Serenity

萬里可橫行

weather: cloudy
outside: 11°C
mood: okay
I'm not much into art, except for maybe M. C. Escher. Very few paintings make me want to stand still and stare. But this is one of them: Maestro by Talantbek Chekirov.


I'd never heard of this artist before, but I like his paintings. There's also a white female horse entitled "Penelope", but the "Maestro" looks more alive to me.

It reminds me of this Du Fu poem:
