The artist who created this work is named Jiang Feng. He graduated in the 1980's from the Beijing Central Institute of Fine Arts, and has since had a successful career as an artist. His art has been awarded many times in various shows and exhibitions, and he boasts that collectors from Taiwan, Japan, Singapore, Canada, and Hong Kong have purchased his work. So I suppose it is my job to introduce his work to the states.
Jiang Feng's style is somewhere between abstract and realistic but falls into neither category. It is simply his own style. I can tell from looking at his paintings that he does a lot of detail work, and then uses a bit of extra water to "run" the colors and create interesting patterns within the subjects.
He does not title his work, so you are left to your own imagination as to what each painting represents. But that should not be hard, as you can easily appreciate the beauty and subject of each one of his pieces.
The Chinese characters and red stamp that you see are the artist's signature.
This is painted on special xuan paper (rice paper) with a combination of Chinese black ink and watercolor. We then mounted the artwork with a silk border/matting. It will arrive at your door in a "ready-to-frame" condition.

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.
