Painting is inspired by Zen energy in flowers and nature. The perfect co-existence of everything in nature with creation, destruction, peace, and violence as one.
Ensō (circle) is a sacred symbol in the Zen school of Buddhism and is one of the most common subjects of Japanese calligraphy. The creation of an ensō symbolizes a moment in time in the life of the artist when the mind is free to simply let the spirit create through the physical body. Ensō is an expression of individuality as expressed by variations in ink tones, brushstroke thickness, the shape of the circle, and even the positioning of the single point where the circle begins and ends. With many definitions available, each person is responsible to create their own definition of ensō.
