Title Information

túPainting / Picture

The Chinese title of this piece alludes to an old Chinese philosophy.

This philosophy tells that if three people meet, on of them becomes the teacher, and the other two become the students. There is a deeper suggestion that no matter how much knowledge you might have, you can always learn from others, and therefore you should be more humble than arrogant, since you don't actually know everything.

In the painting, we see three cranes, and perhaps the one on the left is the teacher, and the other two are the students. But eventually, all will share their knowledge.

This is painted on special xuan paper (rice paper) with then mounted with a silk border.
Shipped to you in ready-to-frame condition.

One of the artists of the Xiao Meng Asian Art Gallery

Chen Wei-Ling puts the finishing touch signature
on the beautiful Asian Artwork that
she and her husband created for me.

This hand-painted artwork is from the

Xiao Meng Asian Art Collection

The artists of this collection are actually a married couple who travel around China together looking for subjects to paint. Their real names are Chen Yong Ping and Chen Wei Ling but they sign all of their work under the single pen name Xiao Meng.

They work as a team on most of these paintings. One of them does the background and the other will handle the detail work on each painting.

The artists take great pride in the fact that they have developed their own unique painting style which they call "hazy painting" (this is roughly translated - it sounds better in Chinese).

They use a combination of "freehand style" and "elaborate style" in their paintings. The background is done using broad fast strokes and spray with very thin paint. The foreground (cranes) are done with a lot of detail using a delicate technique with a very fine brush.
