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

Every Monday is zen Monday. Always a weekly dose of Japanese ink painting coupled with one photograph from my archives.

Zen Mondays will be taking a spring break in April, but I will still be shipping art orders, and painting more birds. Have you started looking for Mother’s Day gifts yet? The Tea House Diary packs another beautiful dose of inspiration, through another detail of Japanese culture.
