Years ago, while in high school, I've heard that Tapioca House (one of the many tapioca cafes in Houston Chinatown) would hang anyone's artwork on their walls, and I took advantage of it. So I put up a few random stuff, as you can see below. For the past few years (especially since I started college), I sorta forgot about them, and finally this winter break I decided to go check on them, perhaps take one of my paintings back.
These are a series of silly colorful fruitiness that I did for leisure years and years ago.
In a funny turn of events, I get a call last night from someone who is interested in buying the pineapple one. It was really good timing, since I'm actually in town and I was in the middle of thinking of what to do with these. So I sold it. The remaining 3 fruits are still hanging there.
And, feeling a bit nostalgic, I decided to take back my painting of japanese marble soda bottles. It was my very first try with oils, and it won an Honorable Mention in 2004 in a Houston area art competition.
As you can probably tell, it's slipping out of its frame, after hanging here neglected for the past 3-4 years.
I also noticed it's the first thing that comes up when you Google Image search "yvonne weng". Weird, haha.
