Oh wonderful, just wonderful! And you paint a new story every day - the person you knew all that time ago, who used to post a new painting on his gate - he must be looking down on you and smiling :)
I visited him the year before he died and took several of my paintings to show him, including a portrait of him. He had very dry hands, almost like paper. He handled each painting, studying them and feeling the texture. Then he handed the portrait back to me. "Humph!" He snorted. " I am much more handsome than that."I agreed.Then he told me what bothered him most. "You know little Ming, your paintings can't be rolled up and hidden in a suitcase. If you have to flee from America, all your art will be lost."He was 96. He was still painting. He was still waiting for his starlet to return.
