Ordinarily, Nature Painting means a direct translation of nature into colors and forms. In this course, painting of nature is like a bridge from the is-ness of nature to your being.
As we sit in Zazen, so we sit around Buddha Grove with paper and colors: like a sculptor taking away the unnecessary parts of the stone to reveal a unique piece of art, this process is a strong confrontation with one’s conditioning.
True art has nothing to do with technique, but with returning to a sparkling innocence inside. Sitting silently around Buddha Grove will encourage you to find this precious space within, and out of this space painting is pure joy.
