Happy New Year! I wish you all have a great 2013!
This is my new artwork showing a child with a big fish. This is a typical image for the good luck of the Chinese New Year. When Chinese get together for the Chinese New Year’s Eve dinner, we like to have dishes symbolize good luck and good fortune. “Fish” pronounces the same as “surplus” in Chinese. That’s why we will have fish at the dinner and will intensionally save some for the next day, which obviously also means we are having surplus for the new year.
And now, I wish you all have surpluses every year.
This is my recent artwork. An ink drawing inspired from a postcard I bought in my last trip to Hong Kong. The postcard illustrates the scene of Des Voeux Road Central in Hong Kong. Des Voeux Road Central locates at a busy commercial district on Hong Kong Island with bank headquarters, designer shops, luxurious shopping centers, etc. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Des_Voeux_Road Look! The numerious commercial signs along the street on the postcard tell us that Hong Kong was already very busy in the late 1940s.
We had a nice vacation in Hong Kong back in October. Before we flew, I cleaned up my working table, packed my drawing pens and tools. How exciting my wife and me were when we were landing. And, now, I’m back. Back to work.
