Something Fishy

Shiao Wang took his fish to the Bei Tou Market and rented a small stall next to three ladies from the Chen family who had opened a shop selling knitting supplies and teaching housewives how to knit. They scolded him demanding that he move down a few stalls so that the odor of his trade would not scare off their customers.

~I am posting from Taiwan.  I have spent a restful and much needed relaxing weekend here with my brother and sister-in-law.  Yesterday Tamra and I explored the market in their new neighborhood where I bought knitting yarn for the long airplane ride home and a watermelon.


  1. I am trying to picture you with knitting needles and yarn on your lap...and a watermelon...

    Shiao Wang looks like he's heard it all before...

    Happy days

  2. Dear Jeanne-Ming, I just love your paintings! The texture you get and the colors you use. It all speaks to me! Have a good plane ride back!! Hugs, Silke

  3. I am so glad you are back and with this gem!

  4. I love the colors and rosy powdered cheeks! Have a blessed day Jeanne-Ming! :)

  5. I love the way Shiao Wang rolls his eyes...says so much.
    I hope you had a safe trip home...and a lot of knitting :)

  6. Yes, his eyes are telling the story.
    Thanks so much for your lovely words that warm my heart.
    Have a nice trip!

  7. Makes me smile.

    Yarn and a watermelon. Sigh.

  8. What a beautiful painting! The texture and colors are great :o)
