On April 18-19, 2009, the Municipal Cultural Center edited the Luting Publicity Collection, organized some art authors, and drove to the township Lijiata, Zhongcun, and Xiaoyun Villages to sketch, which made us feel the strong nostalgia and folk customs. I saw bird animals such as ring-necked pheasants and mountain doves that have never been seen in the natural environment.
The Lu Pavilion in March of the lunar calendar is bright and beautiful in spring, and the birds and flowers are fragrant. It is the season when the spring bamboo shoots are on the market. The boiled bamboo shoot factory is busy and busy; both sides of Xiaolu Daxi are covered with tender and white dried spring bamboo shoots. The scene is spectacular. The fragrant dried bamboo shoots are accompanied by the warm spring breeze to everyone who is sketching in the field at Lijiata Banqiao Guys, I couldn't help being greedy, so I picked a petal and tasted it. It tasted really good!
Early this morning, at Dongqiao in Xiaoyun Village, I just started sketching the scenery of Dafang Bridge. The continuous spring rain came unexpectedly and wet my drawing paper, so I had to ask for help for the aunt who lives nearby. The old man handed me an umbrella, bamboo pole and The ropes, I fixed them to the barricades by the stream to prevent the drawing board from getting wet again.
The rain was getting heavier and it got wet on my coat. An uncle brought a raincoat and put it on my shoulder. The aunt brought me hot tea. From time to time, some people who came back from digging bamboo stopped to watch and repeat. Inviting me to eat at their house, the family affection was overwhelming, and I was deeply moved, as if I had returned to my childhood.
I was very excited about painting, but the paper was soaked by the heavier rain, so I had to move to the corridor of my aunt's house. The aunt next door also cleaned the old table and old stool for me to continue painting.
The sketch "Xiaoyun Dafang Bridge" was finally completed. Together with the two sketches I made yesterday, I showed the villagers to the villagers. Seeing the scenery of the mountains and countryside that I was familiar with was vividly on the paper, the villagers' joy spread over their faces.
The rain is still going on, but I have to say goodbye to the folks and prepare to return with everyone.
While walking by the Xiaolu River, I have left a deep mark on the beautiful scenery and simple nostalgia of Luting Township, no matter the drawing board on my shoulders or in my mind.
Lu Pavilion, I will come again.
