Title: Shirley Created Art 521 - Chinese Xieyi -291: Spring- July 20, 2010
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: cm x cm (inches x inches)
Completed Time: July 20, 2010
Remarks:
This is my 291stChinese Xieyi Painting and my 521st painting since 2003. Also, it is the 51st (77th) painting (practice) that I have created in 2010.

I like birds and little animals.

Every day, I spend some time to look after my birds, to observe their features, to enjoy their beautiful singings... I have gotten much enjoyment and many inspirations from these little and lovely lives... :-)

I like to paint birds. Except the little birds, I enjoy painting the golden pheasants for I like their beautiful feather and their long tails. I have created more than 10 paintings of golden pheasants in the past several years. :-)

Since I completed the last golden pheasant for a friend with Chinese Xieyi style, and the last golden pheasant with Chinese Gongbi Stylein my sickness, I have been wanting to find a time to create a new painting of golden pheasant with Chinese Xieyi style since I do not satisfy the structure of the old one and my eyes do not support me to create a Chinese Gongbi style at this time...

Tuesday night, I was in the emotion to create. So, I created this new painting of golden pheasant with many very bright colors... :-)

Anyway, I feel that I should be able to improve it. So, I will re-create a new one someday when I am in the creating emotion. :-)

How do you think of this new painting? Do you think that I have made a little bit progress?
