Title: Shirley Created Art -Gouache -0127: Mountains 嫖匯峠幹恬議邦頚鮫-0127: 表
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 35.50cm x 25.50cm (13.98inches x 10.03inches)
Completed Time: Saturday, May 11, 2008
Remarks:
Last weekend, Feb, 2009, I did not paint for I was involved myself in my new lesson. So, I would like to show you my 127th Gouache Painting. It is also my 377th painting since 2003 and the 24th painting in 2008.

I like almost every thing in the nature. I not only like the mountains with green trees, flowers and grass, I also like the mountains just with the stone or snow. :-) The former makes me think of the youth and vital force, power of the life; the latter makes me think of the strong, stable and safety, makes me think of the word ^mature ̄. :-)

I started to paint this picture on a Saturday night and I continued it at about 6:50am next morning. I wanted to work on it for a while, then to go to my English lesson before 8:30am. But, when I raised my head from the painting, it was over 9:00 am and I had missed my lesson already.

So, I sat down again and continue to work on it until 6:30pm except eating a light meal. :-) I did feel that there were too many things to paint. If I had time, maybe I would be able to paint another 10 days. :-)

This was not my homework and my teacher did not ask me to paint, I just wanted to paint, then I painted it.

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

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, welcom to shirley@ebridge.cn or publish your opinions in Forum . :-)
