According to the Chinese Zodiac, the Year of 2024 is the Year of the Dragon, which begins on Feb 13, 2024. The Dragon is the fifth sign of the Chinese Zodiac, which consists of 12 Animal signs. The Dragon is a creature of myth and legend. In ancient China, the celestial Dragon represents an emperor and power. 

*Years of the Dragon: 1904,1916,1928,1940,1952,1964,1976,1988, 2000, 2012, 2014

Inscription: The inscription: "木龍三色賀甲子" (Wood Dragon, three colors, celebrate the new year) meaning Blessings for the Year of the wood Dragon(2024). Theme in the painting. The old plum tree trunk, featuring a dragon-head-like knob, and the motif of blossoming flowers beautifully express the arrival of spring, symbolizing renewal, beauty, and the flourishing of prosperity across the land. This narrative not only celebrates the symbolic year of the dragon but also reflects our shared aspirations for renewal and harmony.

*Long story short: I accidentally left all my brushes, ink, and colors at home as we arrived at the Arcadia Public Library 30 minutes before the show. Fortunately, a friend of mine found a bottle of Japanese ink, some brushes and watercolors in a nearby shopping center. I managed to paint the plum tree trunk with toilet tissue. Actually I like how it turned out.
