Zen Year of the Snake Painting 2013 Original for the Chinese New Year by Seiko illustrator of Zen by the Brush.

Snake Years are sixth in the cycle, following the Dragon Years, and recur every twelfth year. 1905*1917*1929*1941*1953*1965*1977*1989*2001*2013

You will receive a unique, original sumi ink painting. Size is 4" x 9" with red seal on heavyweight watercolor papers by Seiko Susan Morningstar, illustrator of Zen by the Brush. Comes with a # 10 red envelope. All wrapped in cello to protect. Beautiful to send to a friend or for your mediation space. For Birthdays, birth announcement and just to give yourself!

Traditional Zen painting is a unique form of art. Zen art is bold, energetic and direct, depicting an image with a few strokes of the brush to capture and express the essence or spirit of the moment. Once a line is put down, it cannot change. This makes sumi-e ink painting a demanding feat of the brush. But in its direct simplicity, one finds playful profundity that can be appreciated by one and all.

The Snake is strongly related with deep mysticism, valuable wisdom, and knowledge. Most snake people are enigmatic, deep thinking, and maybe the wisest of all Chinese Horoscope signs. A Snake person can evolve to become a philosopher, investigator, scientist, actor, spiritual leader, analyst, doctor, magician, or leader of the back scene.

2012 is the year of the Dragon and I will be adding new paintings weekly, so check in often! http://www.etsy.com/shop/ZenBrush?section_id=10195414
