I am super excited to be invited to show at Fresh Paint Gallery in La Jolla! This is a professional gallery, not a ‘pay to play’ type of gallery that I often exhibit at. Not that there is anything wrong with paying the rent myself to exhibit my art. But being accepted in to a professional gallery is certainly a dream come true for all artists.
And in the process, I was challenged to create some new and unique works of art using the traditional tools of Asian brush painting – ink, rice paper and bamboo brushes – in a non-traditional style, which is the direction I am taking my painting.
Here is my painting “Zen Destiny.” The enso, or Zen circle, is not a character, it is simply a stroke of the brush. Here, the enso represents the vast emptiness of space.
