Foreword


This book is born from my thoughts, which is created into an artwork: my paintings. I love nature: the moon and sun, trees, rivers and ocean, waterfall and flowers and the living creatures in the forest and the vast water of the earth. Even if this life is not perfect, all I see in nature is pure wonder. So, from the paintings I have created the thoughts of heaven. I am alive and heaven I believe is found in after life. And Eden is a place where everything in sight is beautiful and magical, if not heavenly. It is paradise as described in the story of Adam and Eve. A place of perfect bliss, the dictionaries say. Thus, I titled this book, ‘A glimpse of Eden’ because everything about nature is beautiful and heavenly and my artwork is all about the glimpses of the beautiful earth. Why? They all remind me of love, goodness, and joy. And I truly believe it is God’s way of telling us that He is right here with us.


Every work I did was coming from my thoughts. I claim that I themed this book from the movie of St. Francis de Assisi; Brother Sun and Sister moon because most of my artwork has a sun or a moon in it. Believe me I went to see the movie Pocahontas all by myself and loved the story, the soundtrack, the pictures and everything. If I were to choose, I would love to paint every scene the moon appears and every place of sunset. But I am still a full time working Realtor, thus my time is limited and I can seldom hold my paint brushes lest travel and capture the captivating sights of the day and night. Perhaps with the help of art enthusiasts my position will get better in time. And these I pray that I can just paint my time away without worrying where to find resources to pay my bills. Creating art calms my spirit and provides peace in my soul. It is my joy. It is a longing. One dearest desire of my heart.
