This is a good painting for a business man, as eight horses are a sign of success in Chinese culture.
The title is "Ba June Tu", which means, "Eight Beauties Picture". Along with that title, the rest of the Chinese characters include the artist's signature, a special way to express the year painted (2007) in Chinese characters.
The artist's name is (Xian Yun), from near Guilin in Southern China. He is a good friend of artist Ou-Yang Guo-De's sister in Guilin.
This is painted on xuan paper (rice paper) and mounted with a silk border at our workshop.

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.
