One of the artists of the Xiao Meng Asian Art Gallery

Chen Wei-Ling puts the finishing touch signature
on the beautiful Asian Artwork that
she and her husband created for me.

This hand-painted artwork is from the

Xiao Meng Asian Art Collection

The artists of this collection are actually a married couple who travel around China together looking for subjects to paint. Their real names are Chen Yong Ping and Chen Wei Ling but they sign all of their work under the single pen name Xiao Meng.

They work as a team on most of these paintings. One of them does the background and the other will handle the detail work on each painting.

The artists take great pride in the fact that they have developed their own unique painting style which they call "hazy painting" (this is roughly translated - it sounds better in Chinese).

They use a combination of "freehand style" and "elaborate style" in their paintings. The background is done using broad fast strokes and spray with very thin paint. The foreground (cranes) are done with a lot of detail using a delicate technique with a very fine brush.

Gary's random little things about China:

Are you SURE?

You can search long and hard, in every drugstore and sundries market in China, and you will not find underarm deodorant for sale anywhere.
After traveling all over China, I know this to be true everywhere in China except Hong Kong.

If you ask a Chinese person why there is no deodorant for sale, they will tell you plainly, "Chinese people do not smell bad".

My reply is, "Have you never been on a crowded bus in the summer?"
