A small color painting based on a work by an unknown early Chinese artist as a way to learn from his style. “Amici memoriam” in the inscription is Latin for “in memory of an old friend” since I consider all past artists of China as my friends. Inscribed: “Every morning I enjoy ending my walk with an egg McMuffin.” The inscription is mine and not on the original.
