"This painting is about my dad's dream of going
fishing on a big boat in the ocean.
In his early experiences he told me that he would get very, very
seasick from going out on a big boat.
My dad has also told me everyday, If I have a dream,
to make my dream come true, to be persevering, to never let my fear
hold me back. I have followed my dad's footsteps. It's come
from both my parents.
I am just telling my dad in this painting, "Now it is my turn
to tell you the same thing. You have to be persevering. You can't
let your fears hold you back."
In this painting I caught the big, big fish. I'm here
on the right,
and this is my father on the left.
The blue sun is shinning on my dad, all the light is
shining on him. He wants to go fishing but he still doesn't have
that strong, strong courage to go in a big boat out on the ocean.
I know he will one day."
