n this piece I am using shades of off-white. I want to return the piece to calm from the chaos of the colours. I want to create order and a sense of peace. Like my daily meditation ‘enso’ ink drawings, which are calligraphied circles on white paper, I decide that the circle on this painting will be a deep indigo, nearly black against the whites. The final result is a simple dark circle on white; the focus in one’s mind’s eye on the balancing of life between chaos and order.
