Zen Energy Enso

Kanji character for "Energy" is featured on this Sumi-e, Japanese style ink painting in color.

The enso is one of the deepest symbols in Japanese Zen: Enso represents the void, the Tao, the infinite, simple existence, impermanence, emptiness, enlightenment and the loss of self.

The Enso is painted with watercolor on textured Sumi paper and adhered to archival mat board. Substrate size 14"X 11"; image size 8"X8". Kanji character cut from art paper and adhered onto painted image.
