Reason for discount: This painting has some vivid paper lines. These are really just part of the texture of the handmade paper (left over grid marks from the paper-making screen). I usually let these go if it's a minor bit of texture. However, these are more vivid, almost-white lines in the painting. As the artist's brush went over the paper, these lines were slightly-recessed, and did not get much paint from the brush.

Gary's random little things about China:
If you come to China, save your small change...
In Beijing, the government recently passed a law against charging money for using a public toilet.
However, in other cities and towns around China, expect to pay between 2-5 mao (about 3-5 cents) for the use.
Bring your own toilet paper, or expect to pay 5 mao for a small pack of tissue as you enter.
In my opinion, the best public toilet in all of China is at Tian'anmen Square.
This public restroom is not only clean, but also features its own gift shop.
