A Recent Painting - "Hindrance"

During the last few days of June, I put on final touches on this painting, which was started more than 15 years ago!

Before I started to retouch on this piece, the painting was dominated by the red tree over green background. It was not unpleasant but rather too simple and even silly. It was also full of hope.

Fifteen years later, I cannot let that big blotch of red dominate the canvas and covered it with layers and layers of white and grey paints. Then, I brought branches out of gray clouds and added more details, such as some writings, symbols and hand marks. What do they mean? I have my explanations but I would rather leave it to the viewers to interpret.

Hindrance / 阻力 / Behinderung
