Title: Shirley's Art Works 1030 & Chinese Xieyi 560-A344- Shirley's 398th Assignment at Chinese National Academy of Arts-July 4, 2015
Artist: Shirley Yiping Zhang
Size: 40.00cm x 133.00cm ( 17.49inches x 52.36inches)
Completed Time: July 4, 2014
Remarks:
This is my 560thChinese Xieyi Painting and my 1030th painting since 2003, the 398th assignment of Chinese National Academy of Arts.

I had painted this painting 4 times but I had no anyone in my hands before I started it this time. For both of the subjects red-crowned crane and birthday - peach on the painting symbolize lucky and longevity and to combine them together is one of the best birthday gifts, all the 4 paintings had been sent out as gifts.

One of them was sent to the Chinese Program of Missouri State University for its 5th birthday in May, 2012.

Therefore, I tried to paint it once more as a practice and also for I myself wants to have it in my own hands.

I was glad for many classmates thinking the lines on my painting wonderful and one of my tutor Mr. Lu Wenqin thought I did a good job on it.

How do you think of this painting? Do you enjoy it?
