Happy New Years!

It’s the year of the tiger, so I got my pastels, inks, and watercolor out to celebrate.

In the Japanese tradition, it is celebrated along with the Western calender, and I have such fond memory of growing up and being surrounded by the festivities and overall goodwill and optimism around the New Years.

Tiger (tora)

Born 1998, 1986, 1974, 1962, 1950, 1938, 1926, 1914.

People born in the year of the Tiger are sensitive, stubborn, short-tempered, courageous, selfish and slightly mean … yet they are deep thinkers and are capable of great sympathy for those they are close to and love.  For more info click here.

Here’s a link to a lovely article about a craftsman, who makes wonderful clay bells for the new years.

Happy New Years!!
