It was only last week, when I was painting the giraffe, a Japanese student, who was studying Chinese in Beijing and was on vacation in HK, passed by and we talked about art and his study and exchanged contact emails. He flew back to Japan the other day and then came the powerful earthquake. Relieved to learn that he was safe but he wrote he and his family was in deep shock and greatly saddened by this disaster.
It is indeed a big tragedy. Let's pray for those in grief and pain will get speedy help.
