Growing friendships among paddy field artwork

Singles pose for a photograph in a paddy field in Jinshan District yesterday. More than 50 single men and women from the district took part in a matchmaking event held in the field at a Jinshan farmer painting village. The paddy field artwork was created by Lu Yongzhong, a famed Jinshan farmer artist renowned for depicting China’s village life, farmers, traditional customs and ancient rituals. The rice field work, entitled “Dragon’s Dream,” is also a form of Jinshan farmer painting, which is characterized by its bright colors and a simple style. Lu started his living artwork in April, using five colors of rice plants to create a dragon shape. In September, a five-color dragon is expected to fully appear. — Xinhua
