Description

Growing up in China with the doctrine that "religion is poison" [Mao], my view on religion was not a cozy one but it has changed slowly.  Though I am still somewhat leery of organized religion, I do appreciate the power of solace religions can provide.

This year I have a rather difficult beginning and seeking such comfort perhaps was what compelled me to work on this painting, dominated by a compassionate weeping face. The sadness and compassionate eyes comforted me during the time of difficulty and suffering.
