Honored to be one of 40 artists creating original artwork in celebration of Hello Kitty’s 40th Anniversary Exhibition at the Japanese American National Museum

October 11th, 2014 - April 26th, 2015

For Kitty’s 40th, I hiked up a glorious golden mountain seeking a transcending experience…

On a quest to explore beauty in subtlety…

Where I stumbled upon fields of romantic peony flowers…

And was greeted by a happy couple that walked among the clouds…

They spoke of unspoken messages where all love is left unsaid, but understood…

I became a Believer.

Pinocchio’s Dream reminds us to count our blessings and follow our hearts. Anything is possible if you truly believe.

Alice in Slumberland shows Alice singing a sweet lullaby to one she treasures and loves – her cat Dinah. Sometimes the most curious dream reminds us that life is truly beautiful.

Today, June 28th 2014 marks a whole 23 years in the US since our arrival in 1991 from Taiwan. Freshly brewed coffee, sunny San Francisco, painting at the studio… gratitude and love.

徐馬丁日記:6月28日1991到美國,今天整整23年,一大早起來,在家煮了咖啡,走著陽光普照的18街,30分鐘後進畫室,看看爺爺奶奶的照片,拿起畫筆,繼續為8月9日在台灣的首次創作個展衝刺。感慨,感動,感恩。#love #gratitude #artist #sf #mission #taiwan #martinhsu
