Zen Pebbles Standing

Standing Zen Pebbles

 

Making the most of my free time on this May Day holiday and before the onset of chores that have been left far too long, I have created this artwork. I used orange for the colour of the character Chan which means peace of mind and positioned it as one of three pebbles standing on a base pebble. It contrasts with the purple sky background but not too sharply.

I like using pebbles as they are relatively easy to create using Painter and symbolically they can represent many things. They are like a canvas within a canvas as I can overlay meaning onto them, not just Chinese characters.
