It was with delight that a collector asked me to paint an image similar to one I had painted in the past. This collector had seen the original image in my published book "Zoe Meets Confucius".
With this request it gave me the opportunity to revisit and make some changes from the first one that I had painted which is titled:
"With a few flowers in my garden, half a dozen pictures and some books, I live without envy". (A quote by Lope de Vega).
It is fun to compare the two and to see how the changes have evolved.
