Culture, Science, Technology and Health "Three Going to the Countryside", I drew portraits for villagers
- Time of issue:2018-02-26
On the twenty-seventh day of the twelfth lunar month of Ding You, the sun was shining and the temperature rose. In the afternoon, the 2018 Yuyao City Culture, Science, Technology and Health "Sanxiaxiang" centralized service activity was held in the square in front of the Cultural Auditorium of Guanluyan Village, Lubu Town. As stated in the Yuyao Daily on the second day, this activity is an important work measure to thoroughly implement the spirit of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China and realize the strategy of rural revitalization. It is a powerful starting point for the theme education of "not forgetting the original intention and keeping in mind the mission". It has become a popular project for the people. Over the years, the relevant departments of the city have gone deep into their lives, rooted in the people, and continuously delivered batches of excellent cultural products, scientific knowledge, practical technology, medical and legal services to the countryside, which greatly enriched the spiritual culture and material life of farmers’ friends , Has played an important role in promoting the construction of rural spiritual civilization and promoting the healthy development of rural economy.
As a volunteer of the Municipal Federation of Literary and Art Circles, I was invited to participate in this event, and I painted portraits for the villagers on the spot. The scene was windy, and the easel was lighter and easy to move, and the drawing paper was blown up by the wind several times. I needed to hold it with one hand to stabilize it.
I use carbon strips to sketch characters in the public. I want to be swayed and free, and I am so excited that I can hardly describe the excitement at that time!

Because I haven't shown my face in the circle of friends for many days, and I haven't watched the messages sent by everyone in time, just because I have been taking care of my old mother in the previous stage, and have not been able to take care of the others.
Looking back on the twenty-sixth of the twelfth lunar month, when I was informed that I would go to the "Three Going to the Countryside" activity the next day, I had concerns, because my mother had just left for three days and she did not fundamentally improve her fatigue. ? And Zhang Ying, chairman of our Artists Association, said that it should be possible, and asked me to make people's eyes brighten by sketching characters. I also think this is an opportunity to serve the public, and it is also a time to show whether I have the ability to sketch live characters. .
While painting, an old classmate who was in charge of the exhibition came up. He knew that my mother had just left. "Are you still here to participate in this activity?", I said I want to relieve the pain in my heart and spread love to the world. I thought, This is what the loving mother expected.

I started work early and finished late. In less than two hours, I rushed to draw portrait sketches for three villagers. They are: 72-year-old Xu Shaorong, shy little Xu Jiaqi girl, lively and young 60-year-old village woman Li Guiqin.

When I presented the finished work to them, my nervousness was relieved. This is also the first time I have sketched in the sun, wind, and crowd of so many crowds, no wonder how excited I am.
Afterwards, when I told one of my relatives and friends about the live sketching, he said: You have turned your love for your parents and the pain of losing your parents into positive energy for most people's service. The spirit is worthy of admiration and recognition! Another corporate boss said: This is a practical action for Mr. Yang Ming to "unify knowledge and action".

I think that my parents and my parents who are already in heaven will definitely be happy for your son to serve the villagers, record and convey the beautiful moments on earth.
Saying goodbye to the old and welcoming the new, I wish all my relatives and friends who care about me and my family the best wishes for the new year. Zhang Zhong wishes everyone a new year!

Note: The process of the formation of this article: On the day of the New Year’s Eve, I was at my desk. When I opened QQ, I received 11 live sketching photos sent to me by Chairman Zhang Ying of the Artists Association. The excitement made me beyond words. He was passionate, and he chose a variety of angles. I thought that this sketching process should be written as an article with both pictures and texts. It has a sense of grounding and is the best review and record. I have asked the photographer, Chairman Zhang Ying. After agreeing, I plan to publish this article on my WeChat Moments on New Year’s Eve.
