The report of the 19 th National Congress of the Communist Party of China put forward: “Cultural self-confidence.” The manifesto of this era also points out that culture is the soul of a country and a nation. Prosperity of culture means prosperity of the country, and a strong culture means a strong nation. Without a high degree of cultural confidence and cultural prosperity, there would be no great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. Culture is the backbone and soul of a nation. It creates the soul and character of a country and a nation. A nation can exist in the world only if it has cultural self-confidence. Only when the people have faith can the country have strength and the nation have hope. Cultural self-confidence is the most important factor contributing to these goals.

On the scene of the Spring Festival Gala in Anhui Province in 2020, there were crowds of people, and audiences gathered from all over the country, surging like the spring tide. The Spring Festival Evening in the countryside is the watch of the countryside! Magpies are on the branches! Hundreds of magpies are singing and flying from one tree to another in droves. Spring is coming!

Song Ping has been fond of painting for many years. After graduating from college, she runs a shoe store in Qingyang County, where she is engaged in fine arts and painting. In her paintings, she sought her own happiness. Painting has become an important part of her life, showing her life and praising her life, which is the direction of her life. Her works have participated in various art exhibitions held by the art circles of the whole province for many times and won awards.
Song Ping is lucky because her spirit touched God. She received help and support from all walks of life. In 2018, Song Ping Art Exhibition appeared in the 6th Cuigang Art Festival, and exhibited with many famous painters. “Bright Sun-Song Ping Art Exhibition” appeared in the 2020 Anhui Rural Spring Festival Evening! Stunning, sensational painting!
Song Ping was born with great love for colorful nature. She thought: Every grass, tree, flower, bird, fish and insect all have “spirituality”.
Song Ping said with affections: I was born in Qingyang County, a small county town under Jiuhua Mountain. I grew up drinking water from Jiuhua Mountain and Qingtong River. There are beautiful mountains and rivers here, with outstanding people. Countless poets, writers and landscape painters have come to China in ancient and modern times. This is the place where scholars, painters, bodhisattvas and immortals come out. Jin Qiaojue cultivated as a Bodhisattva in Jiuhua Mountain, and Lingyang County made Zhao Ziming immortal. Spiritual mountain and holy water have cultivated my sentiment and endowed me with the nature of painting.
Professor Hu Shiping, Vice Chairman of Anhui Oil Painting Society, commented on the spot: Song Ping loves life, her paintings are full of strong life breath, the picture is simple, the color and composition show the new concept of art for contemporary young people, and convey to everyone the enjoyment of beauty …
Ma Guangshui, Chairman of Qingyang Federation of Literary and Art Circles, commented on the paintings of female painter Song Ping; “Her paintings are peculiar in conception, full of passion and unpredictable. With the help of imagination, they present a kind of charm, convey a kind of beautiful spirit and show unique beauty in this artistic conception.”
Song Ping, a female painter, said that she was lucky enough to hold a solo exhibition on the big stage of the Spring Festival Evening in 2020. In the future, she will work harder to create art, explore more exhibition forms, and create better works with more attractive forms and techniques, and live up to the spiritual mountain and holy water of Qingyang, the concern of her hometown elders, and the selfless guidance of her instructors.
Song Ping’s paintings are spiritual flowers bursting from the soil of self-life experience. The unadorned skills and language meet the rich human atmosphere, but they can give people an indescribable touch and enlightenment.
Yang Guoxin, vice chairman of Anhui Federation of Literary and Art Circles and chairman of Anhui Artists Association, thinks that Song Ping’s works have given him a great shock. She has not studied professional painting, but she has painted such contemporary and international works.
He hopes that Song Ping will be able to break through all tangible and intangible constraints, break through all the limited selves we think, and live a higher and better version of herself.
