Title: Shirley Created Art - Chinese Xieyi -0220/218: Flowers of Friendship- My 18th/21st Painting in the US
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 35cm x 70cm (13.78inch x 27.56inch)
Completed Time: Thur, June 26, 2009
Remarks:
They are my 218th and 220Chinese Xieyi Painting and it is of my 387th and 320th pictures since 2003, the 17th and 19th picture that I have created in 2009 and the 19th and 20th painting in the US.


I appreciated the two girl missionaries Ms. Fisher and Ms. Stiles for their great jobs to help me to learn Christianity. So, before they moved to the other church Thursday morning, I invited them to have a dinner and see my painting works Wednesday night.

Ms. Stiles is a young girl only 22 years old, she especially enjoyed my flower works and she wanted to get my 193rd Chinese Xieyi painting . I said ok and I promised to re-create a new one for her next morning before her car start before 9:10am.\

I seldom send my art works to a friend for I do not satisfy almost every work yet. I do not want to send a painting that I do not think is my best works.

So, next morning, I got up at about 5:00, with a very peaceful heart, I started to work at 5:30am and I completed this picture at 6:30am. I was very happy that I did not paint one brush wrong and I thought that I had created a picture that I most satisfy after I came to the US.

Since this picture has not been in my hands, so, I wanted to create another one in the night. A friend's crying over the telephone made me so worrying and my heart could not be in the peaceful as I was in the morning. So, you can see the new painting (the one on the right below seems in a quite noise, just like my heart. ;-)

How do you think of these pictures? Which one seems like better?
