Every original hand painted artwork is one of a kind. The picture you see was taken from very first original piece I hand-painted. There are enlarged pictures from partial of the painting for you to have a closer look. If you are interested, please ask for enlarged partial. This painting is the most classic one among small size pieces. After this painting being showed to the public in China, comparing to other small size paintings, this piece was requested the most by art lovers, collectors, auction houses and different Chinese media.

In Chinese Gong-bi painting, we use basic composition and apply different color Gong-bi painting technique and more changes base on request from collectors. So, one composition can be painted multiple times with changes based on the different request. Collectors could request add one flower, or put butterfly, or more leaves, different colors, and anything they want to be included in the painting. I know this is different than western painting. However according to Chinese Gong-bi painting, each such painting is original and it is one of its kind. This has been applied thousands of years ago when ancient painting artist painted their artwork, they use basic composition and work on the painting base on the request. There will be lots of changes in one basic composition, like details, the color, painting technique and etc.
