This is an ink painting. Ink paintings can make an effect of reserved feelings. The idea of yearning is clearly expressed through this painting. With the new leaves budding here and there, spring is approaching. The black and white background demonstrates a relatively reserved sentiments of the speaker as well as his loneliness without his lover. In spite of this, the strong and steady trunk stands for his enduring love which tries to expand little by little into the empty background.
A branch sprouts from the side of the painting. It stands out in the center of the painting to represent the extending love from the speaker. At the tip of the branch, there are a lot of beans and they wait for the lover to pick them up and keep in the pouch to appreciate and cherish.
