After finishing the bamboo garden I painted pumpkins. Once I put bamboo garden and pumpkins together on the wall, I realized that I can make them into a series, four seasons of the year. Bamboo represents summer, pumpkin represents fall, all I need is one for spring and one for winter. Spring is straightforward, traditional cherry bloom, sakura flower will do. Winter takes me sometime to think about. At last I pick up the cracking frozen ice motif, pine motif and white bird swan as major subject.
I’m glad that they turn out as planned. I hang them on the wall in order of Summer, Winter/Spring, Fall. Spring and fall are usually put together in East Asia culture as we are well known farming civilization. For a famer, the most important seasons are spring (seeding) and fall (harvesting).
By the way, my signature in Spring sakura is upside down because I rotated the panel when I painted it. I painted it in the direction that is easier to reach. Then after putting the panel into frame, the signature appears to be upside down.
This set is available now via my Artfinder store. For this type of smaller hexagon panel, it would look good when you have multiple on the wall together. Similar to hexagon shelves, you are likely to have more than one unit of hexagon shelf on the wall to make a pattern. Of course, you can rearrange the sequence according to your preferences.
I hope you enjoy this set.
Merry Christmas ❤
