Zen Mondays are a weekly feature inspired by my Japanese language (日本語) and Japanese ink painting (水墨画) learning journey, published here on my site since 2017.
Each post features a recent brush pen drawing or painting accompanied by one Japanese word, paired with one photograph from my travel records. Nothing else.
Some of the drawings shared on zen Mondays have been selected for the edition “One Moment, One Drawing”, first published in December 2018 (see more details of the edition here). You can find more of my daily art and background to zen Monday posts on instagram (follow here).

- A lofty goal requires continuous stretching.
- Shrouded in clouds, the view from a mountain hut.
- Drop by drop to the infinity of a summer alpine meadow.
- The chillness of feather-preening in the morning sun.
- The distant sound of summer thunder, gilded in blue.
- Stealthily shooting up to the sky, admiring fresh bamboo.
- Crossing the skies above water lily blossoms.
