Comments and Notations

In a recent workshop I was using my scroll Deep Samadhi as an example of how to make a scroll. Someone asked me, “Do you experience samadhi when you do the artwork”. My answer was, ” I try”. Much of the artwork is done after morning meditation and I take many of the words from the reading I do in the morning which may be imbued with my state of mind. Then, there is the chirping bird series, a playful embrace to the wonderful birds that wake me in the morning.

* Todatsu – Is a Japanese word that I took from a reading of Katagiri Roshi’s book, Each Moment is the Universe, which explores the Time/Being concept of Dogen’s. I was intrigued by his explanation because many times in Buddhist texts non duality is posited but this word describes it as non separation and further implies no obstruction.

** Empty Brush – This is a series that I started with what was left of ink that I had ground for specific artwork. I would take the left over ink and put it on paper and then keep adding to it. When it gets to a certain point, I will sometimes add something – but it is mainly just abstract lines.
