Title: Gouache--099(Flower & Bird): To the Memory of My First American Art Teacher
Artist: Shirley Yiping Zhang
Size: 9.00 cm x 26 cm (3.54inches x 10.23 inches )
Completed Time: Nov 17, 2003 / March 17, 2015
Remarks:
This is my 99th Gouache painting and my 967th painting since March 17, 2003.

I painted it from the nature Nov, 2003 in my city Shenzhen which there are flowers out of door for whole of a year.

I did not realize it has been saved in my sketching book for 12 years until the winter vacation of Chinese National Academy of Arts, 2015.

There were so much beautiful recalling and sad feelings at my heart at the moment I found it. I would like to put it on my wet site and to the memory of my first American art teacher Mr. Charlie K since it was him who led me re-take up my paintbrush and re-go on the art road.

If there were no him there to help me, I would not become a graduate student of Chinese National Academy of Arts and go on a professional art road.

With a grateful heart, I would like to use this painting to celebrate the birthday of Mr. Charlie K.

I do hope Mr. Charlie K good lucky and peaceful in the heaven. Mr. Charlie K will be alive at my heart forever.
