Talking about Mantis by Chance

I started to paint mantis by chance in 2007. I fed a mantis as a pet. I stayed with the mantis everyday, took it for a walk. I had great fun, but my friends laughed at me.
In fact, many classics have stemmed from mantis since ancient times. Of course, I can take the mantis for a walk if I can take a dog for a walk, which may sound more elegant and romantic.

Talking about Mantis by Chance

I started to paint mantis by chance in 2007. I fed a mantis as a pet. I stayed with the mantis everyday, took it for a walk. I had great fun, but my friends laughed at me.
In fact, many classics have stemmed from mantis since ancient times. Of course, I can take the mantis for a walk if I can take a dog for a walk, which may sound more elegant and romantic.
I will develop a friendship with the mantis amid walking. Mantis is sneered due to prejudice even in nowadays, which is so undeserved.
A mantis that tries to stop a chariot is courageous, a mantis stalks the cicada in order to survive, the oriole behind it just shows an ecological balance, in which mantis may be another image. If life can be passed on, it will indicate a perpetual value.
I read a story about mantis and a Japanese person who wrote the story, which remains fresh in my memory.
In the story, he mentioned that he felt wronged at school during his childhood, but he couldn’t tell his parents. When he was very painful, he met with a mantis on his way home. He poured out his grievance to the mantis, and the mantis looked at him and listened carefully his last sigh. It seemed that he met with a savior that liberated him from pain.
The same mantis has different stories in different countries and regions, and contains different implied meanings.
However, mantis is still mantis, it is weird but cute.
I caught the worm, fed it, walked it, took photos and painted for it. Mantis became the theme of my life, and I was busy with it. Also, I finished some works about mantis.

不期而遇话蟷螂

2007年,一个偶然的契机,我开始画螳螂了。还养了一只螳螂,朝夕相处,经常带出去兜圈散步,可谓乐在其中,却也成了朋友们的笑话。
其实,自古螳螂多经典。可以溜狗,当然也可以溜螳螂啦,也许更儒雅风流些。
溜螳螂也会溜出感情的。一些偏见弄得螳螂至今还抬不起头来,想起来也很冤枉。
如果说螳螂挡车其勇可嘉,如果说螳螂捕蝉是为了生存,黄雀在后也只是生态平衡的一种现象而已,螳螂可能又是另外一种形象。如果说生命可以传递的话,更有一种永恒的价值。
当时还看到一篇日本人写的自己与螳螂的故事至今还记忆犹新。
他说自己童年的时候,在学校受了很多委屈又不能对父母说。这种极度痛苦的时候,他在放学路上遇到了一只螳螂。他开始向螳螂倾叙自己内心的委屈,螳螂一动不动地望着自己听完了自己最后一声叹息。他真的像是遇到了救星,从痛苦中得到了解脱。
不同的国度,不同的地区,同样的螳螂却会有不同的故事,不同的寓意。
但螳螂还是螳螂,怪怪的,很可爱。
抓虫喂食,散步兜圈,摄影写生,一时间螳螂成了我生活中的主旋律,忙得不亦乐乎,也留下了一批螳螂的作品。
