Chinese New Year is soon upon us. I’m a bit bloody sad The Year of The Monkey has flown by so quickly because it’s been one of great inspiration and change; this monkey really got out to swing through the jungle! But it’s out with the monkey, in with the cock and time to stop the bull. Pardon the expressions.

Goodbye Monkey!
The Circle of Animals, Ai WeiWei’s Golden Horoscope Sculptures were one of my art highlights of 2015. I made a special trip to the Portland Museum of Art

According to the Chinese Horoscope, people born in Rooster years have “many excellent characteristics, such as being honest, bright, communicative and ambitious. Most of them are born pretty or handsome, and prefer to dress up. In daily life, they seldom rely on others. However, they might be enthusiastic about something quickly, but soon be impassive. Thus, they need to have enough faiths and patience to insist on one thing”. Sounds like Rooster girls aren’t happy with just one lipstick.

For all the Roosters, and the rest of us that like to dress up (our faces), there’s lots of lovely goodies around in honour of this new year. No reason not to be a beautiful chicken. But please remember to stay away from rats!
