This is my my 496th painting since 2003 and my 25th integrated painting. Also, it is the 13rd (42nd) 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. I created the Second Picture for the Poem Feb 13, 2010 and I create a piece of music for the poem in the Chinese New Year's holiday in 2010.

Anyway, I did not satisfy it at all. So, I have been thinking how to improve it. Wednesday morning, I got up at about 5:00am and I created the painting below. Then I re-created it Thursday morning before going to my office, noon in my lunch time and Saturday night.

However, during I was working on it. Something disturbed my peaceful heart, reflected in my painting, this picture seems like a little bit confused. :-)

Therefore, I know that I should continue to train myself much more to keep a peaceful heart via learning painting.

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
