"We're just performers wearing our acts.When the burgundy velvet curtain opened, the show of life started... Every performers had a cry mask and a laugh one...But,
The true artists would only showed their smile ,teardrops, they kept it themselves..."

linh nhân lệ - nước mắt con hát

"....Nước mắt, y sớm vứt bỏ đă nhiều năm lắm rồi.

Ly thu thích cười, cũng chỉ biết cười, cười rồi dịu dàng chân khiết, cười rồi có thể hóa trăm ngàn sắt đá thành tơ mỏng lụa mềm.

Cũng như, chưa từng có người thấy Ly Thu rơi nước mắt.

Bởi v́, nụ cười y dành cho kẻ khác, c̣n nước mắt, chỉ giữ lại chính ḿnh...."

This is a very beautiful piece with wonderful brush work! And to think you only did it in a night! Wow! I love the details on the headdress and the tassels handing. Looking closely you can see one of the individual strands! My only critique on the piece would be to maybe bring some of the intricate details to the bottom right corner of the piece as well? The left side of the piece is so intricate against the right side (although the brushwork on that side is too very nice-- and I like the effect with the red ink), I just think something more needs to be added to that side. Maybe something like the blue piece of jewelery on the left hand bottom? Still, extremely beautiful piece!
What do you think?

This is amazing! The richness of the colors, rough texture and smooth flow of the textures all combined is just spectacular!
