DescriptionSumi-e by Carmel Artist Casey Shannon. This image was inspired by the spirit that resides in all of nature. A spirit that is ever present and all encompassing. When I painted this Sumi-e, I was experiencing a little turmoil in my life. We all experience bumpy roads along our life journey. As I was painting in my mind during my pre-meditation, I was thinking how we can choose to have our spirits stand tall in the face of uncertainty and upset. My brush than flowed into this creation of Spirit Standing. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the work will be donated to Cancer Research.

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.
