Title Information


This is a beautiful twilight landscape. If you look closely, you will see the figure of small birds sitting on the branches of the silhouetted naked tree in the foreground. Daybreak is moments away, and the birds begin to sing into the early morning.

This is painted on special rice paper with a silk matting/border. Painted with special Chinese black ink and water color.

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.

Gary's random little things about China:

Where's my fortune cookie?

So after traveling to China, you have just finished your first meal in a real Chinese restaurant.
But the bill comes, and the waiter forgot to bring everyone their fortune cookies!
Well, actually not...
You see, fortune cookies did not come from China (at least not directly).
One legend has it in the late 1800s or early 1900s, a Chinese man running a noodle making shop in San Francisco accidentally mixed a bunch of sugar in his dough, and didn't want to waste it. So he made cookies and stuck papers with people's fortunes on them as a novelty.
In the end, it's really the Chinese visitors to America that are confused when the waiter brings them a blob of sugary noodle dough with a piece of paper stuck in it.
