Katy Tse-Blair, Derek Baram and I went to Wolfson College, Oxford to preview Brenda Li’s water colour painting yesterday.  18 of her works painted in 2005 to 2006 are dislpayed at the serene exhibition hall overlooking the Cherwell River.  The spring sun was warm and the reflections on the painting, the people, the wine and fruit punch, the atmosphere are soft and lingering.  Among us, many young and outstanding Hong Kong University scholars furthering their research in Oxford University, Chris Li, Wai Man Chan………………………, the more matured including Sarah Wu, and of course the painter Brenda Li whose son is studying at Cambridge.   Brenda’s son likes Cambrige more than Oxford.  Half of the paintings are already sold and all proceeds will go to AMREF (African Medical and Research Foundation).  Exhibition is from 5-23 February 2007. 

到牛津大學烏辛學院參觀李惠玲水彩畫展,心中曼荼羅源於梵語,乃內心圓滿美善境界;滲入牛津頂角尖峰,時序四季遷變,情懷濃淡輕重,活現自畫像中。趁春光順道尋找盛名的鱒魚酒館 (Trout Inn) ,適值裝修至三月才重開,未能買醉。中途稍停威咸 (Wycombe) 一酒吧,與本地波牛一齊觀看英超。曼聯談笑用兵,客場輕取熱刺四比零;斯文好波的威爾斯國脚傑斯 (Ryan Giggs) 走位靈活,打進第四球。晚膳於鳳凰閣,喜遇傳聰夫人 Patsy, 英國華人高爾夫球會名譽會長鄧樹榮,泗和行董事長謝貴全等在座。

We made a stop at High Wycombe for some refreshment but, most importantly, to satisfy someone’s football interest!!
