No Idea

Mrs. Sung's kitchen girl answered the door just before dinner. It was one of the many Chen boys stopping by to inquire if she had seen Exceeding Joy, Uncle Tu's wayward bird, flitting about.

Little Kwai answered. "I have no idea where that bird has gone. Why would you expect it ever to come back?"

  1. Laughing over what a character that little bird was. He is a force to be reckoned with! Lovely painting.

  2. Gorgeous painting! And I love the little stories that you write with them. :) Silke

  3. I couldn't find you fast enough, I thought I lost your site.

    Happy times.

    I love everything here.

    Love Renee xoxo

  4. Beautiful work, I love your characters and the color palette warm and relaxing...

  5. Sooooooo beautiful! I love it! You are amazing!

  6. The question being, WOULD one expect a bird ever to come back?
    My French grandmother kept turtledoves in huge floor-to-ceiling cages. When I was a child, this seemed reasonable. They sang beautifully. They had more room than most caged birds. They seemed content.

    ... were they??
