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).

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.

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.

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."

Desire / Longing / Craving

China
Japan yoku
Desire / Longing / Craving Wall Scroll

慾 means desire, longing, appetite, wish, covetousness, greed, passion, desire, avarice, and craving.

慾 is universal in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and Korean Hanja.

The context in which this character is used, determines whether the meaning is good or bad. As a single character on a wall scroll, you get to decide what the definition is to you (hopefully more toward desire than greed).


Japanese DesirePlease note that Japanese use a simplified version of this character - it also happens to be the same simplification used in mainland China. Click on the character to the right if you want the Japanese/Simplified version of desire.

Longing for Lover

China sī liàn
Longing for Lover Wall Scroll

思戀 is a term used for when you miss a lover. It suggests that you are separated (not by choice) and have longing for each other. It's a strong feeling of missing your lover.

Lonely

China gū dú
Japan ko doku
Lonely Wall Scroll

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

This 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.

One Day Seems Like 1000 Years

China yí rì qiān qiū
Japan ichi jitsu sen shuu
One Day Seems Like 1000 Years Wall Scroll

一日千秋 is a Japanese and Chinese proverb about missing someone.

This is often used to express how hard it is to wait for someone's return, or to be away from someone.

Some will translate this as, "one day feels like a very long time," or "waiting for someone (something) is hard."

You might see this romanized as a single word, Ichijitsusenshuu, or as "Ichijitsu Senshuu" from Japanese.
If you break down the characters one-by-one, we get:
一 = one / a
日 = day / sun (can also represent time, or a date)
千 = 1000 / a thousand
秋 = autumn / fall

Together, 千秋 can mean, "autumn comes thousand times" (or 1000 years). It can also be read as 1000 periods of time.
However you literally read this, it relays the idea of heartache as you wait for someone that you miss.

Missing / Yearning

I miss you
Japan koishi garu
Missing / Yearning Wall Scroll

戀しがる is the most common Japanese verb for missing someone or yearning for someone (it could also be missing a place).

戀しがる is the shortest way to say, "I miss you" or "I yearn for you" in Japanese.

Breaking down the characters:
恋し (koishi) yearned for; longed for; missed (acts as an adjective in Japanese).
がる (garu) to feel, behavior (this represents emotion, and turns the whole word into a verb in Japanese).


Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

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.

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.
