Apricot Tree in Bloom, original mixed media painting by Zhang Zhen Jiang
Loess, fine yellow-brown soil, carried by the winds from Central Asia and deposited over China, provided a basis for early productive farming, in China. The Loess Plateau, also know as the Huangtu Plateau, is located in Northern China, covering most of Shanxi and Shaanxi Provence, as well as part of Gansu and Inner Mongolia.
In the painting, it is April, and the sun is shining, lighting up the yellow earth and the old apricot tree. The flowers on the tree were blooming, and the whole old Loess Plateau was brimming with vigor.
We liked the colors, the imagery, and the theme, plus it prompted me to look up loess and learn something new.

|Mizhi Women and Suide Men, original
watercolor painting by Zhang Zhenjiang (2010)
Shanbei is the name given to the northern part of Shaanxi Province and is located on the Loess Plateau. It also includes the birthplace of the Chinese Communist Revolution.
In this region, the women of Mizhi are said to be the most beautiful, intelligent and gracious, while the men of Suide are said to be the strongest, smartest and most handsome.
Zhang was completely swept away by the charm of the region. The sky was vast, the ground was a muddy yellow, and old wine and red flowers could be found everywhere. It is his dream to return to that paradise, some day.
