Tangerines and oranges are one of these auspicious Chinese New Year symbols.
Chinese is associating the gift of orange and tangerine as having an abundance of happiness and prosperity.
The bright orange color of the fruits also symbolizes 'gold', hence it has an auspicious meaning to bring in good luck and wealth.
As kids, we present 2 oranges to the adults as good wishes and the adults in turn give us little red packets containing cash. So you can see why oranges are always welcome in my corner.

Susan was born and raised in Singapore and currently resides in Arizona with her husband and four wonderful dogs. Susan's Chinese name is 吴 思 宇 (Goh/Wu Si Yi) literately means thinking of the universe or cosmos thinker. Susan believes that painting does wonders to soul - like the 6th element. Art brings out the umami of life just like salt brings out the favor in food. For most of her life, she was caught up in the fast paced City-State lifestyle of her home in Singapore. Growing up in a era where the priority is a stable income, "Art" was indeed a rate word even in dreams. Life is kind and grace her with a second chance and she celebrates life with color and expression. Inspired by her ideas and things around her she transfers them to the substrate adding her own interpretation to it. When asked about her goal, Susan says: ' Her vision is to share the beauty of art with the world. She believe that art brings people together regardless of race, language or religion - Art is a universal language spoken from the heart with the stroke of a brush and the splash of paint. Susan welcomes you to live in the moment with her for yesterday is gone and tomorrow is not here. susangohfineart.com
