Title: Shirley's Art Works 970 & Chinese Xieyi 520-Shirley's 350th Assignment at Chinese National Academy of Arts-June 1, 2015
Artist: Shirley Yiping Zhang
Size: 68.00cm x 136.00cm ( 26.77inches x 53.54inches)
Completed Time: June 1, 2014
Remarks:
This is my 520Chinese Xieyi Painting and my 970th painting since 2003, the 350th assignment of Chinese National Academy of Arts.

As soon as I went out of the examination room of 2015 Chinese National English Examination for getting my second master degree (MFA) at Beijing Normal University, I went back my school -- Chinese National Academy of Arts.

Even though I was so tired, at my heart, it was full of the pleasure for I could finally painting again.

You cannot imagine how "Pain" when I was working on my English with 100% of my time and energy and could not painting within the last 50 days before going into the exam room. And you cannot imagine how many times I had dreamed of painting in the past 2 months since March 15 - my school started its new term. Four times.

I mean I have painted in my dreams 4 times since March until now. So, sometimes, I have to ask myself, whether you should re-think of your choices, to focus on painting mainly or to focus on the comprehensive art?

Anyway, I started to this new painting at about 4:30pm yesterday and I completed it tonight. Though I have suffered a serious headache since 2:00am this morning and I had to take 4 pieces of painkillers within 24 hours (the normal account should be 1 peace for 24 hours), I do feel so happy at my heart.

Both my tutors Mr. Lu Wenqing and Mr. Wu Tong praised of me and thought I have done a good job. Also, Mr. Wu Tong directed me to change a way to mix my colors for the bamboo. Then you can see the bamboo at the top right corner and the bamboo in the middle are different, right?

The bamboo in the middle was painted after Mr. Wu's direction, do you think it is better than the bamboo at the top right corner?
