Remarks:
This is my 126th Gouache Painting. It is also my 329th painting since 2003 and the 23rd painting in 2008.

Because of May Day holiday, I have not had art lesson on Thursday. So, I taught myself and painted this new picture according to a little photo.

Did you know? As soon as I saw the photo, I had a strong creating impulsion. Even though I was not in a very calm emotion in the first 3 days of the holiday for I have been thinking of something about a new choice. Anyway, I know myself clear, no matter what will happen in my life and work. I will not give up my art of painting, music and language learning. So, after working on my English lesson for 2 days, I ordered myself to sit to paint.

I myself did not think that as soon as I took my brushes and to "play" colors, I entered the painting quickly and my heart started to be in peace, too. Saturday night, after I painted for a long time, I did not think that I had found the feeling, I could not take the nature of this picture. But, on the second day, I suddenly found feeling. I realized that I because I was led by the colors of the photo too much, I must give my painting some fresh life with work, to make it to express my own love to the great nature -- the sunshine, clouds and mountains. Then, I suddenly felt no matter the colors or the bushes easy dealing with much more. So, I have also tried to combine some ways of Gouache and Chinese Painting on it.

Along with the last brush was completed, my heart has been totally calm and being in peaceful style again.

I am happy that I have found art to be something best to accompany me to spend whole of my rest life.

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