A big oil painting “Morning Melody” by Mr. Guo Hua won the First Award in the “Beauty of Tibet” Painting Contest, and is exhibited in the Chinese People’s Military Museum in Oct. 26-30, 2011.
On his first trip to Tibet in 2009, he happened to stay in a herder’s home. In the early morning, the daughter of the herder was cooking milk tea for him. Her graceful gesture, serene expression, the soft smile on her face and the good smell in the air made a perfect “melody” in the morning.
"Among all the excellent artworks in the contest, my painting is only unique, if not outstanding, “said Mr. Guo. “I only showed the satisfaction, confidence and harmony in a local herder’s life."
This painting can serve as a good example of what attract people most in modern Tibetan art. According to some judges of the contest, modern Tibetan art is no longer god-oriented as before 1951. Instead, only those featuring ordinary people can best represent the real life in Tibet, which will touch local Tibetans as well as other Tibet enthusiasts in the world.
