I was inspired by the beautiful love poem "Butterflies in love with flowers".
I have gotten a longtime traditional Chinese painting training since my age 5. I brought the energy and passion of brush works into this painting to express my feelings about the love story. If you would like to bring some Eastern elements to your house, this painting would be a good choice.

"Butterflies in love with flowers".
Orchids tear dews while asters in doleful misty grey
Silk curtains could not allay this cold
Pairing swallows take hasty leave
The moon could not know our parting grief
It shines till dawn its slanting light strayed into crimson windows
Western gales withered all green trees last night
Alone I ascended the tall tower
To search all the roads under the sky
How I wish to send you my darling a comforting message on ornate paper
Alas where would it go amid long mountain ranges and a boundless sea
