Artist Statement.

“Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out”

Peter Lau is a Canadian Artist who’s passion is painting in Acrylic, Watercolor, Monotype and Photography.  Peter admires people with a distinct and unique view of a subject. It is like a having passionate eye for everything ordinary around you.  It like to turn the ordinary into extraordinary.  It creates beauty and it calms the soul.  Peter also likes to be behind the camera.  Photography allows me to explore God’s creation be it small and large. My acrylic and watercolor paintings let me extend the limit of photography be it exposure, lighting, texture and composition just to name a few.  Peter explores the limit and learns from what he have seen others can do with their paint brush and print making,   To capture those fleeing moments in his minds eyes and record it in whatever medium he has at hand, either in pixels or pigments. he is glad that we has cross our path. Thank you for visiting and God Bless.

    Hi Peter:

    You have a lot of talent in painting. I especially like the dragon fruit and the two dancers. I always wish I could paint like that. By the way, are you selling your paintings?
