I can hear the birds, especially the air is clear and fresh. Fortunately I got chance to watch the sunset, the sunlight with mountain and waves in the lake...it's hard to describe by words. As a person who grow up in a big city, I can feel what a wonderful world in that moment, that kind of environment can make me calm down and think clearly. I created this work by hard pastel. It makes the whole picture looks bit hazy and calm.
