Can somebody help translate Chinese characters from a painting into English?

It’s from a painting we have now, supposedly it’s from China.

It’s a lovely painting:

There’s a stamp at the bottom:

If anyone knows any websites I can try, that could also be helpful. I’ve tried a few but these characters are too complex for most of the stroke recognizers!

Thank you!

and they are versed in a kinda classical way, also without punctuation, very hard to translate…and seems there are some chinese transliteration of english names in it…..???

lterally it reads:

lu jian ou bo (a transliterated english name?) lao ren (old man) ? (unrecognizable) hua (flower) yu (fish) ting (pavillion) ge (another kind of pavillion..) she (set up) se (color, all kinds of) quan (all) shi (teacher, master) zhao bo ju (a chinese name) ou zai (occassionally being) fang zhong (inside the room) shu zhai (the study, room) bei lin (back facing) si yu shen he (seems that it goes with the spirit).

then some space, then:

wu (black) mu (eye) shan zhong ren (the mountain person) wang ? (a name, but last character not recognizable)

can’t tell what stamp says.
