Learn how the name Summer is written in Chinese and Japanese. Decorate your home with a cool wall scroll that says Summer.
春夏秋冬 is one way to express "The Four Seasons " or "All Year Round ".
The characters here represent Spring, Summer, Autumn (Fall) and Winter.
夏 is the word/character used to describe the Summer season in Chinese, Korean and Japanese.
If your name is Summer, I like this character better than transliterating a few characters together to make something that sounds like "summer".
Like a moth to the flame
This is a Japanese proverb that means rushing to one's doom.
The literal meaning is, "Summer insects flying into the flame" which is like the English idiom, "Like a moth to a flame".
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
