Circling the flexible state of being…
…this painting combines the elements of enso and love.
“Forever Yours” is an original painting using a red ink brush pen. It measures 8-1/2” x 11” and is on heavy stock, textured creamy colored paper.
I am inspired by the elegance and simplicity of japanese ‘sumi-e’ paintings.
Sumi-e attempts to capture the Chi or life spirit with just a few strokes of the brush.
A circle — known as “enso” in Japanese — universally implies completeness, all. A zen circle can also imply zero, sunyata, absolute, true reality, enlightenment, no beginning/no end in all phenomena, no symbol, the spread of Dharma as a turning wheel, harmony, and womb.
