Enso Quail
by Casey Shannon

This is my mini art on display at the gallery. It is a lovely brush painting of a little quail sitting among holiday foliage of an 'enso'. The image is 6 x 6 and framed in a gorgeous red wood frame.


The  Ensō is one of the most prevalent images of Zen Art, and it has become a symbol of  the clean and strong Japanese aesthetic. The ensō is an expression of the mind of the artist who brushes it. As a symbol, the circle expresses the totality of our being. The circle points to the most vital aspect of our essence -- it's ultimate wholeness. The ensō symbolizes enlightenment, power, and the universe itself. It is a direct expression of thusness or this-moment-as-it-is. Ensō  is considered to be one of the most profound subjects in zenga (Zen inspired painting).
