Title: Shirley Created Art -- Chinese Xieyi 0124: Fine Spring Scenery
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 98cm x 67cm
Completed Time: Friday, February 23, 2007
Remarks:
This is my 124th Chinese Xieyi -- Freehand Brushworks Painting that I created on the 3rd day after I came back from my Chinese New Year's Holiday, also it is the 2nd picture that I created within the 3 days. :-)

Last night, I was in the creative emotion when I was watching a long TV situation comedy and I was reading some album of paintings at the same time. :-) I have been used of doing two things at the same time since I came to Shenzhen. :-)

I have been wishing to create a picture to respond a piece of good news from a good friend who has got 2 babies in the past 2 weeks. :-)

When I saw the two lovely babies in the hands of her/his mother, I could not help to smiles and to pray for the lovely babies and wished them happy and lucky in the new world in the sunshine. :-)

I do wish this world that we are living is peaceful, calm and full of the friendship and love with our common work and effort... :-)

This is the biggest size Chinese Xieyi Painting that I have created ? 98cm x 67cm. I worked on it from 10:00 pm and completed it at 3:00am. As usual, I did not do any draft with a pencil, just painted it with my brushes and colors directly, very freedom and very enjoyment. :-)

After I finished it, I could not help to smile to myself and also I could not help to ask myself, if I had a boyfriend or a husband, I would like to respect his culture and habit, anyway, would he like me to start a new painting at so later time? :-) Would I have a freedom to start a picture creating at any time I want? :- )

Oh, do you have any family as an artist? If your dearest one was an artist and wanted to have a freedom to create something artistic, how would you treat her/him when she/he was in the emotion to create at some especial time? Give a support? Be Angry? Or to wonder at nothing?

How do you think of this picture? Do you enjoy it?
