萬古長青 - Remain fresh forever
癸酉初秋 - In the Beginning of Autumn of the Year of Water-Rooster (1993)
仰讀古詩豈不畏厳寒松柏有本性因以此圖 -
The old poem "Is it that they didn't fear the severe cold. Pines and cypresses are born with hard nature" I read, was the inspiration of this picture.
雄才於羊城 - Xiongcai in Yangcheng (nickname for Guangzhou)
時年八十又六 -At the age of 86 ( Actually, he was only 83 in 1993)
雄才所作 - Painted by Xiongcai

Everything looks perfect for a Li Xiongcai.

With regards,
