When East Meets West                      16 X 20             Oil on Canvas

I went to the Ravinia Festival concert and watched Yo-Yo Ma’s performance of “Silk Road” in Chicago in 2008.  I could not forget the facial expression of the master of the Chinese Pi-Pa musical instrument, Yang Wei.  A year later, I met Master Yang in person at a concert in Millennium Park and was able to show him the painting that was inspired by his performance in 2008.
