Before my father passed away on January 2017, I had already started the animal series, which I titled “Life along Life Path”. In these works I created mythical kinds of animals; mixed creatures of deer, horse, goat or sheep. I painted these animals in pink spring time or under a hot summer sun, in the glorious golden autumn or even let them experience the harsh winter winds. Then my father died of Alzheimer's as well as old age. In grief, I turned to paint animals in a group setting. I did a solo art show in Barcelona, Spain in July 2017 to memorialize his love of art, film, and photography. After coming back to the USA from Spain I gradually started a new series call “99-sheep”. The name is from the parable of ninety-nine sheep in the Gospels of Matthew (18:12-14) and Luke (15:3-7). The story talks about a shepherd who leaves his flock of ninety-nine sheep in order to find the one which is lost and he rejoices greatly when the lost sheep is found. In my grief, I actually felt like the one lost and I depicted it in my painting as the invisible sheep in a white outline. The sheep is trying to find the way or the meaning of life and wandered off from the rest of flock alone.
