[Appreciation] There is a precarious stone and a large gorgeous gardenia on the top of the painting. The petals painted with thin lines in the shape of circles are swaying in the wind, full of thriving vitality. The slanting and sidelong banana leaves were painted to protect the gardenia on precarious stone. With shapes being applied to deliver an artistic conception, just a few touches can reflect profound connotations. Simple shapes and proper space layout form a unique state of mind, so fascinating.
