Close up view of the flower artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll
This artwork has a very classic look. It is painted on tan xuan paper with embedded gold flecks. It was then mounted as a handmade crisp white silk brocade wall scroll in our workshop.
This piece was painted by Lin Yun who lives in a village near Jinan in the Shandong Province of Northern China.

Gary's random little things about China:
So after traveling to China, you have just finished your first meal in a real Chinese restaurant.
But the bill comes, and the waiter forgot to bring everyone their fortune cookies!
Well, actually not...
You see, fortune cookies did not come from China (at least not directly).
One legend has it in the late 1800s or early 1900s, a Chinese man running a noodle making shop in San Francisco accidentally mixed a bunch of sugar in his dough, and didn't want to waste it. So he made cookies and stuck papers with people's fortunes on them as a novelty.
In the end, it's really the Chinese visitors to America that are confused when the waiter brings them a blob of sugary noodle dough with a piece of paper stuck in it.
