I would need to pay one of my translator/researchers to do this. It's probably a 30-minute job to decipher this very-cursive text, and come up with a basic translation.

If you want to do it, you can pay here:

I'll just hope it doesn't go beyond 30 minutes so I don't lose money on the project.

Here's the info that Ling Hua wrote about this for you with some graphics and info added by me (a team effort)...

From top to bottom:

Simplified: 長松三荡有清风 年 云堂
Traditional: 長鬆三蕩有清風 年 雲堂

長 Long, Extended
鬆 Pine
三 The number Three
蕩 to sweep away; to move; to shake
有 has, possesses, with
清 Clarity
風 Wind
年 Year
雲 Cloud
堂 hall, large room for a specific purpose, studio

The first seven characters describes a picture of pine tree branches moving gracefully along with the breeze.

長松 (chang2 song1), long pine
三荡 (san1 dang4), three swings
有 (you3), has
清风 (qing1 feng1), clear breeze

I'm not 100% sure about the last three characters. Because usually the artist will sign the year in Chinese way, but here only has the character for "year" but nothing else to show which year.

The last two look like what I wrote down, if so, it's likely to a name for the studio where the artist finished the painting.
