Title: Shirley Created Art 483rd-02 - Chinese Xieyi -259-02: Orchid Practice- Feb 11, 2010
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 45cm x 27cm (17.71inches x 10.63inches)
Completed Time: Feb 11, 2010
Remarks:
This is my 260thChinese Xieyi Painting -02 and my 483rd (02) painting since 2003. Also, it is the 10th (29th) painting (Practice) that I have created in 2010.

I did not think that I had mastered the painting style of orchids. So, as soon as I had time, I tried to read art books or art data via DVD -- It is the winter holiday time of the university, too many high school students have gone to my art teacher' art studios to learn painting since he is famous on tutoring students to enter the art colleges. So, I encouraged him to help the students and we canceled my lessons in his holiday.

Then, Tuesday night, I created my new orchid painting. Then in the next early morning, I created another one before going to my office.

When I was painting, I enjoyed the beautiful and comfortable feeling so much. Suddenly, I understood why there is an idiom -- Mei Qi He Zi -- take a plum blossom as his wife and crane as his child, to express a very high-hearted feeling.

Now I just use the black paper to decorate it temporarily, later, I will invite a professional art company decorate. :-)

How do you think of the two paintings? Which one is better?
