I started drawing Enso circles, a Japanese custom associated with Buddhism. Though I'm not Buddhist, this custom helps me. To draw an Enso circle you meditate for a while, take in a breath, and draw a circle in one breath and one stroke. The circle can be either full or empty–whatever it seems like to you. I paint my circle with black acrylic paint and a sumi-e brush. After I've finished the circle, I date it. You can draw several circles on one page or add color later. Each circle is different.
