Artist's Description

Original sold: 36 × 43 cm.
It is located in the southwestern part of Kunming, 2600 ft. above sea level, a remote area.(China)
Because of its lack of infrastructure and inadequate transportation and lodging, most travel agencies would not think of going there.
But for those who have seen the pictures of the Red land, no one can resist being attracted to its beautiful scenery! In these mountains and hills every inch of land is cultivated to the maximum causing unwanted damage to the place through erosion.
That’s why returning to forestry is being advocated. Crops on the Red Land such as potatoes, oats, corn, oil flower vegetables.
Different coloured crops, so arranged that when looking from afar, it seems like God has painted a cloth of gorgeous colours.
Above is part of an e-mail I received this morning from a friend, I just couldn’t resist to paint my own version of it! The pictures were so colourful.

Different seasons, different time, different sunlight, produce different colours!
This hallowed place is the most distinct part of the land. Later, in order to promote tourism it was named Lexiaguo, meaning – the place where beautiful colours set.
