Whether it is a common wall, a piece of sandy land, or a fallen leaf, they are all vital and soulful.The purpose of painting is exactly to convey the meaning of such life and soul. In my opinion, painters should use their own outstanding discerning ability to observe objectives and practice exclusive ways to dissect and analyze them. Any common objective, which once being deeply comprehended and personalized processed by painters, will definitely appear its remarkable side. Only personalized painting has real artistic attractiveness.
