    I found the painting, but apart from the name, there's no artist attributed to it, just from the 'Dafen oil painting village, Shenzhen'.

    A good rendition Pat.

    This is too good, Pat. You must be part balmy. Neat stuff, creating super romantic images -- so much is about neat subjects filled with color, isn't it.

    That's what art's about, isn't it -- at some point it's about the relationship between the art and the viewer, sort of like speed dating. (D Akey)

    Scroll down for a large pic. Also to see the functional level this painting is -- shows it in context over a sofa. Probably do that with all the paintings they're selling at this website.

    I too found several instances of this painting around the web in print shops, and there was no artist to which it was attributed. They are just selling graphics to hang on a wall and apparently are looking at it as color accents to interior decoration and theme perhaps for like a child's room.

    Says a lot about how interior designers look at art -- as color accents and chatskas to fill a blank wall. I would guess this painting came out of a sweat shop kind of affair owing to the anonymity.

    It was the opposite for quick painting way back in the days of my youth, when low cost paintings were being generated by low overhead companies locally. China's doing a lot of that now. But then, they actually went to the bother to come up with invented names for lines of paintings done in a particular style, to give it the feel of Art because that's what paintings had -- a couple flowers and a big old signature. Or a generic street scene and a big old signature. Or a hillside with a tree, and a big old signature. And the name was like a line of paintings that many people could paint under that went through that company.

    I guess the signature isn't a detail worth the bother when it comes to sales, because if signatures sold paintings they would put them in. So this one's anonymous, I suppose.

    All the websites call it "Maternal Wisdom" -- and my guess is that some would buy it based on the title alone.
