# Reasons


Why pictures and videos are not updated so fast?

  • Joshua is working full time as a public accountant. 

  • Teaching Chinese brush painting and calligraphy classes

  • Booking and preparing for next demonstration

  • Selling calligraphy & painting works online worldwide

  • Organizing pictures and videos between several computers, cell phones, and hard drives for storage and editing. 

  • Serving as the President of Dallas Chinese Calligraphy & Painting Association from January 2015 and January 2018. (Hopefully someone else can be the next president in 2018.)

  • Administrator of two WeChat groups of CalligraPainting (One for the Association; one for my classes.)

  • Periodically updating other areas of this Website

  • Various local requests, business activities, and art investment projects

  • Other local cultural activities - Dallas is getting even more culturally diversified than ever, especially for the innumerous activities in the Chinese community. I hope to stay home for more personal practice and more time in painting.


I try to keep everything organized and balanced in life and arts. Usually I add a few most important pictures right after the event, and then eventually come back to add more pictures and videos when I have time.





Due to distractions such as space and time limitation and noises, substandard samples are not included here.


Videos (if recorded and available)

Good fortune or blessings,








I love you ( 我愛你 ) in Chinese calligraphy
