Title: Shirley Created Art -- Gouache--0106: Summer
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 35.5cm x 25.5cm
Completed Time: Tue, Dec 19, 2007
Remarks:
This is my 106th Gouache Painting.

I painted on Tuesday night for my new vocal music teacher Ms. Huang moved her lesson to be Wednesday. :-)

I painted it with a little bit stomachache -- recently, I often feel a little bit tired and stomachache maybe for working for a too long time each day and there is no a weekend for too long time with a tight nerve. :-)

Anyway, I think, since I am sitting on the sofa now, then, I'd better to do something with my mind and hands, instead of to feel the pain in my stomach only. :-)

I do enjoy the feeling to "Play" colors and I do feel the biggest relaxed and freedom when I working on my painting. Can you imagine? No matter what has happened in the work and in my life, as soon as I come back home as soon as I am working on my painting. I will feel a peaceful and a kind feeling. Can you imagine? When I completed this picture, I do feel that my stomachache has gone a little... :-)

My teacher looked at my painting in my art lesson Friday evening and gave me 85 marks for my colors are not rich enough, and the dark places have not been dark enough. Anyway, my teacher was confident of my color feelings...

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