concepts in action as I demonstrate painting a portrait from a live model. I’ll verbalize my

Painting Demonstration by

Mary Qian

I feel my art is like an open diary. It records my
Artist Statement:
life, and the life around me.
My paintings are my preferred way to explain myself to the world. They speak of the things I don't know how to put into words.
Painting is a process and it connects me, my sitters and the viewers.  It is a bridge between past and present.
I want to paint people, because people intrigue me, especially during the process of communication in silence.

I hope viewers will feel what I felt in the moments of painting. See what inspired me!
