Chuan Kung Shakya artist, Oil on canvas.

Zen painting is free, effortless, natural painting. There is no planning, thought, or struggle. When one is engaged with Zen painting, there is no painter and no thing being painted; the painter and the painted are one. D.T. Suzuki describes it similarly, "The secret is to become the plant itself..." That is just so.

Beautiful things are happening!
Eureka! Wonderful things are happening!
Delightful surprises abounding!
Abundant Joy is my resting place.

Chuan Kung Shakya's dharma is art; enjoy her dharma offering. enjoy these beauties of Spring.
