This beautiful painting features two Asian egrets amidst a pond full of lotus flowers and lilies.
The artist's title for this piece is 荷塘清趣 or "Hé Táng Qīng Qù"
For the translation:
Hé = Lotus
Táng = Pond
Qīng = Clear
Qù = Sentiment
Together, Qīng & Qù = Elegance
The rest of the characters, 辛卯年 秋月 立成畫, indicate this was painted in the Autumn of 2011 and signed Li-Cheng (the artist's given name). The artist's full name is Wang Li-Cheng. I only met him once, and don't have a lot of information about him. I can say he lives in Jinan City in the Shandong Province of Northern China. His artwork speaks for itself. I should head back to Jinan and get more.
