Could anyone help me identify this artist? It is on a silk ink painting. Thank you. My Chinese is not that good but usually, I get by with dictionaries. However, seal script is new for me. I found some good tips and resources here but still struggling. Top to bottom and right to left as I understand? An image of a red square artist seal on silk

    the left bottom one is a distorted character “印”, in seal script. the left component of the right bottom character looks like heart “心” 😺 Sep 10, 2022 at 14:51
  • Thank you. I will keep on exploring.
