Title: Shirley Created Art 494 - Chinese Xieyi -272: Peony Practice- March 5, 2010
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 33.00cm x 33.00cm (12.99inches x 12.99inches)
Completed Time: March 5, 2010
Remarks:
This is my 272ndChinese Xieyi Painting and my 494th painting since 2003. Also, it is the 21st (40th) painting (practice) that I have created in 2010.

It is for a long time, I wished I could retire from my management position tomorrow and to work on my art of painting, music and language as a professional artist. This week, when I was working on my new paintings and my 5th work paper in 2010, suddenlyI have some new idea -- In fact, management is everywhere, painting and music also need management.

When I am painting, I must manage my layout, construct, colors and so on. When I am singing, I must manage my breath and control my boy to help my voice... If I can management my colors, layout, construction well, I can create a beautiful painting. Music is same.

So, the work of management in the company is not contradictory with the creating of art and music creating at home. I can learn something new among the arts of painting, music and management...

With the new idea, I made a new Peony Practice and I made them to be decorated by the different colored paper temporarily.

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