Qipao Fashion Show from Chinese New Year Gala 2017

February 14, 2017 8:59:38 PM EST | Beauty of Life (生活点滴) | Comments [评论] (0)

2月11日新英格兰地区华人专业人士在Burlington的Boston Marriott Hotel举办了一场中国春节联欢会。白天是各种讲座,晚上是新年酒会和演出。有17个组织参与了此次讲座和联欢活动。演出的节目并不多但种类繁多,有舞狮,民乐,京剧,舞蹈,独唱,二重唱等。其中最受人欢迎的,当属我们的六人美女旗袍秀啦。这次旗袍秀准备时间很仓促,从计划到演出只有一个半月的时间。这期间大家百忙之中克服各种困难,安排到两次晚上短暂的排练,其余更多的是靠探讨。演出很成功,收到了各方人士的好评,真是感到非常开心,觉得付出的心血很值得。

Daughter's New Digital Drawings

January 7, 2017 7:41:59 PM EST | Growing Story (成长故事) | Comments [评论] (0)

It's my daughter's first year in college. Though doing well academically in science, it's been finally proven drawing is part her life that she can't live without. She has surprising thoughts/dreams/plans that may never realize, but she continues to draw, for now mostly digital. Below are all the drawings she's been commissioned on by a serious professional and teens she encountered online who are passionate about art. I'm glad she has the opportunities to start getting the feel of making money in the real world, though not much, which will sure pave her way to become more independent and take her own responsibilities.

The drawings may be lacking professional techniques, but the point is to show her creativity and imaginations which has been slowly getting to some directions. [More...(更多)]

存留并告别过去

December 31, 2016 11:12:26 PM EST | Sparks of Soul (心路历程)

假如心中有爱
所有的过去
都是一种动情且痛的思念
假如依然惦念
曾经的一切
都是温馨美好的回忆
假如爱已过期没了在意
但愿那些刻在心底的印记
不要演变为仅仅是将来写书的素材 [More...(更多)]

当女人变了,就真的追不回了

December 31, 2016 10:32:02 PM EST | Excerpts (妙语摘录)

当女人粘你的时候,说明她爱你,需要你陪
当女人不再和你吵架,她已经不爱了
当女人不再对你唠叨,她已经死心了
当女人不再对你流泪,她已经心寒了
当女人不再对你撒娇,她已经没热情了
当女人不再要求你的陪伴,她已经失望了
当女人不再与你谈及未来的生活,她正在远离你了
当女人不再与你分享她的快乐,她已经不信任你了
当女人不再计较你打不打电话,她已经漠然了 [More...(更多)]

会不会也放下初心

泱泱国风红楼梦主题曲音乐会及排练活动花絮

May 8, 2016 11:39:19 PM EST | Beauty of Life (生活点滴)

由波士顿音乐家协会乐队和合唱团联合演出的泱泱国风87年红楼梦全版主题音乐会于2016年4月10日在Lexington的Battin Hall(曾经的Cary Hall)上演。我也有幸参加了演出。原本计划只是晚上演出一场,但鉴于观众远远多于场地容量,所以临近时决定下午加演一场。著名作曲家王立平也应邀前 来。一同前来的还有王立平106岁的恩师文怀沙。上半场林湛涛的二胡,翁惠的古筝,甄若矛的琵琶,周明的笛子,特邀演出嘉宾郭雅志的唢呐等汇成一台民风热烈的音乐会。下半场是红楼梦组曲。这里是一小部分演出的照片,以及演出前后陆续的排练,聚会,和庆功会的少部分花絮照片。

Daughter's College Portfolio (女儿申请大学的画集)

March 31, 2016 11:10:52 PM EST | Growing Story (成长故事) | Comments [评论] (0)

女儿今年就要升大学了。原本艺术是她的最爱,但因对科学也有一定的热情,又基于各种现实的考虑,最后只选择了两所纯艺术院校,Pratt Institute 和 RISD,均被录取。Here I'd like to show all the pieces she used to apply to the schools, hope this can be helpful for some parents if their kids are considering quality art schools.

除了初中期间有两年的时间每两个星期上一次彩色铅笔素描的大课(5-6个孩子)以外,女儿从未受过任何专业训练和指导。这几年开始自学Photoshop, 她的digital drawing skill这两年提高很多,但因没有时间,所以不得不采用了以前的她如今已经看不上眼的旧作品。

因为遇见你 我才知道
今生的第一束鲜花
会写着你的温柔盛开
带给我小鸟初飞时的狂喜

因为遇见你 我才知道
无碱欠发的馒头
也能回味无穷 只因那是你
为我的第一次

因为遇见你 我才知道
被一片心湖浸润过的衣裳
会是一生的温暖
一世的陪伴 [More...(更多)]
