched for Sirius, the brightest on the horizon.
We drank to oblivion.
We fell and dreamt of our kingdom. Far, far away...

No home,
No friends,
The lonely travelers kept going.
The damp smell of sea salt and gin. 
The sounds of screaming, shouting, mocking
Midnight howling,
And the wild, wild karmic wind.

In the magic realm of the seen and unseen world,
The eternal sunshine of the spotless mind shines.
With crystal tears,
We vow to keep sailing

Sailing on this endless ocean of joy, sorrow, and the mixtures......

We are only human, you know.

Poem and painting by Yeachin Tsai
