This series was made through a ritual of integrating a daily practice of evening walks and making "shadow drawings" while chanting versus from the Lotus Sutra.  The drawings were prompted by the shadows of tree branches which were cast by the evening moon. 

Using a roll of paper and brush and ink, I followed the rhythm of my breath with the movement of the shadows. By doing so I discovered one of my favorite Buddhist teachings of Esho-Funi, “Body and Environment as One”.  

This discovery led to over a decade of the exploration of the variation and line quality in drawing and painting.
