Title: Shirley's Art Works 1079-- Chinese Mogu 71- --My 114th Painting in the USA and the 38th One in My 6th American Travel- Jan 15, 2016
Artist: Shirley Yiping Zhang
Size: 53.00cm x 26.00 cm ( 20.86inches x 10.23inches) Chinese Ink on the Paper
Completed Time: Jan 18, 2016
Remarks:
This is my 70thChinese Mogu Painting and my 1077th painting since 2003. It is also my 114th Paintings in the USA and the 38th Painting in my 6th American Travel Jan 15, 2016.

I was majored in Chinese Flower and Bird Painting in Chinese National Academy of Arts for 4 years and in China Central Academy of Fine Arts for 1 year. However, because I would like to teach, so, since I went to Beijing, I have been attending the Chinese Landscape and Chinese Figure Painting as many as possible so that I have forgotten what I was majored in... :-)

Until last week, in my English lesson in the USA, I realized that I have found a wonderful series subjects and I am going to complete the first one after I go back to Beijing and before I come back to the USA in the Fall of 2016 -- to paint a series of American States' Birds and Flowers on an American Map... :-)

Then I realized it is the time for me to develop my own specialty indeed.

So, now, I have checked and download over 1,000 birds already. This is the first bird as my practice this week... :-)

How do you think of this bird? Do you like it? Do you think I should color the background with Chinese Tea?
