What does this mean?

Hello Rhonda,
Thank you again for your appraisal inquiries with Mearto. The item presented appears to be an ink painting of Chinese calligraphy. Unfortunately, I am unable to fully translate the inscription. However, it appears to partially read "ten thousand years," which is a common phrase in East Asian cultures for "wishing you a long life." Here is a Wikipedia page relating to the phrase - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ten_thousand_years
The estimate provided is based on recent auction estimates and results of other comparable calligraphy paintings, dating to the 20th century. The estimate is contingent on a full condition report. Please note asking or dealer prices may vary. Thank you and please take care.
