The Dream of Lantau is a special original work. The recipient spent several years living in Hong Kong and had many joyful memories attached to this time in her life. To commemorate this I have tried to capture one of her happy memories, a sunset hike up Lantau Peak, in this expressive piece. By playing around with scale I have included some of the famous landmarks of the island: the peak itself (left), the seascape of small islands and the Big Buddha (lower right). She recalls the sky being very clear following the sunset and so I have included the milky way to suggest the beginnings of an especially starry night after the last deep orange light of the setting sun.
