Traditional Chinese Painting.
After returning from Nanning in China attending Russell and Debra's wedding, I negotiated to have this beautiful painting glued onto a backing sheet of mulbery paper.
This is a traditional way of making the painting stronger. Debra's cousin is a famous traditional painter in her province and lives away from home during the year painting for his agent in Bejing. We are so lucky to have this painting for exhibition in our Homeprint Gallery as he told me he is the only painter from his province with work held in the Chinese National Art gallery!
