Spring inspiration from nature and neighbourhood

Spring has finally arrived here in British Columbia. This is the Iona Beach Regional Park in Richmond. It was a great sunny afternoon in the early spring. There was almost no one out there. I guess it was because of weekday. I was the only one in that huge field at that moment. I was so little. The vast land has now more subtle warm green colours than just greys in the winter time.

春天终于已经来到了BC省,这里是列治文的Iona海边公园。在这个早春阳光明媚的下午,也许是因为周中的关系,这里几乎没人。那一刻,在这片辽阔的土地上,只有我一个人。我很渺小。现在春天的大地已经有更多温暖的绿色,而不像冬天那样的一片灰色。

Early Spring at Iona Beach Regional Park

“Early Spring”, 8×8

There was this tree on the left side in my view that caught my eye. I noticed those glorious leaves on the top branches. This added so much fun to the peaceful landscape.

左边的那棵树进入了我的视线。我注意到树枝上受到光照而发亮的树叶,它们给这片平静的风景带来了乐趣。

Marvel at the beauty of cherry blossom

“Cherry Blossom”, 10×8

The month April has witnessed beautiful cherry blossoms every where in Great Vancouver. I was helping my friend move to a new place the other day. I was surprised to find his place is in a perfect location. This cherry blossom is right in front of his home on the street. There were some crowds coming to the spot to take photos. Everyone marvelled at the beauty of this tree. It is a good looking tree.

Some petals started to fall on the ground, however, they would not stay on the tree forever. As I am writing this now, my friend told me now the ground is paved with the pink and white petals. This beauty is never eternal. We were able to catch that splendid moment, but we could not live that moment. The moment we say we are in the moment, however, it is already gone and became past. This is a profound truth in the universe. H.H. Dorje Chang buddha III has elaborated such truth in the dharma discourse.

大温哥华地区到了每年四月就会见证美丽的樱花盛开。前些天我帮一个好友搬家,我很惊讶他的新家在一个极好的位置,因为他家门前的路上就种满了樱树。人们纷至沓来和樱花一起拍照,每个人都爱上了赏花。这是一颗很漂亮的樱树。

然而一些花瓣已经开始掉落在地上,它们不会永远的在树上。就在我现在写到这里时,好友告诉我现在路上已经铺上了很多粉白色花瓣。樱花的美不是永恒的。我们能够抓住那美丽的瞬间,可是我们没法一直处在当时的那个状况。如果说能够抓住当下,那么说完这句话的时候,刚才的当下已经成为过去。这是深刻的宇宙真理,更多关于此理的详述可以在H.H.南无第三世多杰羌佛的法音中听闻到。

毎年四月はバンクーバーの桜の美しさは見えられる。あの日、良い友達と引っ越して新しい家に行った。この家はとっても素晴らしい!家の前の道に桜いっぱいだったから、私はびっくりした。人々は桜と一緒に写真を撮ってお花見に好きだった。その桜は一番きれかった。

でも、少し花びらは道に見えた。それたちは永遠に木の上に存在できない。ここに書き時は、良い友達はいろいろピンクと白い花びらは道に落ちちゃったと話した。桜はずっと美しいことはできない。私たちはその美しい瞬間をつかんでも、住んでいる瞬間はできなかった。もしその瞬間つかむことあれば、お話し終わる時に、さっきの瞬間は過去になった。これは深い宇宙の真理である。もっとその真実の詳述はH.H.南无第三世多杰羌佛の仏法のお話に聞かれる。

Painting tulips en plein air

“Tulips Duo”, 6×4

Tulips are also on the top list that people like to plant in the spring season. I spent the afternoon painting these tulips en plain air in the garden of our neighbourhood. Thanks to all the neighbours that take good care of these plants and flowers, I was able to bury myself with the fresh yellow tulips. At that moment I became tulips! It is so delighted to be able to do outdoor painting for the floral study. This also helps a lot with developing painting skills.

春天的季节里人们也喜欢种植郁金香。昨天下午我在小区的二楼花园搭起了画架,开始画花坛里的郁金香。十分感谢邻居们对这些花花草草的悉心照料,我才得以找到如此新嫩的黄郁金香。那一刻,我觉得自己也变成了郁金香!很高兴能够在一个好天气的户外写生,研习花卉。外出写生对提高绘画技巧实在太有帮助了。
