Enso Noble ~ Artist's Dream

This is an artist's dream! I recently sold this beautiful sumi scroll of mine called "Enso Noble' to a Tae Kwon Do group in NJ. They were having a huge celebration for their master teacher, sensei. They had their party last Friday and just sent me these pictures. What an honor to have my work hanging in their dojang. I love seeing where my work will live and how much they appreciate it!

Inside the enso is a mountain, three trees, and three dots. There is not really a profound particular significance to the three trees and the three dots. Other than the number three is a beautiful esthetic number which I use in my paintings a lot. A gathering of three (birds, trees, dots, etc.) denotes beauty and simplicity to me.  It is sacred. It is oneness. It also signifies wholeness to me. This directly relates to the significance of the enso which among other things also signifies wholeness. The enso is a profound symbol in Zen. Mountains are very strong and noble. Hence, the title. 'Enso Noble'.
