I went back to my hometown earlier this year, and it is a rural Chinese village. There are many hens and chicks there. They inspired me to paint. They are beautiful animals that represent prosperous life in Chinese culture.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to its location, this painting will ship from the artist's studio in China un-stretched and rolled in a tube. The detail image is just to give a sense of how the work will look as a finished piece.
