Title: Shirley Created Art 482 & Chinese Gongbi - 031: Mid-Spring - Feb 7, 2010
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: cm x cm ( inches x inches) on Silk
Completed Time: Sun, Feb 7, 2010
Remarks:
This is my 32ndChinese Gongbi Painting and my 482nd picture since 2003. The 10th/29th painting/practice in 2010.

I drafted this painting on my sketchbook with pen in the Armed Police Force Hospital of Shenzhen, when I was waiting for the checking Pat/CT (Positron Emission Computed Tomography) after being injected some medicine in my vein on Dec 21.

This weekend, I painted it to be Maibiao with Chinese Ink on a piece of silk, and I colored it.

I did not make sure whether I should color the background for the painting since most of traditional Chinese Gongbi Paintings do not paint the background and I also enjoyed the snow-white silk, since I felt very comfortable when I saw the painting on the white silk. But, I colored it finally, because I thought that the colors of the background could make all of the things on the silk to be connected together... :-)

How do you think of this painting. Do you like I offer a background for the painting or not?
