This features a tiny bird sitting among daffodils. What's more unique about this painting is the wonderful handmade paper that was used to create it. This xuan paper was made with coarse natural fibers and bits of husks and unbleached pulp pressed into the paper. This gives a very unique and ancient look to the whole piece.
I give this my highest recommendation, which means I will even pay for your return postage if you are not delighted, and I do mean DELIGHTED by the quality and beauty of this piece. I hand-selected this myself during my last trip to Jinan from several pieces offered by this artist - it is the best of the best!
As with all of our watercolor artwork, this is 100% Hand-painted.
The artist's name is (Chen Shi). He's from the Jinan area of Shandong Province in Northern China.

Gary's random little things about China:
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?"
