Remarks:
This is my 294th Chinese Xieyi Painting and my 525th painting since 2003. Also, it is the 56 (81st) painting (practice) that I have created in 2010.

When you see this painting, can you imagine when I created it?

I started this painting before I went to the hospital, came back from the hospital, went there again and came back again...After I was informed to be suspected to have a cancer this Wednesday to Saturday... :-)

I was surprised to hear the news that the hospital suspected the possibility of a cancer via my annual health checking since I was just excluded cancer Dec, 2009, how can I have a cancer just within the short 7.5 months?

However, when I saw a series of project not in the normal, when I saw a lady doctor wrote "What What Cancer" on my medicine notebook and told me that she will make a biopsy for me next week. I knew, this time, the probability of a cancer is very high...

Instead of crying, feeling frustration or responding violent, I was in a very peaceful heart, to see doctors, to make many different checks, to attend meeting in Shenzhen Stock Exchange, to arrange the work for my colleagues, and to report the news to my boss with a peaceful smile...

Then, I created the biggest painting that I have painted in the past three days...

I am sure, when you see it, you will not worry about me, your friend Shirley.

I am going to face the possible cancer with a very peaceful heart and a positive heart, keep doing my exercises, keep working on every thing I should do, keep catching my limited life, to create something most beautiful for you and for the beautiful world...

Also, I hope to make progress every day, until the last time of my life.

How do you think of this painting, do you enjoy it?
