Qi Zhilong



I am a huge admirer of Chinese born artist Qi Zhilong. His enormous portraits based on Chinese propaganda posters are truly wonderful. I hope we can see some of his paintings during our time here in China.

These are so striking and breathtaking! Just had to come in for a closer look even though I knew it would mean getting overwhelmed with your adventure and all of the envy and excitement it would cause me! I miss you - somehow it feels like you're away even though, in terms of the internet you are no further away than you were! I just need to visit more often.

After reading some of your past posts (and so wishing that my town was organized with all like shops in one place) I am left with one big question. How the heck are you going to check all that on the airplane when you come home? hee hee Guess you'll be hiring John Travolta and his plane to move you back, maybe. That would be my plan anyway - first one that came to mind no matter how logical it is.

Alas, your move has made me even more envious of you and your exquisite collections and eye for all things cool (as I have often told you that you possess). I thought I was as envious as could be, but no, there's more envy in there.

Addendum - I am not envious of the grocery shopping. Do you need a care package? With a large hammer and cleaver?
