Lotus Pond - Sentimental Feelings

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.
