Enso print begins

Today I started transferring my 4 ft. x 4 ft. enso painting (zen circle) to the woodblock at our new Tiger Lily Press studio. I painted it with a very large chinese ink brush. I will experiment by printing it onto canvas and also silk. Photo credit (of me) taken by Susan Naylor at Tiger Lily Press, Cincinnati, Ohio.

That will be fun! And beautiful. Can't wait to see it on silk.

Thanks, Annie. If you've ever printed on silk I'd love to hear any tips you might have. I'm looking forward to experimenting.

Would you ever consider selling a large enso? I have been looking for one … the size that you are talking about.

Yes, I would consider selling a large enso.
