Description Enso Aven by accomplished Carmel artist Casey Shannon. Media: Sumi (ink) and Japanese Watercolor. This image was inspired by my granddaughter soon to be born. Her name will be Aven. It is a 15th century Celtic name. Also inspired by 'mountain aven's'. This delicate but sturdy flower grows in high altitudes and is related to the rose.

Elegant Brush Paintings: The Sound of One Hand I am a Contemporary Sumi-e painter reaching beyond the limits of traditional ink painting. I try to capture spirit as the brilliance of ink is transferred to the paper with the stroke of a brush as it is pushed across the surface. The object in your picture seems to 'breathe and take on life', and this breath begins to fill the page with spirit just as it does in all of nature which surrounds us. The inner power of the painted form shines through the ink and the white page. The white space surrounding the painted form becomes as important as the object itself. The ink painting represents soul, spirit, and beauty all at the same time in concert.
