is celebrated in late January or early February,
based on a lunar calendar. I confess, I don't
comprehend the calculations, and I found
conflicting information on the internet as to
what date this year's celebration begins.
According to Wikipedia, it is January 31 this year.
2014 is the Year of the Horse.
Above, a post card created for mail art.
Gesso over scrap cardboard- 4" x 6".
I drew on the dry gesso, then
inked with Sharpie marker. Watercolor was
applied, then highlighter in pink and orange
(in the flower petals) along with colored pencil
and gold marker. Red and gold are the colors
considered to be good luck...
