Shirley Written Chinese Calligraphy of the Poem July 4, 2007

This is my 5th exploring to make picture, poem, music and calligraphy together.

It is also the first time that I created a landscape totally independence. I mean that I had painted my landscape by the watching of my teacher in my art lessons and also I had painted a landscape according to a picture or a photo before. But now, I am learning to create totally alone and I do enjoy the creative process.

For expressing the basic meaning of the poem:

When I was still on the brook,
I heard the sound of a bell
from the far away Bailin Temple,
I berthed my boat and walked through a pine forest
along a little path.
After the rain,
Weather was fair,
Mountains were green,
Clouds were still around,
Just like someone has painted
Four or five peaks southwest... :-)

CHINESE CHARACTERS :

柏林寺南望

郎士元 (唐 )

溪上遥闻精舍钟 -- xi shan yao wang jing she zhong,
泊舟微径度深松 -- po zhou wei jing du shen song。
青山霁后云犹在 -- qingshan qi hou yun you zai,
画出西南四五峰 -- hua chu xinan si wu feng。

I thought for two days, then, I got up at about 6:30 and started it before I went to my office on Wed, then, I came back home to paint for about 30 minutes in my lunch time. Then, I completed it in the night, after my music lesson -- I made my music lesson ahead for I wanted to accompany my son who would come back to China to visit me from Australia Saturday night. :-)

Oh, I will go to have a traveling in 2 hours and I will learn from the nature and try to paint something more for you and also for myself... :-)

How do you see this picture? Do you enjoy it?
