This beautiful painting features two Asian egrets amidst a pond full of lotus flowers and lilies.
The artist's title for this piece is 荷塘情韻 or "Hé táng qíng yùn"
For the translation:
Hé = Lotus
Táng = Pond
Qīng = Sentiment / Affection
Yùn = Feeling (and in other context, Rhyme)
The rest of the characters 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.
