Title: Shirley Created Art - Chinese Xieyi -0215: Language of the Spring- My 17th Painting in the US
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 70cm x 70cm (27.7inch x 27.7inch)
Completed Time: Sat, June 6, 2009
Remarks:
This is my 215thChinese Xieyi Painting and it is two of my 385th pictures since 2003, the 15th picture that I have created in 2009 and the 17th painting in the US.

I like birds and flowers, I have birds and plants as my pets and something favourate in China. I created this picture first time in Feb 17, 2007 for I very enjoy the long tie of the golden pheasant:

My 117th Chinese Xieyi Painting -- Double Beauty

Anyway, at that time, I could not really master the skill to paint peonies, so, I did not satisfy it and I brought this picture to the US for I wanted to re-paint when I have time. So, I did and I completed this picture within 4 hours Saturday night. :-)

This time, I feel that my peonies looked like much better than the old one. I still not satisfy the bamboo. Also, I do not feel the whole of feeling of the new is better than the old one.

So, I would really like re-paint it once more, until I feel good...

The good thing is that during I am in the US, I have seem many flowers by the road, so, I did feel that I have a good feelings when I created my flowers. Very easy and very fast... :-)

Do you like the two pictures? Which one seems like better?
