Title: Shirley's Art Works 1329- Chinese Mogu 79- Shirley's 611st Assignment & the 202nd One in the 2nd Phase of CNAA- Feb 22, 2017
Artist: Shirley Yiping Zhang
Size: 33cm x 33.00cm ( 13.00inches x 13.00inches)
Completed Time: Feb 22, 2018
Remarks:
This is my 79thChinese Mogu Painting and my 1328th painting since 2003,my 609th Assignment of Chinese National Academy of Arts & the 201st One in the 2nd Phase of CNAA.

As soon as I completed my 79th Chinese Mogu Painting with the red leaves which is a little bit near the watercolor style for my sister for appreciating her good help on my English, I realized that may be not her favorite, so, I tried to paint another one which is a little bit near Chinese Xieyi style wit the blue and golden flowers.

However, I did not think it was good enough after I had given it to the postman, so, I did it once more.

Now, I am happy is not for I have painted some Chinese Mogu painting, but for I have written a paper with 10,300 Chinese characters with about 100 hours within 6.5 days.

Do you know why? After seeing my new Chinese Mogu paintings, two of my former university classmates were interested in them and wanted me to introduce something about it. Although I had written an article to do it in English in 2013, I do not think I had the understanding about it very completed at that time. So, I tried to re-write something to introduce it in Chinese. Then I myself didn't think that I would write for 6 and a half days for more than 100 hours and even I didn't go upstairs for whole of the week... Then I think that I have done a "Great Job" and mentioned out of something new ... :-)

Although I was quite tired for I had worked for 24 hours continually twice in the last 3 days so that I felt dizzy when I finish the last word, I was very glad for I have completed the first paper on arts in 2018. :-)

How do you think of these paintings? Which one is better in your opinion?
