Pastel is a very Western medium, quite unfamiliar in the Far East, but it is well suited for expressing the Zen ideals of tranquility and harmony in natural beauty. Water and fish have become my special favorites. They seem easy for me to represent and convey both energy and inner quiet. They are also wonderfully symbolic, evoking both traditional and personal images. The hope is that the work will bring both pleasure and meaning in the viewing, as it does in the creating.
