never give up on your dream….
let love be a blossoming flower in our hearts
the love we have in our hearts….
is the only never-changing myth

The Music
The Myth – Endless Love – Jackie Chan | Hee-seon Kim
The Story
The Myth
General Meng Yi is tasked with escorting the Korean Princess Ok-Soo from her homeland of Korea to China, where she will become a concubine of the Qin Emperor. (I found these references after the painting was finished, as i wanted to tie the piece to a story that had it’s roots in ancient China)

The empress to be’s outfit is inspired by imagery of that era but it is not traditional dress, this is a blending of asian and oriental and western dress styles, i have used my artist licence liberally here

This is my first painting in a long time, after too long an absence from my first love…. I am slowly returning to painting….as i painted this picture an awareness swept over me…that painting is my first love and how much I’ve missed it……..

While painting this, some of the song lyrics from ‘My Endless Love’ by Donna Summer, were foremost in my mind at the time

my first love
you’re every breath that I take
You’re every step I make

inspired by ancient china
