Hiding a Heron in the Moonlight, 2018

Ink on paper, 20×26″

This painting is part of a series called Breath Portraits. I sit in connection with my breath. I then pour ink on the paper and breathe it around the page. Working intuitively, connection to breath is at the heart of this work.

The title comes from a chant called Song of the Jewel Mirror Samadhi, which I chanted almost daily when I was living at Green Gulch Farm / Green Dragon Zen Temple on and off for 4 years.
