      When I started this I thought it was a project of a certain quality. But most of them post about cats and dogs or use it for advertising. That doesn’t make any sense. Thank you for taking the journey. All the best!

        It is a shame when such things descend into a popularity show of kittens and bakes. Congratulations on sticking to quality! 🙂

    I love the universal childlike innocence this image conveys.

      Thanks! You found exactly the right words.

    The background is so very like a Chinese painting, more unreal than the little girl, who makes me want to know her name and know how she is in this troubled world! 🙋‍♂️

      Thank you very much, Ashley! I am very happy that people like you see the photos as intended. All the best 😀

    A beautiful, moving photo–one that I can’t separate from current events in China. As you’re so deeply imbued in the country and culture, are you and your art being directly affected? I’ve been thinking of you.

    1. Zettl Fine Arts avatar

      Thank you very much! For me, the situation in China is not of great importance. The unsold paintings from my last exhibition are still in China, but that has to do with the Covid situation.

      My Chinese painter friends are of course “not amused” about the current politics and their situation is certainly much worse than it was a few years ago. But the Chinese are patient and persistent and also know that the “bumpy roads” are almost everywhere in the world at the moment.

    The child, the setting with the striking mountains and the colours are very beautiful.

      Thank you very much! This stretch of land along the Li River is particularly beautiful and has been sung about by ancient poets.
