Year of the Horse

January 16th, 2014 · No Comments

January 31, 2014 is beginning of the Chinese New Year. This is the year of the wooden horse.  Wood symbolizes strength and green as in a new spring. The horse symbolizes good luck, leadership, good with hands, skillful with money yet reckless, too energetic and foolish. As in the old adage: “Fools rush in where wise men dare to tread”.

This is my homage to the combination of the Chinese New Year and St. Valentine’s Day.  Red symbolizes fire which drives away bad luck and evil spirits; hence fireworks for the New Year celebrations. In my vignette, I have included  my hand painted Cherry Blossoms on rice paper. They are officially of Japanese decent however, Japan briefly occupied parts of China in the early 20th Century. Japan planted many Cherry Blossom trees in China as a sign of friendship, alliance and new life. To me, Cherry Blossoms are beautiful and incredibly romantic. The very first sign a Spring. Obviously hearts and flowers are significant to Valentine’s Day as in love, romance and friendships.

I am hoping that my vignette will bring lots of luck, love and happiness for the new year! And here, I share it with you too!
