Kung Hei Fat Choy! As is my custom here at Feng Shui By Fishgirl, each Chinese New Year I feature the art of my dear friend Po Ping T’so Lo in Hong Kong. This year Po has deftly captured the Year of the Dog (maybe because the two adorable pups in the painting are portraits of her own pets). Gratitude to this wonderful artist and friend for giving me permission to publish her artwork.
Every cliche you hear about actual dogs– loyalty, honesty, doggedness, helpful and steadfast friend, playful nature, good appetite, intelligence, protective of loved ones, unconditional love– is true for people born under this sign, too.
Whatever you sign, may you find true love, true health, and true luck in the Year of the Dog!

Once again my artist friend Po Ping has captured the essence of 2013 Chinese New Year with her wonderful painting to help all my readers celebrate the Year of the Snake. Showing Po’s CNY paintings has beome a tradition at Feng Shui By Fishgirl.
Snake energy has lots to teach us if we let it. Slinky, clever, mysterious snake energy. Happy new year!
I had the great good fortune to visit Washington, DC last week to get my art fix for the season! This Chinese Zodiac (Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads) installation by China’s preeminent dissident/artist Ai Wei Wei is breathtaking, don’t you think? BTW to discover what your Chinese zodiac sign is click here.
The piece below is a temporary exhibit from Ai Wei Wei and I didn’t get the name of it but it was a very powerful installation. When viewed from above one can see it is a map of China.There were a chair and a table imbedded into the support beams. You felt oppressed as you walked under the beam energy and I believe that was the artist’s intention.
