Mid-Autumn Festival watercolor

“Mid-Autumn Festival,” watercolor.

When the 15th day of the 8th lunar month comes, the moon becomes completely round. We would reunite with our families.

This is our ship shaped like a bird that can take us to where the moon is. Because I think the fairy Chang’e is lonely on the moon with her rabbit everyday. So I want to go to the moon by boat with my family. And watch the moon with the fairy Chang’e during the Mid-Autumn Festival.

Fairy Chang’e is very happy! She also invites us to her home.

 

Editor’s Note: Chang’e is part of a Chinese legend, similar to our “Man on the Moon”


My Chinese Dream watercolor

“My Chinese Dream,” watercolor.

This painting is me boarding the ship to outer space, to see the beauty of the Milky Way. The children from that nation [of the Milky Way] are holding hands. Even the king and queen alien came out to meet us. I want to put the Chinese red flag on the top of their planet. The children of our Chinese nation on earth are singing and dancing and waiting for my good news!


Sky City watercolor

“Sky City,” watercolor.

If I had a time machine, I would want to fly to the future. There is a great city in space. The city is like a huge jellyfish. There is light and fresh air in it. People can walk in the transparent tubes between buildings. Every family has a flying car, and there are many shops floating in the sky. There are so many beautiful gardens where people can walk. These buildings have strange shapes. People can stop their flying cars on the rooves. The yellow building is like a cup. It has a very big trumpet that can make fresh air. The spaceship shaped like a squid is taking us to this city. I like this super city! How do you imagine a super city in your mind?
