Learning the Meaning of the Poem

In ancient Chinese painting theory, people thought that a painting should include the meaning of a poem. Meanwhile, Chinese poem theory thought that a poem should write out of a picture in it. This is just one of the reasons I would like to create pictures to match Chinese classical poems.

I do feel the learning from these great poems is helping me to create with a wider my eye view and a bigger imagine room... :-) There are more and more things and meaning have come into my pictures. Even though I have not often made them good, my teacher has given me three 90 marks in my past 14 combined painting. Also, I got my the first 95 marks for the painting last week.

Here are the paintings that have got 90 or 95 marks:

The Dinging from the Mountains on (Completed on Wed., July 4, 2007)

Missing In the Moonlight(Completed on Sat, Aug18, 2007)

A White Snow Song(Completed on Sep 2, 2007)

Anyway, I do not think that I have made a best job on this new painting. I feel the views a little bit mass and the river part have not been dealt with good yet.

How do you think of my new painting? Do you enjoy it?
