Would you like to learn a little more about this style of painting? This essay at the Metropolitan isn't a bad place to start.
Seiko mentioned to me that it's an Earth Dog year:
The Year of Earth Dog begins Feb. 16, 2018 (Chinese New Year) and lasting to Feb. 4, 2019. The Dog is the eleventh in the 12-year cycle of Chinese zodiac sign and those born in the Dog years are People born in the Year of the Dog are usually independent, sincere, and loyal friends.
I'll be reaching out again around then, but it's never too soon to wish you all joy and peace for the new Year of the Dog.
