Remarks:
This is my 59th Fixed Chinese Gongbi and Xieyi Painting and my 121st painting since 2003,my 516th Assignment & the 106th One in the 2nd Phase of Cihnese National Acadmey - the 146th painting in the US & 25th painting in my 7th American Travel Feb 19 - March 18 2017.

In the past about 1 month, as soon as I came back from my English lessons, I worked on the First Map of My American Cultural Map Series .

I have completed first 21 birds of my 113 designed birds, but I do not really satisfy the birds for the two states of Nevada and Alaska yet. So, I am going to recreate them.

Now something most confused is that I am not sure I should just paint the state birds of Nevada with the light gray and white bellies or I should paint the female birds with brown chests, because I know its state bird is mountain blue bird, but I do not know it is just male mountain blue bird or both of the male or female mountain blue birds.

Do you know it should be both of not? If they are both, I will be glad to change some of the birds with brown chests and it will be better to look after the colors of the other birds around of them. Right?

Also, I do not think I should paint so many mountain blue birds for the state, but I should cancal some of them. Do you think so?

How do you think of this painting. What your comments and advice do you have?
