Based on a painting by the modern Chinese artist Lu Yanshao (1909 – 1993). I very rarely base a work on something by a contemporary artist, but was taken by the similarity to my own Columbia River gorge. The number in the lower right corner is from my former inventory system.

With traditional Chinese paper backing.
