Recently, I firstly got the taste of exhibiting my art works to the public. My friend hold a fine art exhibition in Visual Art Center in Admiralty and invited me to join it. So, I had a chance to show  two “Generative Art” paintings in this exhibition. The experience was so great because the art works had a chance to be displayed to the public. I hope that I can hold a second exhibition in the future.

I begin to learn piano now. The piano was bought from  taobao.com where you can find many things with cheap price. This is not the first time for me to learn piano, I had learned it in the past but stopped for a long time. So, I have the basic skills of playing it and try to play it by myself at the moment.,

What’s more is that I am learning SketchUp now. This is a 3D program and the learning curve is rather short. Before learning SketchUp , I used to build 3D model in AutoCAD which you need to spend long time to build the 3D model. I hope using SketchUp can shorten the building time. I am thinking using SketchUp in interior design. I knew one of my classmates who worked in a famous local interior design firm, used SketchUp in their interior design projects. One of the drawback I found in using SketchUp is that I couldn’t build “freeform” model like I can build in Rhino. However, SketchUp has many advantages, one of it is the “Component” library where a large amount of components I can find and use in the interior design project. That may be the reason why more and more interior designers like to use SketchUp. Apart from learning building 3D model, I also need to learn a new render engine called “VRay”. The render effect of VRay is better than that of Mental Ray in 3ds Max. I hope that I can show some VRay renderings in the coming future.
