Story Behind the Painting

This Chinese oil painting titled "Old City of Shanghai" is 20x16". This limited edition paper print is available 3/4 size, 15x12". The scene is of the Yuyuan Garden Old City at the end of the Yuyuan Tourist Mart. I believe with the second floor restaurant on the left where I had dinner at the same place President Bill Clinton had once visited. I didn't actually get to go in the full garden area on my trip in July 2013, but am going back next week - so hope to be able to spend more time. I love the vibrant reds of the old buildings, especially with green and gold accents - not a color scheme I typically get to paint when doing cityscapes!
