Title: Shirley Created Art -- Chinese Xieyi -- 0167: Peonies -03
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 35cm x 53cm
Completed Time: Friday, May 30, 2008
Remarks:
This is my 167th Chinese Xieyi Painting that I painted in My Art Lesson.Also, it is my 332nd painting since 2003, the 25th painting that I have painted in 2008.

Last week was the first time that I did not paint anything even though I wanted to follow my teacher's requests to paint peony every day in my mind. I could not do that because of the earthquake in my country, the possible traveling for a long time in August or September and the busy work in the company.

Anyway, my mind told me that no matter what has happened or will happen, I can never give up my art dream of painting, music and language. So, this week I re-took up my brushes and painted this picture as a practice.

A piece of good news is that my teacher is helping me to apply a Chinese painting grade certificate. Now, my painting had past the Shenzhen's assess and it has been sent to Beijing to make the finally assess. It is said that I would be given a certificate of 8 to 9 grace and the highest grace is 10.

How do you think of my new paintings, do your enjoy them?
