I had intended to have a good sleep at weekend, but I awoke to the sound of the outside, a man's voice, who I don't even know him, though I had heard him speak many times at the same time. So I got up, you know, as long as you wake up in the morning, it's very hard to fall asleep, and then I made a painting--narcissus.
I like to paint traditional Chinese painting because it differ from other kind of painting,such as pencil sketch, oil painting,which were modified by many times, but the traditional Chinese painting will not. Befor you start to draw, you must have an impression in your mind. It can train your judgment and outline the content you want to express, and refine it.
Speaking of the narcissus, I think of the poem --“I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud” was written by William Wordsworth, now share with you together.
I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.
The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed --- and gazed --- but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:
For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.
