Taipei, July 25 (CNA) A high school student from Taipei has completed a novel working holiday program in outlying Kinmen County: creating 15 paintings capturing local scenery in exchange for a free two-week stay.

Lin Yu-te (林祐德), a first year student at Taipei Municipal Zhong-zheng Senior High School, pitched the idea to a bed and breakfast owner because it met his ambition to paint and travel at the same time, and the owner had no regrets that he accepted the deal.

Chuang Shih-hung (莊士弘), who hosted Lin during the period, thanked Lin for the paintings and described them as beautiful snapshots of the island.

He said he will put Lin's works on display and print postcards based on the images created.

Lin traveled across traditional villages of Cyonglin, Shanhou, Zhushan, Shuitou and Gugang and tried to depict the island's historic atmosphere in his works.

Kinmen is located barely 10 kilometers off China's southeastern coast and was on the front lines of Taiwan's resistance to China during the Cold War and was the target of heavy bombardment in 1958.

Lin also went to Kinmen National Park to sketch old iconic houses in his paintings and visited the seaside to take in the wide open views and get into a peaceful state of mind.

The high school student, whose Facebook page is followed by 1,600 fans, said Kinmen is a quiet and simple but passionate place.

There were still many areas he wanted to visit but didn't have time to get to this year, but he plans to go back next year, Lin said.

Chuang said he hoped similar working holiday programs could serve as an incentive to draw young tourists to Kinmen.
