Title: Shirley Created Art - Chinese Xieyi -0231: Dream - Peonies-09 My 32nd Painting in the US
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 51cm x 101cm (20 inches x 40 inches)
Completed Time: Fri., July 24, 2009
Remarks:
It is my 231stChinese Xieyi Painting and my 401st picture since 2003, the 30th picture that I have created in 2009 and the 32nd painting in the US.

People said that purple/violet means dream. I am not sure about that, but, purple/violet is really one of my favorite colors. Every time, when I paint a stone or a tree, I like to mix some purple into the colors, it makes the colors very rich...

After scoring 9/10 in the 4th quiz on Wednesday, Friday morning, I got another 9/10 score in my 5th quiz of the Management Information System course. I was happy for that and I could not help creating a new painting before I went to my religion lesson.

Continually, I was exploring a new way to paint the branch of the flowers and first time, I created many purple peonies with a new flower style...

My textbook teaches me peonies have at least 9 basic color systems and also it has at least 6 kinds of main flower style... So, I am trying to create with every different color, and different flower shape...

I know there are many problems in this picture. So, I will continue to learn, to create and to improve...

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