However, that is also the result of the ten years of hard training with the companionship of the biological mother.
“My mother recounted, 2-3 months old, my hands always like to scratch on the ground. Every time people lift them up, they cry, they just drop their hands on the ground to draw and draw crabs, and then they stay silent. About 3-4 years old, he begins to hold a pen to draw. The walls of the house were filled with my drawings everywhere at that time. Until now, I did not know how to sell paintings. I drew a picture, until people asked how much money I started trembling. My wife, too, is shy when talking about money “- the artist said.
Besides, painter Tien also surprised Quoc Thuan and Ngoc Lan when sharing most of the money he earned from selling paintings, he donated to charity, helping difficult circumstances.

In particular, Ngoc Lan could not hold back the tears, releasing the feelings that had been pent up for a long time.

“I draw but can’t sell. People just come to ask, but if they ask, I give. Whoever has money can send as much as possible. But I am very lucky. I work at the City Fine Arts Association, once at a personal exhibition in June 2018, 63 paintings on display I painted were bought by participants in just 2 hours. For the second time in January 2019, I painted 85 paintings, which were also bought in the exhibition ”- painter Dr. humbly talked about his achievement.
