Remarks:
This is my 245thChinese Xieyi Painting and my 454th painting since 2003.

I am lucky enough to have Mr. Tao as my Chinese art teacher. As soon as I came back from the US, he recovered his lesson for me.

I am touched so much by my teacher and his wife -- no matter how busy they are, Mr. Tao always keeps his lesson in his free time and his wife looks after their child in the night.

Time has past about 7 years, Mr. Tao still charges his original price as 2003, he has been keeping coming to my place to have a lesson, no matter it is raining or winding...

Recently, I have to fly to Wuxi on my weekends, Mr. Tao changes his lesson time according to my time, and we did not cancel any lesson at all...

After working alone in the US for whole of 1 year, I cherish the lesson face to face so much. So, I have a record a video of my lesson always and I keep making note in our lessons.

Recently, I have been trained to making a structure of a painting. My teacher has taught me more than 10 kinds of styles to making a sketch of a Chinese painting.

This is one of my new paintings days ago, to learn how to create many different new structures via this painting... :-)

My teacher thought that I had done a good job and gave me a score 90. :-)

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