Lonely

China gū dú
Japan ko doku
Lonely Wall Scroll

孤獨 means lonely, solitude, loneliness, and lonesome.
In some context, it can mean reclusive, isolation, single or solo.

孤獨 is a Japanese word but not a good selection for a wall scroll.
In Chinese, this will relay a rather sad feeling to anyone who reads this calligraphy on your wall.


独The version shown to the left is the Traditional Chinese and ancient Japanese version. In modern Japan and China they often use a different more simplified version of the second character (as shown to the right). If you want this Japanese/Simplified version, please click on the character shown to the right instead of the button above.

Lonely Soul / Solitary

China xíng dān yǐng zhī
Lonely Soul / Solitary Wall Scroll

This Chinese idiom means "lonely soul" if you are a solitary person, or lost soul, this may be the title for you.

Lonely Soul / Lost Soul

China gū hún
Lonely Soul / Lost Soul Wall Scroll

孤魂 is a Chinese title that means, "lonely soul." In the context of being a soul without a mate or all alone, this can be translated as, "lost soul."

Alone / A Lone Person

Japan dokuji
Alone / A Lone Person Wall Scroll

This Japanese word means "alone" in the context of a person by himself/herself. This can be translated as individual; solo; on one's own; by oneself.


See Also:  I Miss You

Alone / A Lone Person

China dú zì yì rén
Alone / A Lone Person Wall Scroll

獨自一人 means "alone" in the context of a person by himself/herself.


See Also:  I Miss You

Alone with only your shadow for company

China qióng qióng jié lì xíng yǐng xiāng diào
Alone with only your shadow for company Wall Scroll

This proverb is about the state of being as alone as you possibly can be. It can be translated as, "Alone with only your shadow for comfort/company."


See Also:  I Miss You

I Miss You

China wǒ xiǎng nǐ
I Miss You Wall Scroll

我想你 is the Chinese way to say "I miss you." It is said in the same word order in both English and Chinese.

Miss You Forever

China yǒng yuǎn xiǎng niàn nǐ
Miss You Forever Wall Scroll

永遠想念你 is how to write "missing you forever" in Chinese.

The first two characters mean "forever" or "eternally."
The third and forth characters mean "missing" or "longing for."
The last character means "you."

This might suggest that you are missing someone whom you will never see again (depending on how you read it, or in what context it is used).

Hurt

ache / pain / sore / love fondly
China téng
Japan tou / uzuku
Hurt Wall Scroll

This can mean hurt, ache, pain or sore in Chinese and old Korean Hanja. It's also used to speak of the pain of love, and thus its definition also includes "love fondly." This also means ache, hurt, tingle, or pain in Japanese but is not often seen as a lone Kanji like this in Japanese.

Wisdom / Intelligence

China huì
Japan e / kei
Wisdom / Intelligence Wall Scroll

This single character can be translated as wisdom but it has more of an "intelligent" flavor. This can also mean cleverness or wit.

Japanese note: 慧 is understood in Japanese but seldom seen as a lone Kanji.

Lone Wolf

China dú láng
Lone Wolf Wall Scroll

獨狼 is literally "lone wolf" in Chinese.

Lone Wolf

Japan ippiki ookami
Lone Wolf Wall Scroll

一匹狼 is literally "lone wolf." It suggests you are a "loner" or a "self-reliant person." It can be taken with both positive and negative aspects.

Tranquil Midnight

China yōu jìng de wǔ yè
Tranquil Midnight Wall Scroll

幽靜的午夜 is a way to express the emotions that you might feel at midnight. Beyond peaceful, quiet or tranquil, there is an idea of being remote or lonesome, buried in the meaning of the first two characters.

All of our calligraphy wall scrolls are handmade.

When the calligrapher finishes creating your artwork, it is taken to my art mounting workshop in Beijing where a wall scroll is made by hand from a combination of silk, rice paper, and wood.
After we create your wall scroll, it takes at least two weeks for air mail delivery from Beijing to you.

Allow a few weeks for delivery. Rush service speeds it up by a week or two for $10!

When you select your calligraphy, you'll be taken to another page where you can choose various custom options.


A nice Chinese calligraphy wall scroll

The wall scroll that Sandy is holding in this picture is a "large size"
single-character wall scroll.
We also offer custom wall scrolls in small, medium, and an even-larger jumbo size.

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.

There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.

A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
