Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Every artist has his/her own specialist. Peony is the subject I paint most frequently. I received a lot of good comments and awards from peony related art work I painted. The first piece of this original painting is kept by a Chinese national temple.

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.

Symbols of authenticity
Standard will be legal name signature seal and signature included in the painting. Every painting will be customized for you. So I can include more sentence in the painting, including the annotation and two more seals - my artistic name seal and free seal. Those are free of charge.
The annotation contains Chinese Lunar year and artist real name in writing - Each painting is customized. The annotation will be changed based on the painting completion date.
Condition: What to expect an Original Chinese Painting
The painting is not mounted or framed. The painting is in excellent condition but I need to let you know below fact to avoid any misunderstanding:
The painting will be folded and securely sealed in water proofed protection. Because of the thinness of Shuan Paper, when you open the package, you will see some folds and hairline creases. Once the painting is mounted properly, the fold lines will be gone completely.
