Weekly Challenge #205

Chinese New Year.  Thursday, February 19, 2015 marks the beginning of the lunar new year.





Legend has it that in ancient times, Buddha asked all the animals to meet him on Chinese New Year. Twelve came, and Buddha named a year after each one. He announced that the people born in each animal's year would have some of that animal's personality. Those born in sheep years are often artistic, charming, sensitive, and sweet. It is known as the most creative sign in the Chinese zodiac.

  3. Thanks for sharing your research on the sign of the sheep in the Chinese zodiac. It's even more fitting that Laura chose this for this week's challenge. Your tile is the perfect combination of abstract and representational---IMHO. Happy Lunar New Year!
