In 2011, I cut down almost all of my activities. I indulged in painting horses. I spent a few hours a day doing my horse painting. Gradually, I had developed a style of my own of painting horses. Eventually, I developed my subject to encompass the themes of equestrian sports such as horse racing, polo and show jumping. Unexpectedly, by adopting the above mentioned themes, I discovered that they had indirectly assisted me to develop an innovative technique as well as a completely different style for Chinese horse painting. .
