Title: Shirley Created Art - Chinese Xieyi -0243/242: Plum Blossoms & Little Birds Practice -- My 43th/42st Painting in the US
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 35cm x 53cm (13.78 inches x 20.87 inches)
Completed Time: Sat, August 30, 2009
Remarks:
They are my 242th and 243ndChinese Xieyi Painting and my 412th and 413rd picture since 2003, the 42nd and 43rd picture that I have created in 2009 and the 43th and 44th painting in the US.

After my lesson on Wednesday, Mr. Brad Bodenhausen led my tutor Mr. Gong Xiaoou and I went to a professional art store second time, I handed in my paintings that will be exhibited to be framed there.

Then, after my examination and lesson on Friday, I completed my PPT for my speech in the open ceremony of my art exhibition next Friday.

Then I suddenly didn¨t know what I should do, where I should start to prepare my demonstrate in the opening ceremony site until Saturday afternoon, I just made sure what I should paint there. :-)

I thought that i would paint some peonies, plum blossoms, water lily with Chinese Xieyi style, but introduce how a Chinese Gongbi to be created.

So, at the first, I made some practice of plum blossoms, I had to account my time to complete it for I must master the time I will have...

I do not satisfy the paintings yet, but, I have had no time to re-paint them, I must do the other practice and to account how long time I need on every different painting...

How do you think of the two painting? Which one seems like better?
