「午空いく〜うまくいく〜」
「午」に乗っているのは、琵琶を弾く弁財天様です。
弁財天は学問と芸術の神様です。
 何事も「午(うま)空(くう)いく」〜うまくいきますように。
雨上がりの七色の虹の上を午に乗った弁財天が駈けて行く様を描きました。


"午空いく~UMAKUIKU~ (go smoothly)"
Benzaiten plays the biwa (Chinese lute) while riding a "uma" (horse). Benzaiten is the god of learning and the arts. Everything will "*午 (UMA) 空 (KUU) IKU" (go smoothly).
May everything go smoothly. I drew Benzaiten riding a horse and galloping in the sky over a seven colored rainbow after the rain has lifted.

* In Japanese "午" is pronounced UMA, while the on-yomi pronunciation of "空" is KUU.
Combining these yields the play on words UMA(午)KUU(空)-IKU, or "go smoothly."


★The zodiac was introduced to Japan from ancient China. The zodiac counts "years" to represent Jupiter's location (position in the sky) during its orbit of one rotation around the sun every 12 years. 12 different animals symbolize each year sequentially, and it is repeated in a 12 year cycle. In Japan, the zodiac is called Eto, and at the beginning of the year we consider the good meanings associated with each animal for the year. 2019 is the year of the boar. Incidentally, the artist Nishi Yuu was born in the year of the money .
