Surprised and befuddled, this is a black young rooster wakes up to a world full of colored eggs reflected in his plumage. Easter-egg hunt inspired Zen Chicken incorporates pastels in greyed out tones of matte gouache.

Zen Chicken drawings reflect my joy in gesturing ink onto paper and are a continuation of my 13 year practice of tai chi and 50 year practice of drawing. 

12 x 16 inch original ink and acryl-gouache painting on 140 lb. watercolor paper.
Signed by the artist with front signature chop and with full name and date on the back. Ships mounted in archival mat ready to pop into a 16 x 20 inch frame style of your choice.

The antelope brown ink diffuses into a warm gold when water is added. In this Zen Chicken with the Sea Horse Head the swirling curls repeat to create a rhythm of nature and art as the elements blend into a unique dynamic balance. The calligraphic strokes of the brown to gold ink contrast with the rubber stamped sea horse and decorative dots to create a conversation starter.  

The why of my Zen chicken flock is art history.  I am inspired by collage, asemic writing, cave art, and Dada.  In my creative process unexpected, unexplained contrasts are positioned as harmonies. 

The drawing measures 12 x 16 inch archival rubber stamp ink and acryl-gouache drawing on watercolor board .  Canson Plein Air Watercolor Artboards are rigid, acid-free, 2 ply (1.5 mm) boards that have been laminated to 129 lb (190 gsm) cold press Canson paper. The drawing is signed by the artist with a vermilion and white signature chop on the front, and with full name and date on the back. Ships mounted in an archival mat ready to pop into a 16 x 20 inch frame style of your choice.
