The artist and I meet in her home for Chinese tea
and discussions of Western and Easter Philosophy
This work was done in Beijing, China by Zhang Xiuzhen whose pen name is "San Yang".
She is a rather famous artist in northern China and has been painting since 1958.
Her work has been seen in many international exhibitions around the world over the last decade.
This is known as "free-hand style" painting.
You may recognize this artist for her work on our entire series of philosophy artwork. She also does other styles of work, and we decided to present some of them here in our gallery.
Painted with watercolor and special Chinese ink on xuan paper (rice paper). Then mounted to a handmade silk brocade wall scroll in our workshop.

Gary's random little things about China:
If you order Peking Roast Duck, you should do so only in Beijing, China (anywhere else, it's just not the same).
A hot tip: Always ask how long it will take before the duck is served.
If they tell you any timeframe less than 30 minutes, change your mind and order the Kung Pao Chicken (Gong Bao Ji Ding) instead.
The reason: If they can serve Beijing Roast Duck in less than 30 minutes, that means you are getting "pre-cooked" duck.
If you have to "duck the duck", next time look for a restaurant with ducks hanging over an open wood fire.
