Remarks:
Since the work of the first phase on the new cooperated project in the company was finished, I have been feeling so easy in my heart even though I have been feeling tired on my body. A strong feeling is that I want to create something that has been in my heart for a long time. So, just in the past 5 days, I painted for two nights and created two pictures. This is just one of them.

I fact, I had wanted to write a Chinese calligraphy. However, when I was finding a piece of paper to do that, a good idea suddenly jumped into my mind -- why I did not paint a picture to match the calligraphy of the poem, then to create a piece of music for it. Then, maybe I can create a new way to explain a Chinese classical poem with a picture, a piece of music, calligraphy and a comment?

I felt excited for my own thought, so, I created this picture quickly... :-)

The poem on the picture is expressing the meaning that when the poet was moving his home from a house/pavilion by a lake, the birds on his house/pavilion sound like they have known him already, so, they were talking to him and singing for him. I guess that maybe they were saying: Take good care of yourself in a new place, have a good time in your new house? :-) About this poem, I will let you more in the Chinese classical poem part later. :-)

My teacher saw this picture Thursday night in my art lesson and thought that my flowers and leaves lack layers, so, just gave me 85 Marks.

Do you enjoy my idea? Do you like this picture?
