Title: Shirley's Art Works 697 & Xieyi 379-A69-Shirley's 89th Assignment in Chinese National Academy of Arts --May 17-19, 2012
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 48cm x 180cm (18.89inches x 70.86inches)
Completed Time: May 20, 2012
Remarks:
This is my 379th Chinese Xieyi Painting and my 697th painting since 2003, the 87th assignment in Chinese National Academy of Arts.

I enjoy painting Red-crowned crane, not only for it is Chinese "national" bird in many people's opinion, there are many good symbolic meanings, but also, I do enjoy its graceful feature, just like a handsome gentleman or a beautiful girl.

Along with the time, I do find I have painted so many red crowned cranes and it has become my favorite painting subject.

This week, I painted 4 red crowned cranes. Even though I do not satisfy my work yet, I did enjoy the painting process.

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