Happy New Year 2012!!
November and December were really crazy, so I had few blog posts. No promise about the new year.
My newest lamp is an upcycled lamp from a yard sale. I unassembled the lamp, tore off the paper, repainted the wood and on my handmade paper, painted 4 different Chinese symbols.
The next lamp in my series is bold, black Chinese symbols painted on white abaca hand made paper.
I chose and painted the symbols for destiny, happiness, harmony, and peace.
I feel these symbols are universal in meaning for the start of the new year.
