Title: Chinese Gongbi--010(Flower & Bird): Let Us Hug The Green
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 88cm x 66cm
Completed Time: Sat, Sep 3, 2005
Remarks:
This is my 10th Chinese Gong Bi Painting. I worked on it for over 40 hours. Today, I colored it for 13 hours I completed this picture by myself for my teacher could not offer a lesson. So, you can see many places have not been dealt with well. I have not known how to deal with the eyes of the birds with the Gong Bi style yet. So, now , they are just like people's, right? :-)

I colored my pictures according to my imagination. I am not sure whether there is a pansy peony in the world. But, I love the color and wanted to make the colors rich on my picture. So, I did it.

I created this picture as "Let¨s Hug The Green" for I got an inspiration from a wonderful card with picture, music, poems and rich colors from a good friend. I do love the flowers, colors, and the poetic language. Especially, I enjoyed the creative imagination that the maker made the tricolor to be 4 ones and made the green on the No 1 position. I did think it¨s a great idea because green is the nature mother's color. It is the headspring of all the other colors. :-) Can you imagine? When I was a middle school student, my favorite color was white; when I was a university student, my favourite colors were blue and white. After I was a teacher, it was blue. Two years ago, after I re- started to paint, I found that every color has its own character, and plays an important role in the world. No matter what kind of colors, if we put it on a suitable place, it is the beautiful one. Along with the time, I found that I in fact love all of the colors. However, green is the color that I used most. Today, I used 14 mix colors dishes, 3 of them were green.:-)So, when I found the Green was listed into the tricolor on the card from my good friend. I was smiling and knowing what and how I should express with my ^colors playing" Now, I completed it in the midnight on Saturday, I do hope you enjoy it and hear your opinion as well..
