Title: Chinese Xieyi--063(Flower & Bird): The Last Picture Before Spring Festival
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 66cm x 44cm
Completed Time: Thur, Jan 26, 2006
Remarks:
This is my 63rd Chinese Xieyi picture. I created in my art lesson within 2 hours according to the requirement by my Chinese painting teacher. :-) This is the first time that I learned to paint wistaria. I really enjoyed its colors and I did enjoy the feeling to "play" colors. :-) It is said that purple means dream and people who love purple usually have the qualities to enjoy making dream and most of them are artists. Do you believe it?

For making my playing more conveniently, I went shopping today and changed all of my tools to be chinaware except my brushers and colors. I wanted to use new tools in a New Year with a totally fresh heart and feelings. So I have had 4 kinds of tools for Chinese Xie Yi painting, Chinese Gongbi painting, Gouache and Oil. :-) The china wares really make me feel good for they themselves are also some art works with Chinese pictures on them. :-)
