Todays colour is Orange

Year of the Horse
I know it is really year of the Ox. And although I did the calligraphy I can't remember what this character means. I used "Quinacridone Burnt Orange" acrylic paint on the masking tape and sanded it and put some "Nickol Azo Gold" on after, the outer frame is walnut ink.
