Remarks:
This is my 451Chinese Xieyi Painting and my 859th painting since 2003, the 249th assignment of Chinese National Academy of Arts.

Also, it is my 25th painting in my travel in the USA since Sep 13, 2013.

Pine is one of my favorite trees. I love it because it is green for whole of the year, even in the snow in the cold winter, because it is freight and strong. Just like Mr. Tao Zhu wrote: “不择地势,不畏严寒酷热, 随处茁壮地生长起来bù zé dì shì,bù wèi yán hán kù rè,suí chù zhuó zhuàng de shēng zhǎng qǐ lái ” — it does not choose the topography, “it does not fear deep cold or intense heat, and it grows healthily and strongly everywhere.

Recently, I did meet some quite bit difficulties, one of them was: during I edited the album of my paintings, for matching my designer and printer in China, I did not get sleep for 5 nights, for we must completed it before the factory was close. So, sometimes, when I could not sit on the chair because of the ache on my waist, I carried a chair and put it on a short table, to work by standing up...

Even though it was really an extremely hard process, after I completed it and I raised my head to see the pins out of the windows, I did understand why Chinese love pine

When I write here, also I think of the pine forest in Waterloo that I had visited in Belgium 2000. I do not want to comment the war there, just I still remember the quiet and the solemn in the huge pine forest.

I cannot help thinking that every one who wants to pursue a dream, must pay a cost. Many of people have given their lives for their dreams, I am just paying some hard work. Compare with them, what I am doing is just a little thing as a little bit nail. Right?

Anyway, the will is same. Right?

With a respectful heart, I painted this painting. And hope you enjoy it.
