Across the World

A while back, a very creative young lady named Tu Linh found my blog and emailed me to talk about art. It never ceases to amaze me how the Internet connects people with like interests from all over the world—Tu Linh is from Vietnam, and we were talking (with special thanks to her excellent English skills) across continents, about our love for art and being creative. This soon led to some mail correspondence, and imagine my smile when I received these wonderful paintings in the mail last month, completely by surprise!


Aren’t these paintings great! I love the different “fonts” she uses, and the combination of pen and watercolor! I especially love the black and white swirling pattern on the table and chairs. Tu Linh loves fish, as is evidenced by these paintings, but she also has started a blog named after this love, Ocean and Fishes. She is an amazingly creative person—in addition to painting, she also takes great pictures and even makes videos.

One of the main things Tu Linh and I have talked about is how to make time for art. Tu Linh struggles with the same thing that a lot of us struggle with—how do you find time for art in addition to everything else? I’m glad to see that she is making time! It seems to me that this is what makes an artist—a willingness to make time for art, against all odds.

Here are some more shots of her paintings:



Thanks Tu Linh for sharing a bit of your creative life with me, and now with everyone, via your blog! Keep it up!
