This is a beautiful and very large landscape painting. It features a rising sun, a waterfall, and many lush trees.
The result is a simply stunning waterfall landscape painting. Vivid colors great your eyes from everywhere you look on this painting
The title is 旭日东升 源远流长, which means, "Rising Sun, Long History."
The other characters, 戊子年, indicate that this was painted in 2008.
I can't read all of the signature chop, but the surname is 李 which romanizes as Li or Lee (same surname as Bruce Lee). I just can't figure out the given name on that chop, and I bought this painting so many years ago that I can't remember who the artist was.
Please do note that since I don't have much artist information, I have priced this at about half what it should be. Also, please carefully look at the size. This is a very wide painting, and will cost you a pretty penny to frame it. The results will be worth it, but the framing will certainly cost more than the painting. It will look great behind a sofa.

Gary's random little things about China:
So after traveling to China, you have just finished your first meal in a real Chinese restaurant.
But the bill comes, and the waiter forgot to bring everyone their fortune cookies!
Well, actually not...
You see, fortune cookies did not come from China (at least not directly).
One legend has it in the late 1800s or early 1900s, a Chinese man running a noodle making shop in San Francisco accidentally mixed a bunch of sugar in his dough, and didn't want to waste it. So he made cookies and stuck papers with people's fortunes on them as a novelty.
In the end, it's really the Chinese visitors to America that are confused when the waiter brings them a blob of sugary noodle dough with a piece of paper stuck in it.
