How are you? Have you had a good new week until now? I do hope you have.
It is the first time that I have not written to you and haven't updated my web site for 2 months since I started both of them since August, 2005.
I had two accidents and injured my internal organs, ribs and one of my legs during a course of painting from nature in the Taihang Mountains in Henbei Province in the mid-late of August, so that I had to come back Beijing earlier than my supervisor and some of my classmates.
Then I had to lie in bed for several weeks and then to prepare my dissertation with the ache inside and on my ribs and leg for the mid-examination would be started in Chinese National Academy of Arts since Oct 22.
Until yesterday afternoon, the first draft of my dissertation which I had corrected 12 to 22 times in different parts was passed by my supervisor and got his signature, and one of my classmates who is also an assitant of the supervisor said that according to his experience what I had done should be passed by the group of the professors who would check my jobs. If he was right, then I would be able to continue to write the paper and then to face the thesis oral defend next May. Otherwise, I would have to repeatedly do it once more. :- )
Anyway, since the deadline that my paper should be handed in the office of the Fine Arts Department of the Graduate School at Chinese National Academy of Arts on Oct 22, so, now, I would like to write this letter to you, which I should do 7 weeks ago.
So, now, it is just a short letter to say Hello to you and let you know what has happened on my side. Meanwhile, I would also like to share some of my assignments which I had painted from the nature with the Chinese brusher directly in Taihang Mountains in August. And hope to bring you a big smile.
Although I cann't paint as usual yet, but I have re-started to learn my English for 2 or 3 hours every day for 21 days already. I would also like to recover my painting, calligraphy study and writing jobs as long as I can do them.
Therefore, the attached first photo with this letter was taken in Taihang Mountains on August 21 and the second was taken on August 19, 2018,before the accidents happened. I am the one painting in the middle and the one on the left is my supervisor.
How about you? Do you have anything special during the time I missed? I really hope you have had a wonderful time indeed.
Have a good new day.
Sincerely, I am just a student on Arts of Painting, Music, English and Management,and work on the web site in my free time. I would really like to do something with what I have learned, to make this little web site to be a little Electronic Bridge of Cross -cultural and Comprehensive Art Study and Chinese Language Learning, to help the others while to improve myself.
I would like to appreciate you for your good understanding, directions, supports and help.
