Chinese Brush Painting

The Chinese New Year is approaching and I had a request to design a greeting card for one of my neighbors. Since I'm already taking a class in CBP, I decided to attempt an ox, found a YouTube video to help and made dozens of practice tries. This is my final for now . . . and no, I didn't misspell New. In Chinese, the word for ox sounds like "new" so for the Year of the Ox, they are spelling New Niu, which is the English approximation of the Chinese word.


  1. Your ox looks great! Makes me crave a dumpling or an eggroll.
