Thank you for reading another zen Monday. ありがとうございました。

Every Monday is zen Monday, a weekly dose of zen in Japanese ink painting format, coupled with one Japanese word. Nothing else.

If you want to know more about the inspiration behind #zenmondays, you can request to follow my instagram account here. I share more artwork in process and the background to each post there.

New editions update: The second edition of “One Moment, One Drawing” will be available next week as planned. Pre-orders are still possible here.
