title: Story of a boat person.
This painting depicts my personal story of 1975.
The detail of the three white flowers on my dress represents my sister, my brother, and I. All three of us became orphans after the escape from Vietnam.
The two ships represent the Vietnamese merchant ship that took us from Saigon to international water before the engine dies and a cargo ship from Denmark brought us to Hong Kong.
The group of yellow butterflies represents us - the boat people fleeing Vietnam to freedom.
The blue butterfly represents the healing of an old wound.
