This is a beautiful, peaceful Zheng Xie landscape painting. The painting has lots of bamboo. Some of the bamboo is tall; some of the bamboo is short. The painting seems to have a mountain in the background of the bamboo. The painting is mostly black and brown. You can see lots of Chinese characters (I don’t know what they mean), but I think the painting is very good.
Zheng Xie was born in 1693 in Jiangsu. Although his family was born, he became a scholar. However, he changed jobs, and became one of the Eight Eccentrics of Yangzhou. His paintings are generally of bamboo, orchids and stones. I chose this painting because it gave me a very good impression. I love peaceful paintings.
As I walk, I can see lots of bamboo. I don’t know where I’m going, but I feel happy and peaceful. Today’s weather is very nice, the landscape is beautiful. I can see children playing in the bamboo. Some of the kids are climbing up the mountain, with smiling faces. As I walk past, I smile. Then finally, I see some familiar friends. I’m so happy to see my friends. I can start running or looking around with my friends.
这张画中有一只小鸟站在树枝上。这树枝上有一些绿色的叶子，还有一些花尖上的分支， 看起来像是它们刚刚开花。 中间的鸟吸引了我。黄头，雪白的脖子，红色的胸部和黑色的尾巴，让这张画非常美丽也很丰富多彩。 黑色的尾巴是非常详细的，尾部有几个不同的花纹。 这幅画的左下角是另一个树枝，它似乎很遥远，因为它是比较小的。
在春天时，当天气终于开始变得温暖，阳光照下来，风吹。 粉红色的花朵开始绽放，鸟儿开始唧唧， 蝴蝶开始四处飞。 只是在想这些就会让我微笑，并希望春天很快到来。 如果我在这幅画中，我会在背景中仰望天空，感受自然。
The painting has a small bird that stands on a tree branch. This tree branch also has several green leaves in addition to several flowers on the tip of the branches. The flowers seem like they just recently blossomed. The bird in the middle caught my attention. The yellow head and the white neck, red chest, and the black tail make the whole painting seem very beautiful and colorful. The black tail is very detailed; the tail has several patterns. The tree in the bottom left of the painting seems far away because it is relatively small.
The painting is from the Song Dynasty, and the artist is Zhao Ji. He was born in 1082 and died in 1135. He was the eighth and one of the most famous emperors of the Song Dynasty. He was a skilled poet, painter, and musician. He painted more than 6000 paintings. I chose this painting because the bird and the flowers are caught my eyes. The tiny details of the bird, the flower, and the butterflies are all so cute.
In the springtime, when the weather finally starts to get warm, the sunlight comes down and winds blow. Pink flowers start to blossom, birds start to chirp, and butterflies start to fly around. Just thinking about this makes me smile and want spring to come quickly. If I were in this painting, I would be in the background gazing up at the sky to feel the nature.
“吉祥仙鹤” （Auspicious Crane）是徽宗的画。画上有很多鹤。在中国文化，鹤的意思是长寿和吉祥。鹤也意味着健康和幸福。所以在中国的画，画家都很喜欢画鹤。它的背景是蓝色的。它也有瓦屋面。瓦屋面是红色和绿色的。天上有黄色的云。白和黑色的鹤在中间，所以我们喜欢看这幅画的中间。
“Auspicious Crane” is Huizong’s painting. It has a lot of cranes. In Chinese culture, cranes mean longevity and auspiciousness. It also means health and happiness. So, in many of Chinese paintings, artists like to draw cranes many times. The background is blue. It has a tiled roof. The tiled roof is red and green colored. In the sky, there are yellow clouds. Black and white cranes are in the middle, so our view is focused on the middle.
Huizong is famous eighth emperor of Song Dynasty. He is famous because he believed that Taoism was the best. He prohibited Buddhism. In addition to being an emperor, he was also a poet, painter, calligrapher, and musician. His primary focus of his paintings were birds and flowers.
“Auspicious Crane” is very calming painting. Cranes are flying. But at the red roof, two cranes are not flying. So their position creates a balance that is beautiful. The background is made of silk. The blue color of the silk makes the painting soft. I believe that blue, yellow, black, white, and red colors all coordinate together to create a beautiful painting. I believe that this painting means happiness will come. Despite the many clouds and worries in our life, in the future, the happiness will come.
