Title: Shirley Created Art 473rd - Chinese Xieyi -250-01-02: The Pure -- Dec 31, 2009
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 34 cm x 34 cm ( 13.39 inches x 13.39 inches)
Completed Time: Dec 31, 2009
Remarks:
This is my 250thChinese Xieyi Painting and my 473rd painting since 2003.

Since I went out of the hospital, following my doctors' suggestions, I added my sleep time from 4 to 5 hours to be about 6 hours. Meanwhile, I tried to sleep before 1:00am instead of at 2:30am as I did. Then, instead of painting in the deep night, I create my picture in the early morning before going to my office.

On the last day of 2009, I got up at 5:00am and started to paint at 6:00am. I wanted to make my drafts that I had made in the hospitals to be Chinese Baimiao, then to color them. But, when I scanned my art books, a good idea jumped into my mind. So, I took out some special paper in my bookcase and created a new painting ? I wanted to catch my feeling at once. Otherwise, when the time past, it would disappear and cannot be found back again.

I was so happy to see the white peonies to be created on some yellow and round paper. I felt a special comfortable feeling when I saw it. :-) So, in the noon, at my lunch time, I created another one.

Anyway, I have not mastered the way to create a painting in this kind of paper, how to use the color, how to use the brushers, I do want to try again. : -)

How do you think of my new trying? Which one is better in your opinion?
