This is from my earliest series, “The Faces of China.” painted when I was 22, just after a concert tour in China in 1982. I remember being struck by the symbiosis of the elderly being the caretakers of the little ones and beautifully that worked in their culture. I still think how amazing it would be if we did something similar in our society. I met this gentleman near Zuchow, the Venice of the East. He is a member of one of over 82 ethnicities in China.
