I created this picture to match a Chinese classical poem by one of the most famous poet in Chinese poetry history Du Fu, to describe a corner of the earlier spring view.

You see, two yellow birds are singings on the willow, a team of white birds is flying in the blue sky, the boat that was from the far away East Wu is by the bank near out of the window and the snow mountain far away is shining in the sunshine...

I had thought of it and designed it in my mind for 3 nights and I started to create it since Thursday night and completed it on Saturday night.

My teacher did not come to offer an art lesson Thursday night. It is a little bit pity and also a good thing for I would have time to create my own painting in my limited free time. After all, I had to have a company meeting for 4 hours in the Saturday afternoon.

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