today in my remembrance of Thay (Thich Nhat Hanh), i contemplated his ensō art and calligraphy. i painted an ensō in the style of Thay to honor and remember him.
in ensō painting and practice, not only is the moment captured just as it is, but the spirit, style and practice of the artist/teacher is also revealed.
Thay had such a distinct style in his ensō painting. his strong practice of mindfulness, his calm, focused and steady energy is so apparent.
holding Thay with gratitude and reverence in my practice and heart.
