Title: Chinese Xieyi--0101(Flower and Bird): Happy In the Spring
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 52.5cm x 94cm
Completed Time: Wednesday, Oct 18,2006
Remarks:
This is my 101st Chinese Xieyi -- Freehand Brush Works that I created in my art lesson on Wednesday night. :-)

This is the first time that I learned to paint a pheasant with my colored brushes directly. :-)

My teacher thought that I have done a good work and gave me 85 marks and asked me to make it as one of my works to exhibit in an exhibition. But, I did not follow his idea, because, I do not think that I have painted the wings of the exhibit good -- my mind was not very clear its structure when I was painting. So, after I read a book about the structure of the birds once more, I do feel the wing was not good yet.

Our company has invited me to take part in an exhibition of photography, calligraphy and painting tournament. And they hoped me to be the main one in painting part. So, before having my art lesson this week, my teacher helped me to choose 24 piece of my pictures from my three kinds of paintings -- Gouache Paintng, Chinese Xieyi Painting and Chinese Gong Bi Painting . But, I just took 6 of them finally.

I do think that I am still a learner in art field while I am an employee in the company. What I should do is to keep an unambitious attitude, to keep a "Low-Pitched" in the publish occasions. Then, I can really take much more time to learn and to improve myself... :-) I guess that maybe one of reasons that I could keep working, learning and improving myself without any troubles in the past 14 years -- I always gave the opportunities to show our achievement via a TV station, a photo in the newspaper or a magazine to the others. What I more want to have is to live, work and learning in a quiet, peaceful and relaxed circumstance... instead of being troubled by the reporters, flash lights and so on... :-)

For me, a talent, a skill and a beautiful heart inside maybe is something as a huge wealth with value much more than something beauty surface´ :- )

Anyway, one of my friends who had seen this picture wanted to eat my pheasant. Do you think that is a good or bad idea?
