I am trying to identify these artist seal meaning, if anyone can help it would be much appreciated.I have tried researching this myself but to no avail
The seal says「萅」, which is one of the earlier forms of「春」(spring).
「春」(Mandarin Pinyin: chūn, spring) was originally constructed from simultaneously semantic and phonetic「屯」(tún, picture of a sprouting plant), and various other optionally present semantic components including「木」(picture of a tree),「屮・艸」(grass, plants, vegetation), and「日」(sun), inferring sun shining on newly sprouting vegetation > spring. The surviving glyph「春」is from an original combination of「艸・艹」,「日」, and「屯」.
In the above character,「艸」is split into two「屮」, which surround「日」, all on the left hand side.「屯」is the portion found on the right.
- The combination of「艸」and「日」here survives as a component in a few characters, e.g. the left hand side of「朝」.
Later on, the components were subject to various changes:
Both parts of「艸」migrated to the top,「屯」moved to the middle, and「日」moved to the bottom:
The last form above is the same as the image in the question.
Everything apart from「日」was graphically corrupted, leading on to the modern form:
