This is one of my major projects for Chinese New Year 2012. The nine red canvas boards simulate red tile and the calligraphy is in gold leaf, with the pinyin directly below. 

Top row (left to right): Shu (forgiveness), Jen (patience), Hsiao (piety)

Middle row (left to right): P'ing (peace), Fu (happiness), Ming (destiny)

Bottom row (left to right) Chih (wisdom), Ying (courage) Shun (gentleness)
