2004 Hearts In San Francisco, Artist: Hung Liu, Lion Street Stairs, San Francisco, California
image

A wild turkey, with head down, had it wings spread on the front of the Hung Liu heart. Multicolored circles decorated the rest of the heart, and all of the circles dripped paint. One the left side of the back of the Hung Liu heart, connected dots and dripping circles lay ahead of a colorful bird with wings spread. On the back of the Hung Liu heart, a colorful bird took flight. Perhaps to escape dripping circles.

Her first present was a puzzle that featured dogs. A vase filled with sun flowers was a gift from Benny. That was the second bouquet that decorated the dining room table that morning.
