Good Luck Paintings

Chinese New Year happens to fall on February 14th this year, the same day as Valentine's. We have a few things planned to help Grace celebrate the year of the tiger. The first of which was making good luck paintings to hang on our front door.

Grace copied the good luck characters provided in the wonderful book, "Moonbeams, Dumplings and Dragon Boats", using the Chinese brush painting kit that Meme and Pop gave her. She's always taken an interest in learning to draw and paint the characters of the Chinese language and this project was no exception.

And as you can see from the final photo she made more than just one. With so many doors in our home covered with good luck, there's no doubt that it's going to be a great year!
