Thank you for reading another zen Monday.

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

We continue our walk through the Altstadthaus exhibition, started last week.

Today a second group of maple leaves, this time showcasing the full variety of colours within a single tree branch through the expression of monochrome ink. With brush or camera, capturing a maple tree through all seasons is a wonderful exercise. Here is last year’s gallery:

Have a wonderful start to your week!
