Title: Shirley's Art Works 1069 & Chinese Baimiao -58-Tree Peonies My 106th Painting in the USA and the 30th Painting in my 6th American Travel Dec 09-10, 2015
Artist: Shirley Yiping Zhang
Size: 44.50cm x 90.00 cm ( 17.51inches x 35.43inches) Chinese Ink on the Shuxian Paper
Completed Time: Dec 09 -10, 2015
Remarks:
This is My my 1069th Painting since 2003 and my 58th Chinese Bai Mao,my 106th Paintings in the USA and the 30th Painting in my 6th American Travel Dec 09-10, 2015.

I painted this painting for I would like to do a demonstration at the gallery of Ava Artist Guild. To share the process how Chinese paint a Chinese Gongbi from painting from the nature, then to order them at home, then to change it to be a Chinese Baimiao and then to color it to be a Chinese Gongbi Painting, and then to be a Chinese Mogu Painting...

I was very busy at USA, therefore, I could only work on it in the night and almost every night I worked until 1:30am or 2:00am and often felt too tired to keep working.

However, every time, when I was working on it, I did feel my heart getting peaceful. So, when I was too sleepy, I touched some cold water on my head or I had a short nap against on my table, then I kept working on it.

I was happy that I completed it ahead two days before I went to Ava, then I would have time to color it to be a Chinese Mogu Painting.

Both of them are below and I do hope you enjoy it.

Anyway, today, when I upload these painting on the web site, I felt so shame for I have not paint any Chinese Baimiao painting for about 16 months. Though I did it but just for drafting for a Chinese Gongbi painting instead of a typical Chinese Baimiao Painting though it is one of my favorite painting.

So, in the upcoming days, I would work more on it... :-)
