This is my my 484th painting since 2003 and my 24th integrated painting. Also, it is the 11st (30th) painting that I have created in 2010.

I had created a painting to match the classical poem by Tang Dynasty poet Du Fu below in July, 2008. But, I have not been satisfying it and I have not been finding a time to create a piece of music for the poem until the Chinese New Year's holiday in 2010.

The flowers everywhere in my city gave me an idea to create a new painting, when I was thinking of my painting, I thought of the poem, then I combine the painting and the poem together Thursday night. Then I did not satisfy it yet. So, as soon as I started my holiday Friday night, I created the new one.

Anyway, compare with the first painting in 2008, I feel that maybe I am thinking that maybe I should combine the two painting's views together.

How do you think of the three paintings? Do you agree with my ideas?

MAIN MEANING of the POEM

Find Flowers by the River Alone

By Du Pu ( Tang )

Ms. Huang Si's path is covered by flowers,
ten thousand bended the branches down.
Playful butterfly are dancing, unwilling leave,
free cute birds are "Qia Qia"singing
