Mandarins

In my painting “Mandarins”, the characters for “mandarin (柑)” and the character for “gold
(金)”, though vastly different in meaning and in their written forms, are pronounced exactly
alike. Therefore, “Mandarins” depicts prosperity and wealth.

In “Leisurely Feeding”, the goldfishes or just the characters fish or fishes ( 魚) is often paired
with the word (餘) commonly used in New Year blessings, meaning “in excess” or “more than
needed”, have the same pronunciation.
