Title: Shirley Created Art - Gouache --0122: Early Autumn
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 13.98inchesx 5.50 inches
Completed Time: Thurs, March 20, 2008
Remarks:
This is my 122nd Gouache Paintingthat I have completed in my art lesson. Also it is my 14th painting in 2008.

March 17, Wednesday, is the 5th art learning anniversary and also the birthday of my first Amercian art and music teacher. I started this picture in the night to remember the special time as I did every year.

Since Feb 26, I was robbed, my cleaning lady has been accmpanying me at my home. As she has been doing since 2003, she is my first audience and comment.

On the day I started this picture, she commented my water on the picture several times and she did not think that was good, until now, I have completed it, she still thought that my water seemed like a little road. :-)

However, my Chinese art teacher thought this picture has exceeded his imagine much more. He did not think that I could complete it with a better level and so rich colors. So, I was given 90 marks. Also, he thought that my last 3 gouache paintings

Gouache--0120: Sunshine in The Mountains

Gouache --0121: Autumn

Gouache --0122: Early Autumn

symbolize that my painting level has entered a new level.

What they did not know that in this picture, includes my deep missing and respect with endless sadness to my American teacher who has gone from us already -- Mr. Charlie K and March 17 is just his birthday and also my 5th painting learning anniversary.

I could not paint a big picture to remember this special time as I did every year for the deep hurt from the robbed yet. I am trying to do my best.

How do you think of the thoughts of my cleaning lady and my Chinese art teacher? Do you enjoy the new painting?
