Five Stone Garden 1-5

Five Stone Garden. 

This is a series of drawings and paintings from August 2017, on 8x8 watercolor paper. Each piece was made by dropping five small rounded Lake Superior stones onto the paper, and drawing them where they landed. Chance operations that lead to Zen observations. 

The upper panel left to right shows the five artworks in the order of making, from simple drawing in ink to full acrylic painting. 

Media: ink, brush pen, watercolor pencil, watercolor, acrylic, and combinations thereof. 

The lower panel shows the sequence I would probably hang the artwork in, with the simple, clean drawings in the middle, and the more complex, colorful art on the outsides.
