wedding-webA Tree Grows in Chinatown: Wedding; Size:16×20; Media: Acrylic paint and inkjet print on silk on canvas.

There is a photo of two young people in fancy dress, my mother’s mother and father…My mother says, “He was 23 and she was 18 when they married in 1928. The bride price included: 2 roast pigs, 24 barbecued ducks, 48 roast chickens, 100 pounds of rice, 200 fortune cookies, 2 dozen oranges, 20 dozen hard boiled eggs, and other things I can’t recall.”
