To find a place free fromthevirus, I climbed the hills near my home with my friends (there are many mountains in Dalian City). After reaching the top, we looked up at the patchy clouds in the sky andtookphotos of them witha wide-angle lens. Can you see thethree-dimensional sky?
Late Spring | PENG Zhongyao
I didn’t expect to stay home until spring. I had not experienced the spring in my hometown for a long time. The spring in thesouth regions of the Yangtze River provides people with comprehensive feelings. The temperature of wind and sunlight, colors of leaves, speed and sense of sunset, and humidity and sound of rain remind me ofmychildhood andgive me comfort.

SurprisingMountain| CHEN Yuhong
Because we can’t go out recently, I started to recall the places I’ve visited. When I practicedonthe mountain during thesummer vacation, I walkedacrossa bridge. I thoughttherewas a house in a town at the other end of the bridge,andthe sky above the house.WhenI got closer, I foundthatthe darkareawas a mountain, notthe sky. This feeling was strange. I thought there wasavoid before me, but then I saw the hugesubstance up ahead. On the substance wereshadowy trees, but there were shimmers reflected by the leaves when seen carefully. It was strange that,despite being dark, the huge substance wasn’t overwhelming butcalming. I painted thisin the hope of capturing my feelingsaboutthe scene. I failed to paint theovershadowing feeling of space, so I just want to share this fantastic moment with you.
Chirping overCrowding Houses | ZHANG Haoran
With bright colors arranged on a dull day, I miss the clear sky and flying birds, includingcrows with the interwoven paints. I imagine that I’m walking into the spring in a garden…It’s interesting during leisure time.
