Strawberry Violet


Circles are symbols. Connectedness. Infinity. Even enlightenment. In the zen of zen-ness sipping tea and eating sweet cake is to be recommended when you are on the path. Where I come from we know this is a way. For all the hoopla and hoorah you may perceive of us. Give me fifteen minutes in my favorite cafe with a friend, a colleague, a client... problem is solved, ideas abound, project gets off the ground. A moment of contemplation. A petit conversation. A," hi how's your momma doing? ". Deals made and done. Business and fun. Circles circling. Doing what we do, while eating sweet cake and tea. Enso in conclusion...back to say this, when you see my paintings of round, sit down, have a cup, taste a bite of the cake. We must all feed the well. Circle your circle right over here. The painting is to share. To pass on a petit piece of zen. By the way...How's your momma and them?
