Completed Time: Dec 6, 2013
Remarks:
This is my 445Chinese Xieyi Painting and my 848th painting since 2003, the 238th assignment of Chinese National Academy of Arts.

Also it is the 16th painting I completed in my travel in USA.

I was worrying in my heart for a long time, because I had no the condition to paint a little bit big size painting. So, since I was thinking of staying in the USA until my art exhibition is finished on Feb 28, 2014. The pre-condition should be able to resolve this problem.

So, on the black Friday, I asked my former classmate of Missouri State University Mr. Zhu Bin to help me. Then we went to 3 shops to buy the material, then on Dec 2, Mr. Zhu Bin and I made a professional Chinese Painting Board. Even though I have not found a suitable felt to cover it, at least, I can paint by standing up.

I was so happy when I saw my painting board 220cm x 110cm (86.61 inches x 43.30 inches), so that I could not help painting in the night, Dec 2, and I completed it Dec 6 (I did not paint on Dec 3).

Then I could not help waiting for to paint the second one.

Do you know? Even though I do not think the stone of the second painting is good yet, my heart has getting calm down and peaceful, so that I felt that I would be able to stay in the US until my art exhibition is finished.

After all, painting is my favorite and it can bring me so much happiness and peace in my heart, as long as I can paint, I do not care where I am. :-)

How do you think of the two painting, which one is better in your opinion?
