Enso painting process
#alexaeisner
Sound clip: Cochrane McMillan

“Usually, a person draws the ensō in one fluid, expressive stroke. When drawn according to the sōsho (cursive) style of Japanese calligraphy, the brushstroke is especially swift. Once the ensō is made, one does not change it. It evidences the character of its creator and the context of its creation in a brief, continuous period of time. Drawing ensō is a spiritual practice.”

“It is hand-drawn in one uninhibited brushstroke to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create.”

This enso on glass became part of a commissioned painting.
