Hard at work!

I am hard at work and it's really interesting being away from home this long but I love being in a new place.  It was quite an adventure finding the art supply store or anything worth finding.  It seems like finding anything here in Hong Kong is a bit of a maze where the mouse needs to find the cheese.  Even though they say that China/Hong Kong is the land of no cheese.
The art supply store was in the area of town where you buy plumbing/lighting/flooring and it was on the 3rd floor of a random office building.  I was a little nervous going into the building because it sort of looked like an apartment building with a security guard, but I found it!
Here is a painting of some of the crowds here in Hong Kong.  It is very crowded here and it's not just the crowd but everyone is in a hurry.  In the United States usually you are given a little bit of a buffer for personal space when you wait in line or even just sitting on a bench.  Not here.  :)  How's your week going?
